Nov 18, 2014 – How to use Unique Glass Bubble Paints
This month Karol Macdonald is going to share with us how to use Unique Glass Bubble Paints. This is one of the techniques that Tanya Veit has taught in her “Saturday Night Video Series”. There are two kinds of glass paint Unique Glass offers — Bubble paints and Regular paints.
The Bubble paint is usually fired between layers of glass – but is not limited to being used between glass. The glass used here is Bullseye Tekta 3mm, which is a clear glass and you can create just about anything that your mind can come up with.
Bubble Paint ExampleThis color chip shows bubble paint fused on top of glass and fused in between layers of glass:
The solid square is on the top piece of glass and produces a semi-transparent color that is mottled, slightly textured and the color fires a bit darker.
The random bubble area of the chip is between the layers of glass and shows the color applied solidly then fused.
The lined areas show the product applied in between layers with a 10/0 liner brush and if the lines are not allowed to touch during application you can control where the bubbles will appear.
Karol has been making Candle Screens, Paperweights and Pendants using this technique. She will bring glass and paints for you to create a few pieces of your own – if you want to “play” the cost will be $5.00. Please give Karol a call (925-0910) to let her know you are coming!
