How to achieve photo realism by painting with frit

Use frits and powders to develop images that are tight and highly detailed or loose and impressionistic. Working in a panel format, Michael shares his extensive techniques over this three day workshop. The class focus will be the principles of multiple firing to create rich, vibrant panel pieces. You will learn how to control color density, shading, how to create a soft or hard edge line and when to use it. There will be enough studio time to create technique samples and develop your own personal color palette.

Uroboros is proud to host Michael’s class offering each participant a personalized factory tour and class access to every color and frit size we make. Join us to experience the ambience of being in a working glass factory and take advantage of Special Event Shopping in our racks.
