Celebrated glass artist Christine Stewart brings us a long-anticipated new title. In her signature mosaic style she serves up 18 projects ranging from fused glass dinnerware to stunning mosaic wall art created with fused inclusions.
2. “Inspired” by Frankye Cartner and Suzy Huber
This stained glass pattern portfolio contains 16 designs for panels in a variety of themes. Each project includes recommendations for using wire, bevels or other accents, and a suggested enlargement size. Projects are certain to provide a fun challenge for beginners and intermediate artists alike.
3. Assembling 3D art just got easier with Handy Wedges
These simple non-slip foam rubber blocks offer the perfect solution when you find yourself in need of another set of hands. The triangular shape lends itself to supporting boxes, panels, or nearly any shape as you assemble and solder your projects, all by simply aligning the wedges in different configurations.
4. New Fusible System 96® Glass Colors
Used together, the scrumptious dark brown and vibrant green offer a dynamic pairing perfect for a rainforest color scheme. Apart, they are equally amazing. Chocolate offers up the ultimate “neutral” to make nearly any color pop. Lemongrass is a strikingly different shade between yellow and green that is sunny and fun. Both of these colors look fantastic with nearly any other System 96 glass, making them go-to colors to dress up any design.
5. Morton’s New Mini Surface Plus
This convenient grid system is designed to work with the Portable Glass Shop and other popular Morton brand tools. Assembling the interlocking sections is a snap, and instructions to set up your tools are simple.
