Surfing Safari Fantastic review by Esther Martinez on 9/18/2019
This technique of combining different colors of powder frit allows you to be as wild and creative as you can be. The patterns that you can create are limitless to be used in any shape of platter, bowl or art piece.
Another great video! review by Kathryn on 1/13/2019
Glenda provides an overview highlighting and perfect marriage of powders and sheet glass. While the video only covers the creation of a single piece, the techniques and tips presented inspire the imagination. Glenda's down to earth style, and come what may attitude, put the viewer at ease.

A fresh take on pattern bars review by Bernadette Carter on 1/13/2019
I was so excited by this video that I couldn't wait to try it. I live in UK and prefer to use System 96. I could barely wait until my glass had completely cooled before slicing it open. Even though I was a bit too hot with my kiln temperature, (with Glenda's, I think you can still see the powder texture), the results are outstanding. So happy!
