This one-day class will cover the most cost effective ways to use the highly silvered 104 glass including decoration. Precision 104 from Northstar, Double Helix, Trautman Art Glass as well as parts of the Vetrofond and Moretti palette are selected for most interesting results. Several projects will enhance the student’s ability to test colors, mix colors and apply those techniques to bead decoration. Each student will take home a handbook filled with test results utilizing stringer techniques. Each student will gain knowledge of how to test colors for maximum results. Stop wasting that expensive glass and learn how to use it effectively!

Students will supply their own non-silver glass to be used in the class and standard tools. Silver glass will be provided by Southern Flames. A specific materials/supply list will be sent to each student.

Experience level: Beyond Beginners. Students should have completed some form of basic glass bead making instruction, either self–taught or otherwise.
