E-book "Weekend Projects: Stringers in glass fusing"
For many of us glass fusing is a hobby and we can dedicate time for it only at weekends. So, it would be great to have instructions which allow to complete a relatively complex project in 2-3 days. In this book I tried to provide day-by-day instructions for four different projects which use one common element: stringers. We often underestimate the power of stringers and do not use them. Meanwhile stringers is an impressive artistic element and this book proofs that.
All these projects require some basic (and sometimes advanced) glass working skills, but if you don't have them now, you can learn from the book how to make glass combing, drill holes in glass, and so on.
All the projects described in the book require different techniques for implementation:
- A rectangular plate "Next generation" requires "3D-chevrons" technique. A new simplified method is described in details only in this book and significantly less labor intensive compared to the original one provided in the previous my book "From scrap to artworks with a vitrigraph"
- A beautiful vase "Tartan napkin" looks like a real fabric napkin vase. This "fabric" is also made of stringers
- A rectangular plate "Bubbled Mondrian" has several new decorative elements which make an illusion of something lightweight and festive. All this decorative elements require stringers for implementation, but instead of stringers you see finally either bubbles or micro "stained glass windows".
- A wall clock "Red Planet" is made using a glass combing technique. Using stringers during combing makes the resultant pattern fine and intricate.
