What is embossed glass painting?

Embossed glass painting is derived from the ancient art of stained glass painting, the beautiful styles which are often seen on the windows of religious buildings and on high doors.

The history of glass painting goes back hundreds of years to as early as the 9th century in Germany, and at one point it was the dominant form of painting across Europe. During these periods, millions of people were unable to see the great works of art created by leading artists of the time, but were able to enjoy the painted glass that decorated the many medieval religious buildings standing across the continent.

Glass painting reach its height of popularity in the 17th century with the glorious stained glass windows seen in Gothic cathedrals. These would often depict religious figures and scenes from revered religious textbooks, and many of these can still be seen in the same buildings today.

What happens in the embossing glass painting class?

This is an online course that will teach you how to balance space, learning how to merge the background and the object, along with freehand sketching and also using a 3D embossed effect.

There will be three standard sizes available, although bespoke sizes are available if requested in advance. You’ll also learn how to outline, which plays an essential part in being able to create unique pieces of painted glass art.

I will guide you through every step of the process to help you understand the basics and fundamentals so you can continue to practice and learn at home. There are different styles and techniques that can be used with glass painting, some of which we will also cover in the class.
