Paint the backs of leaves and flowers with specially formulated vitreous enamel and use them to print the center section of a beautiful plate, suncatcher, tile, or night light. Add colorful pieces of glass to create a border around your print. During the class you will learn basic cutting techniques and how to mix and use the vitreous enamel.

Please bring several leaves or ferns (4” or smaller) with pronounced veins and an N100 or P100 dust mask. (Masks can be purchased from a hardware store.) You may also bring small flowers. Note: Petals that are very delicate do not hold up well to the paints.

We will heat your design in a kiln until the glass melts and then heat it a second time, as needed, to slump it into a small plate. If you are not making a plate, a second firing will not be necessary.

You can pick up your project after it’s been fused and annealed (heated and cooled gradually to remove thermal stress) or we can mail it to you for an additional fee of $7 payable to the instructor.
