Bead Swap   

Hosted by Karen Crown

Painting and Organic Leaf Forms
“The glass pieces look like they are glowing from within!   [😲] ”  
In this demo I will introduce you to the manipulation of hot glass to create an organic form of a leaf using clear glass. I will then demonstrate how to create beautiful and permanent complex color using oil paint and a little patience.
Any clear glass works with this technique.

Glass Blossoms

Just as we are now opening up into the possibilities of our new post-COVID life, I will create an "off-mandrel" blossoming flower sculpture. I will demonstrate how to create components and work with them cold - even holding some of the parts in my hand while attaching them to the sculpture. By preparing petals and leaves first, I am able to work outwards from the thickest part of the flower without needing to keep everything hot. This style of working with glass probably runs against the grain of everything you've been taught as a beadmaker (always keep it hot!), but greatly increases the possibility and complexity of what can be made. Some pieces I make this way can take up to a month of work but obviously we'll keep it shorter for this demonstration.
