Dear fusing friends:
This is a momentous day for me, because I have FINALLY finished the ebook I have been promising to do since last year. Honestly, I had no idea what I was committing to when I first got the nifty idea to write an ebook.
People like Paul Tarlow, Bob Leatherbarrow, Dale Keating, and others set a very high bar with their own books; I wanted my ebook to be as close to meeting that bar as possible. I feel like it's right up there with them.
Exploring Modeling Glass: The Basics and More is essential reading for any artist looking to incorporate Modeling Glass into their work to achieve amazing dimensional effects. The first ebook about Modeling Glass, it is a definitive guide to creating with this exciting new product.
Exploring Modeling Glass contains 81 pages of clear, step-by-step instructions and 160 photos. Featuring seven complete projects, you will learn the basic techniques for mixing, sculpting, and combining Modeling Glass with enamels. The book includes project templates and all firing schedules (designed to work with both Bullseye and System 96) in both Fahrenheit and Celsius. This ebook is suitable for all levels of experience.
There's even a chapter that showcases the work of other artists who have done amazing things with Modeling Glass. For me, this is one of the most exciting aspects of creating Modeling Glass: seeing what fusers accomplish with it, and hearing their comments about how the product makes it possible for them to achieve effects that previously had been extremely difficult or impossible.
My deep appreciation to the artists who contributed to the book, who generously shared their ideas and suggestions, and who kept gently nudging me about getting it done.
