2014 Glass Craft & Bead Expo ~ Hot Mosaics & Tempered Glass with Christine Stewart

Join Australian Glass Artist Christine Stewart at the Las Vegas Glass Craft & Bead Expo on Friday, March 28th from 8am-4pm as she shares her various mosaic techniques including her use of No Days Mosaic Adhesive.

Tempered Glass, or safety glass, breaks in a different manner to non-tempered glass; instead of breaking into sharp shards it shatters into a matrix of small pebble shapes which do not have sharp edges. The shattered tempered glass is almost crystalline in appearance and when laid down in a mosaic design has a sparkling textural effect. Combine this with Hot Mosaic Components, the electric colors of Dichroic Glass, or your treasured glass beads and your mosaic projects will take on a very exciting creative form - a new glass adventure to explore!

In this class, you will be working on a clear glass base within a picture frame. You will fire the Hot Mosaic Components of your design in the kiln, be shown gluing techniques and how to lay down your design onto the glass surface with the aim of creating a transparent glass to glass Hot Mosaic project combining the elements of Tempered Glass, Dichroic Glass & Glass Beads, and then add further dimension with surface layering techniques with the addition of Beads and other Fired Components. Reverse painting coloring techniques, gold leaf and decorative papers can also be used to add more depth and shadowy intrigue to the finished piece. Students bring: glass cutting tools, glass mosaic cutters, work surface, Sharpie Marking Pen, small pair scissors, tweezers, notepad & Pen. Wear covered footwear and protective eye wear.
