Simple Glass Crafts
36 Beautiful Projects : Painting, Etching, Stained Glass, & MoreBook - 2002
"Will inspire you."--Timber Homes Illustrated. "Uncomplicated, step-by-step projects for etching, bottle cutting, painting on glass, and working with stained glass."--Library Journal. "There are three dozen projects in this handsome volume. If you want to make a glass project, you'll find something here. There are lots of different approaches to design and materials. The embelishment section is especially appealing and includes jewelry, magnets, and other easy-to-make items."--Creative Crafter.
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!
