Fused Glass Tutorials & Books

Stand It Up!
$18.50 USD. The link to download it will be emailed to you. 
In this e-book I offer step by step easy to follow instructions for 12 fused glass stands including variations. They are all surprisingly sturdy and can be simple and discrete or highly decorative to complement your glass art. The instructions are for all levels. The basic construction is detailed for those who are new to fused glass and more advanced fusers will appreciate the instructions for incorporating techniques such as melts and combing. I also discuss how to eliminate and diminish seams as well as how to fix or alter a stand. All the information you need to create a one of a kind stand is there.

The designs include stands for all shapes of flat panels, dimensional objects such as bowls and plates plus stands for free form art that mount on a rod or glass stem. Every stand is customized to suit the glass art no matter the size. Fused glass picture frames are a prefect match with many of the stands so I’ve also included instructions on how to mount a photo pocket. You will also find two fun art projects to mount in a block stand and instructions for making two simple slumping molds as an alternative to buying a more traditional mold.

This e-book is 74 pages with over 225 color photos illustrating every step. Fusing schedules are included for Bullseye glass and System 96 glass in both Fahrenheit and Celsius.

Forget buying another stand make it yourself!

The instructions in this e-book are illustrated with easy to follow photos so everyone can learn how to create the realistic organic shapes and delicate details that bring these lilies to life. There are twelve designs that are inspired by an existing Oriental or Daylily variety and specific instructions are given for each flower so you can easily recreate your favorite. Explore powder application techniques, learn how to make two types of stamens and three display options. You will also find; materials and tools lists, printable full size pattern templates, firing schedules in both Fahrenheit and Celsius and multiple DIY solutions.

The two instructional videos feature Stargazer lily #5 and Daylily #10. They show every step and each demonstrates a different method for powder application, slumping and mounting the flowers for display. The running time is approximately 55 minutes each.

The Download Package includes the Fused Glass Lilies PDF e-book and two video turtorials in MP4 format.   

The Mini Cone mold was created specifically for making these flowers. It measures approximately 3-1/8" tall and has a top diameter around 1/2". It is hand crafted so there will be slight variations in the size and shape but the quality is of the highest standard and guaranteed. If you have a large kiln I recommend buying two. One flower is never enough! For those who are more budget conscious there are DIY alternatives in the "Fused Glass Lilies" e-book using supplies from a hardware store but assembly is required.
