E-book "Weekend projects: Textured Stripes"
This is the third book in the "Weekend Projects..." series. Now it describes a new technique of glass fusing - Textured Stripes. Six projects are included in the book: two square plates, one rectangular plate, one circular platter, a wall clock, and a decorative wall panel. These projects are sorted in order of their complexity. You may start from the easiest one which does not require advanced skills, and then gradually move to the next more complicated projects.
All the projects presented in the book require several hours for assembling and each can be easily completed during a weekend. The projects do not require any cold working, so all you need is a glass cutter and a kiln. Each project description contains a list of required glass and materials, lots of pictures and drawings explaining details of assembling, and firing schedules.
It's also a separate section which explains some theoretical basics which may help in designing of similar projects. I explained briefly principles of choosing glass colors, avoiding reactions, and predicting final results of optical illusions. In addition each project description has a chapter explaining calculation of required glass dimensions if you decide to make your own works of different size, colors and colorful patterns.
