Painted Wine Glasses - Sa8/26b 

Ever wanted to learn how to paint on glass but had no idea where to begin? This is for you! Part technical and a lot creative... have some fun with others who want to discover something new!

CLASS FEE: $29 / $25 Studio members + $10 supply fee paid at class

During this three hour session, you will be introduced to a number of special glass paints and get a feel for how to use them. Learn the properties of the paints and what they can do, learn how to get your design onto the glass, and how to get your creative juices flowing!

Participants will be able to choose a pre-planned design to replicate on glass -- poppies or chili peppers, or create your own design. You can literally paint on any glass surface... wine glasses, vases, candle holders, plates, bowls, etc. Clear smooth glass is best to start with. You should be able to complete two individual pieces depending on the size and complexity of your project.

Two wine glasses are included in the class fee with additional glass available for a small fee. If you bring your own, the extra fee will be for paints. There will be a variety of glassware pieces for you to choose from to paint and/or you can bring something of your own to paint. Thrift stores are great places to find all kinds of inexpensive glass!!! (think Savers, Value Village, Good Will, etc.)

Glass paint dries fairly fast, but needs to dry for at least 48 hours and then heat cured (baked in your oven) for 30 minutes to permanently adhere the paint to your pieces for long term endurance. You will be sent home with instructions for this part!

About the Artist: Sue Daugherty is self-taught in glass painting, something she discovered about ten years ago. She has taught both adults and children how to do what she has learned. Designing custom pieces upon request is one of her favorite things to do.
