• Advanced Glass Fusing Workshop
Excited about glass fusing? Want to learn more? Continue your
education at rattarart Studios with the Advanced Glass Fusing
Workshop. The main focus of this day is devoted to a couple of
new ways to assemble your glass projects: "Full Fritting", and
"Clear Capping". Both of these techniques allow you to create a
glass piece with a completely flat, smooth surface.
Your imagery is captured "inside"--adding a touch of depth and
a hint of mystery. Moving through two different projects we use
clear frit in a completely new way from the
Intro Workshop, and really push
our glass cutting skills into precise and challenging
directions. The day also includes valuable discussions about the ins
and outs of volume control and firing times and temps...important aspects
in determining why your glass projects turn out they way they do. And it is
a chance to ask lots of questions and share great energy with other learners.
