Painted Beads Tutorial - link

For those of you that have become widly enthused along with me about painting on glass and applying to beads - I have started a "how to" page on my website -

If you have questions and especially if you have pics of what your doing please send to me as I'll post. Dont worry about mistakes we want to hear about them so other learn -

Just go to my website and there is a link on the front page to the how to section

Wow! even in its unfinished state is a wonderful tutorial. Can't wait to see it when you've finished and added the pictures!

Re: Painted Beads Tutorial - link

Seeing the pics will make much mores sense to what I have written - when you see how I apply the base bead to the flat glass and as I work it around the bead will make it all the more appealing and easier for everyone.

But remember I am counting on you to tell me if you see another way, or if you find a techique to hard to understand - let me know -
I just want to share the excitment of this new way of doing beads especially for those that came from painting backgrounds

heh heh heh....be careful what you ask for! My work history includes proofreading (works better to proof someone else's writing than one's own), technical writing, and course development. I regularly proof a friend's beading kit patterns and make recommendations as to how they can be improved for clarity and consistency. (Her name is Doris Coghill--she teaches all over the country.)

Re: Painted Beads Tutorial - link

Yippee!! Can't wait until you insert images. Wow, your latest painted beads are great. You've come a long way in what ...just a week or two? Talk about a fast ride on the learning curve!! I'm going to try painting and fusing, before doing the beads. I want to make a couple of painted cabachons to shape on lapidary wheels and set in silver. I'm wondering if I have to worry about the tracing lines burning out at full-fuse temperature. I've never used the Reusche E-401 between layers of glass before. Do you think the lines will stay strong if sandwiched between layers of glass?? I know I have to paint trace lines - fire -- then lay the color (I'm going to use Paradise) then fire again to burn out binder. Then I'm wanting to have the image encased between the layers of glass. I'm wondering if I should paint first on a base, then fire clear over the top. Or should I do a reverse painting on clear, flip over and fire over a base? Should I fire longer at a lower temp to keep the trace lines from burning out? You have a Hoaf Speedburn kiln?? Lucky Girl! That must make it so much more effecient and enjoyable doing glass painting. I might just have to save my pennies. Are they available in US yet, or did you have to have it shipped from overseas? And, also any tips to prevent bubble trappage? (for painting and fusing) I hate it when a beautiful fused piece has a big bubble in it. I know sometimes the gasses release from the paints create bubbles. Anyway, Have I asked enough questions?!? I suppose I should save some for later. Great job on the tutorial!! Looking forward to more. Kelly

Re: Painted Beads Tutorial - link

Dread -

You're painted beads are fabulous! I love Amy's work too! I've drooled over Bronwen Heilmen's beads for a few years now and never able to truly afford them! They're worth every penny but if it's a kiln or a Heilmen bead - aww shucks! I shoulda bought the bead! LOL!

I have been admiring the lovely work you're doing! I keep checking your site to see if you're selling any of those beads yet, but no! Dang!

Funny - Just before I got onto WC! this afternoon, I ordered a set of the Paradise Paints! So happy to see a tutorial! I haven't gone to your website yet but will. I expect to have to experiment alot and wondering if I have bought a large enough size :-)

Thanks for sharing your enthusiasm!I've definitely caught the bug!
Cindy

Wow! Thanks so much for sharing all this information. A great tutorial!!

Similar to Kelly, I would love to try this in a fusing application. Hopefully, someone can answer her questions.

Re: Painted Beads Tutorial - link

They say that you should fire the reusche and paradise paints first before sandwiching -to burn off binders - once sandwich they will stand up to the full fuse.

Deb - you know the biggest problem in glass painting, is first you have to be able to draw!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOL No way on earth can I draw, which has always been the biggest disappointment in my life.

Re: Painted Beads Tutorial - link

Hey Maureen - they call the paint Trace Black - because ---- you use it to trace pics - ta da ! Traditional Glass Painting isnt all trace - yes there are talented people who can draw - but find a pic you like and put on a light table an trace with the trace black and voila you have a pic to color all your own !!!!

Keep checking the tutorial - I keep remembering things, embellishing and adding pictures

Didnt realize how big a job till you want pics of each phase

Hey Judy, nice to see another tech writer ... I am also a tech writer for a currently-infamous software company!

Re: Painted Beads Tutorial - link

I have a lot of the pictures up now on the site ( had to take a break today to build a shed so my Hoaf kiln has a home !)

Winston - are you using paints on your beads ? or Painting glass onto your beads for that effect ??

Were talking painting

Here are some samples
