About This Class

I wanted to show the details of how I set up the screens I use in my powder printing studio work, so that both beginners and those with lots of experience can get a good idea of how this process happens. This of course is only one way, but I’ve found it excellent when using the very fine powder most often used in painted enamels on fired glass. It’s can also be used when using the coarser Frit powders used in general firing. The powder stays dry, and there is no mess.

For aspiring Authors - selecting the right genre to writ under is often a challenge, but one of the nicest ones is Romance. Everyone wants a bit of Romance in their lives, and people love to read about other peoples lives, and to watch them on TV and in the movies. Look at the success of some of the long running "Soaps". My master course on How to "Write  A Romance Story" will get you going in the right direction easily and quickly. Really, it's not as hard as you think.

For creative people who like to work with glass, I believe that there's a creative side in us all. Consider the wide range of subjects I teach. They are all subjects that I have learnt in order to further enhance my own creative energies in Fused Glass creation, just as you can. Fused Glass is such a beautiful medium to work in, and you can create beautiful pieces from tiny jewellery pieces up to shimmering table ware.  Check out my courses related to Glass Fusing and Photoshop and I'm sure you'll be walking away with a masterpiece of your own in no time.

Computer technology may seem like a black art to many, but again, I wanted to overcome my natural inclinations to shun this area. To my amazement I discovered a world of creativity awaited me, from writing the actual programs to run application on my iPhone, to the design work necessary to create the art work I needed to enhance these little programs. I've been programming now since the early 1980s, but still come back to my first love - Writing.
