Summary

Summary

Give your glass some personality! If you're like millions of crafters, you've already experienced the pleasure of painting glasses--but now it's time to go beyond the brush and expand your techniques! Every one of these designs is perfect for the beginner, and the projects reflect a variety of styles, from luscious florals to Eastern minimalism. Etching has become simple and safe, thanks to creams and liquids that produce a frosted, permanent finish in minutes. Use them for a vine mirror or a glamorous panorama on a picture frame. Capture the light with shimmering stained glass-detailed explanations put it well within your grasp. Make a cut-and-polished beveled panel or a graceful tree lampshade. You'll find a range of witty embellishments, too, like glued-on marbles, magnets, and beads, plus cut-bottle projects. And, painters, don't worry: there are still some great ideas here for you, too! A Selection of F & W's Book Clubs.

Library Journal Review

These are guides for the surface decoration of commercially available glass objects. Le Van's book is a collection of uncomplicated, step-by-step projects for etching, bottle cutting, painting on glass, and working with stained glass. The finished products include tableware and decorative sun-catchers. Professional glass engraver Mocatta provides a manual of techniques for artists who use lettering in their engraving designs. She discusses tools and the critical considerations when designing glass objects. Both books are suitable for public library crafts collections, and the Mocatta book would also be useful in academic arts collections. (c) Copyright 2010.
