The Glass Painting Book Summary

The Glass Painting Book: Over 20 Projects, 100 Trace-Off Patterns by Jane Dunsterville

Taking inspiration from the luminous beauty of stained glass, painting on glass is a simple yet dramatically effective decorative technique which involves little cost and, with the help of this book, can be enjoyed by all artistic abilities. A complete introduction to the craft, it contains a complete guide to materials and techniques, a host of projects to try, a library of trace-off motifs and an invaluable trouble shooting section. Decorate plates, glasses, bottles, trinket boxes, mirrors, picture frames, vases, cabinet doors, storage jars and many other items with the ideas presented here. Detailed step-by-step instructions are accompanied by specially commissioned colour photographs of the projects to ensure success every time. Once you have started painting on glass, you will find it hard to stop, and will never look at a plain glass surface in the same way again!
