If you sometimes struggle with your glass painting, there are 3 problems you might need to fix ...
Problems #1 and #2 are obvious.
But problem #3 - well, in our 15 years of teaching, all our students were surprised.
Are you OK if I explain?
So Problem #1 - Your Brushes, Tools & Paints
Obvious, for sure:
You must have good tools to start with
For instance you need a palette, a palette knife, a tracing brush, a badger blender, a wooden stick for highlighting, and an applicator brush like this:
You don't need much.
But what you have, it must be right ...
Yes, it must be right - or else you just make difficulties for yourself.
That's why we prepared this ebook for anyone who has doubts about their brushes, paints and tools.
You even get a list of websites and suppliers:
OK, that was easy, so let's deal with problem #2 now ...
Problem #2 - Technique
For example, if it’s tracing you find difficult, technique is how you hold your brush, how you load your brush and shape it, how you use your bridge:
As you might imagine, technique takes more time to solve than learning what to buy and where to find it.
All the same ...
All the same, we worked hard at it and filmed a complete foundation course where you can practise and get confident with the key techniques.
You can't buy this course right now - it's not on sale.
You see, we only run it twice a year.
That's how we give our students the time they need to learn.
But if you're interested, we can email you when we next run it:
Moving on now, because I said 3 problems and so far I've mentioned 2.
Problem #3 is: How You Mix Your Paint
Yes, how you mix it:
This is just the times we live in.
We’re used to everything being ready-made.
We want everything on-demand.
And glass paint is not like that
It's not like that at all.
You mix it for yourself, you look after it while you’re painting, you protect it overnight, and you restore it next time you want to paint.
All of which takes time.
All of which takes skill.
And the problem is, you’re unlikely to work it out for yourself.
It’s actually surprising how you do it. You don’t do it like you think, because its ingredients react differently from other things you’ve met. And unless you know this, you’re going to mix it wrong.
Worse: people always “correct” the one thing they shouldn’t! They think it's too dry then they add more water - a big mistake. Adding more water is like slamming your foot on the gas when you need to hit the brakes!
It’s not your fault - I’ve haven’t ever found a book which tells it like it is:
- Most books spend a paragraph or two, no more than that.
- Most books say to mix a teaspoonful.
- Most books tell you to grind it with a knife ...
... when actually a spoon works best - yes, you heard me right, I said a spoon like this:
Now if I were starting out again, me I'd want to mix good paint to start with.
Because always: the fewer things you worry about, the faster you’ll improve.
Now if you understand this way of thinking, I think you’ll like this course:

So we'll show you how to leave your paint:
But what happens when you want to paint the next time? What do you need to do before you start?
In this course you'll also discover the correct way 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:

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. 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.)
"So why a lump of glass paint? What's wrong with mixing just a teaspoonful?"
After all, all the books say just to measure out a tiny quantity of glass paint.
So 3 problems when you mix a teaspoonful of glass paint are:
- It dries out quickly on your palette;
- Your supply can run out just when you're in the middle of tracing or flooding or shading, so you must stop what you're doing and mix more paint;
- You can't be sure your new batch will be the same ratio of glass paint : water : gum Arabic, so it might feel different to paint with, and - this is the key problem - it could fire differently.
A lump of glass paint - water, gum Arabic and vitreous enamel like Reusche's Tracing Black (DE401) - solves these 3 big problems:
- A lump is better at retaining moisture, so it only dries out slowly;
- Whenever you need more, you just cut another slice, dilute it with a little water, and you're ready - quick and easy;
- You can be confident each slice is like the one before it i.e. you can get to know your paint: it's predictable.
There are 7 benefits in all.
You learn them through the videos.
You also learn just the right amount of water (surprisingly little) and gum Arabic to add so that you make a lump (and don't make soup which dries like concrete).
There is a method.
You learn it through the videos.
“Are these videos like I can watch on YouTube?"
I'm glad you mentioned that.
In fact we use 3 cameras. One left, one right, and one above. That way we can always draw your attention to what you need to see.
So no. Nothing like you watch on YouTube.
"How much time will I need to finish this course?"
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 -
