Guest Instructor Jan Schrader Demystifies Mica Powder

Events and Contests

Imagine creating waterfalls that actually shimmer or night stars that really twinkle. Delphi is bringing in guest instructor Janet Schrader to show students at the Lansing Creativity Center how to do just that. Janet will show students how to achieve different textures, colors and effects with mica powder. Mica can be used to liven up Christmas ornaments, jewelry, mixed media projects and more. Each student will make a pendant and several samples to take home. Class will be held Thursday, Jun 24th from  6:00 pm - 9:00 pm.

Glass Artist Janet Schrader lives outside Olympia WA where she has been doing glass since 1979. She has won both local and national competitions for her stained glass and jewelry designs. Always wanting to find something exciting and different to do with glass kept Janet creating and developing new designs and one-of-a-kind works of art. The same desire for something new has lead her to write 11 art glass design and instructional books that are distributed by CKE publications.

@kaylock1001 there are a LOT of ways to use Mica powder. It can be placed loose between glass layers, it can be mixed with a glass medium - like Thompson Klyr Fire and brush it on glass, it can be used in flameworking and other applications as well. You may be able to find a class in your area by looking at the dealer locator at the bottom of our web page or feel free to call our customer care center for personal assistance.

This does me know good! How can I learn from a class held 5 years ago. I can not find a video to help me. I've gone through your video listing and they all come back to me as not available. KL
