Design & Unwind - For November's session, we used a pour paint technique and/or paintbrushes to paint wineglasses. The photos below show the works in progress; the glasses were unable to travel at the end of the session because they needed some time to dry. Still, we can tell that the simple technique provided stunning results! This project was offered just in time for a season of gift giving, but the glasses are so beautiful that we may want to keep them for ourselves! (Or we may decide to make many, many more for our friends and family members.) Click on an image below for a larger view. Visit our Facebook page to view even more pictures from the evening and to view photo albums from previous sessions.
