This is the true story of how my first teacher showed me how to mix my paint.
Take glass like this for the palette
And a knife like this
Now measure a small quantity of tracing black
And place it on the palette
Sprinkle it with gum Arabic powder
Mix again ...
... until the paint is smooth
Now take a glass painter's tracing brush like this
But all of this is bad advice
so try not to cuss when things go wrong
Now me - I'm a respectful and obedient student.
Therefore I believed this nonsense for one whole year - a year! - of evening classes.
I did what my teacher said.
And she did what the books said.
All of it wrong.
And so that year I didn’t learn to trace or shade.
I blamed myself when I should have found a better recipe.
That's natural for a beginner: you think it's you, you take the blame.
But then I joined a studio as apprentice.
There I got to see paint I really needed:
There I learned a better way to mix my paint.
In fact I learned I had a choice:
Either I control the paint.
Or the paint controls me.
You won’t be surprised to learn which path I chose.
That's how my tracing improved each day.
My shading too.
No more fights with my paint - I was in charge.
I mixed the paint the way I liked it.
And then the paint did what I asked it to.
So here’s the problem: most books are full of rubbish about how to mix your paint.
But rubbish all the same.
This rubbish costs you time and money.
And it’s frustrating - it eats your confidence.
That’s why we filmed a course on how we do it here:
How To Mix A Perfect Lump Of Glass Paint
We'll show you everything you need to know:
You’ll learn how to mix a small lump of paint and get comfortable with the technique
We'll show you the ingredients, the proportions, the exact recipe we use.
It only takes 10 minutes to mix a perfect lump of glass paint.
But these 10 minutes will change the way you trace and shade forever.
And in case you're wondering how you know you've mixed the paint the way it needs to be, we've also got that covered.
You'll learn how to test your paint
Testing is important, because testing gives you confidence.
Then you can focus calmly on the work in front of you.
Later, when you finish working for the day, wouldn't it be nice if you leave everything a particular way so that, when you next paint, you can start as soon as possible?
So you'll learn how to leave your paint
But what happens when you want to paint next time?
What do you need to do before you start?
In this course you'll discover how to revive your paint next time you use it
You'll see the consistency you should aim for,
because this consistency is what will give you lovely paint for tracing and shading
And it happens to all of us - sometimes the paint dries out completely. Don't worry though: it's not a problem.
You'll learn how to revive a rock-hard lump of glass paint
And as soon as you're confident:
You'll learn how to save time and mix a BIG lump of glass paint that'll last you several weeks or even months
"What's the cost?"
$15 so you see exactly how to mix, test, store and revive your glass paint.
A once-in-a-lifetime investment in yourself which leaves you free to focus calmly on you painting (because you know your paint is right):

I've watched & read this course several times, and I seem to learn more with each viewing. Using the information in the course, I mixed a lump several days ago, let it sit overnight and then began a most pleasant day of painting.
Over the years, my flooding was somewhat uncertain and often blistering. But thanks to you, I now realize I just wasn't recharging my brush often enough, so the distribution of gum and paint was uneven. The three test pieces I did this week came out smooth and well fired.
Your attention to one of the most basic, fundamental and perhaps most misunderstood skills, mixing paint, is certainly appreciated and will raise the level of any craftsman who takes the information and applies it in an inquisitive, bold and thoughtful manner.
Suffice it to say, you've done a great job! (Tom M.)
“Are these videos like I can watch on YouTube?"

About 3 hours.
Just 3 hours and we show you skills you'll never learn from books.
And at the end you'll have a lovely lump of paint yourself: mix great paint to start with, then you'll really make progress with your tracing and shading -

You see, when you learn to mix great paint, you’ll find it so much easier to trace and shade the way you want to.
For your own good, and at no risk to your bank balance, I hope you take this course.
