Tools & Materials
This is what you need:
- Sticks and needles which you can make or improvise for yourself
- Glass paint, gum Arabic and silver stain
- Kiln and controller, kiln trays (coming soon)
- Light box, palettes, palette knives, painting bridge, mixing bowl, jam jars and paint covers (coming soon)
Which represents a large sum of money. This is because you can’t do glass painting on the cheap – because if you get the cheapest, or if you don’t get what you really need, you’ll simply waste your money.
It’s just the same with teaching and instruction. Yes there’s a huge amount of high quality free information on this site. But beyond a point we must all invest in ourselves by paying in some way for the knowledge we need.
Bad brushes loose their hair.
Bad kilns ruin your glass.
Bad teachers don’t tell you the inside details which make the world of difference to your success as a glass painter.
Therefore invest in yourself. It’s fine if this takes time. After all, your beautifully painted glass can last for centuries.
