This class is so easy it will scare you!!! This class is to teach you how the different COE numbers work with your glass colors. Your question: Does is matter? Yes it does!!!


In this class you can choose which affects you like the best, and how hot you want to fire!


The painting in this class is very simple so you can concentrate on the firing information we will be talking about!!! In class you will be doing two Sun Catchers and a surprise piece. You can choose a different COE glass for each of the sun catchers if you want to see the difference. The size of sun catchers are an average of 5 by 4 inches.  In class you will receive a Brush to use, and keep. Also a few other surprises!

Airbrushing and Raku, two of my favorite things to do!!! The size of this vase is 7 ½ in high and 10 in wide.


 In class we will be airbrushing a background behind the design, applying the design, and adding glass frit for color in the design. In this class we will be using the New 900 Bellissimo Black for detail. It is a wonderful product. This is a very easy and fun class.
