Learn to create soft focus “glass paintings” using System 96® sheet glass and Frit. We will explore creating a dramatic still-life photo and pattern, and then cut pieces of sheet glass from our pattern to create the base image. Frit will then be applied in multiple stages across several firings to create realism, drama and dimension. No drawing or painting skills required, but basic glass cutting skills are recommended.
