Hand-painted glass is everywhere--in the windows and on the shelves of everything from chic boutiques to home d├ęcor stores. But, why buy, when making your own masterpieces is so much more fun and personal? It's simple too, with paints that air dry or set in a conventional oven, delightfully original techniques, templates, and inspiring projects that range from very easy (small jewel-like votives that light up the night) to complex (a printed leaf table). Pretend you're a professional artist as you drip and pour your way to an improvisationally designed set of "Pollock's Bowls." Randomly placed dancing triangles and spirals turn plates and wine glasses festive. Plus: a sun lantern in hot, textured colors; a wedding bowl that actually features the couple's name; frosty mugs; a retro cookie jar; plates adorned with motifs inspired by ancient cave drawings, and lots more.

  1. I'd love to buy this book. I am a glass painter and can't get enough books on this topic. It's nice to see unique ideas.
