LOVE this video!! review by Trish Monteforte on 9/9/2019
This is an excellent video! It is well organized, detailed and thorough. Glenda takes you step by step through the process and does not leave any steps out. After watching this video, I was able to make beautiful pieces that people love to see and buy! The video is also conveniently organized into sections so you can easily go back for reference.
Oh the Possibilities! review by Gretchen Mayes on 9/8/2019
After I lost my entire studio to Hurricane Michael last fall, I bought this video hoping I could adapt the process to a very limited working space (my kitchen) and a small Bonnie Glo kiln (13" round shelf)
because I needed to start working and creating to help me move past the devastation. Plus, I loved Glenda's work and wanted so much to create something totally different than I had ever done before. This video not only helped me heal, but I have also discovered a process that has limitless possibilities. I have not only expanded my knowledge base in glass fusing, but I also have created some pretty amazing pieces. Glenda is a natural teacher. Her encouragement to experiment and not to worry if you make a mistake are wonderful words to hear for not only the beginner but the expert as well. I highly recommend purchasing this video as well as her subsequent videos. The technique is unique and it will take your work to the next level!
Fun! review by Linda m pledger on 9/7/2019
I have always loved working with frit, but this video opened up a whole new experience with powders. Fun and easy!
LOVE LOVE LOVE review by Beth on 9/5/2019
I just loved this video, and it blew my mind with all the possibilities of what I could make! Glenda is awesome to watch, and she explains everything so clearly! Easy to follow!
Just like being in a class room! review by Annette Kapfer on 9/4/2019
Wonderful class, directions are right on point and easy to follow. Great way to have fun with powders and go beyond random experiments.
Fantastic Tutorial! review by Michaelene on 9/4/2019
Glenda is an excellent teacher. Very calm and extremely creative. I love the fact that I can go back to the video any time to relearn. I have been interested in everything about frit and she is certainly the person to teach it!
So much fun!! review by Stacey on 9/4/2019
This video was fantastic and inspiring. I love Glenda's work and she made it so simple and easy to follow along with her. Totally encouraging fun and experimentation all the way, thanks!
Wow! review by Lindsay Blankenship on 1/13/2019
I have admired these coral pieces and wished for a long time that I could make glass art as beautiful as Glenda’s corals. This video has opened up a whole new world of glass art for me! I recommend it to anyone who wants to know how to make these beautiful pieces.
Fascinating process, well presented. review by Kathryn on 1/13/2019
I had long admired Glenda's work, curious how these wonderful pieces were made. Glenda reveals the basic process, in her engaging, down to earth, free-form style. So many possibilities for translating these techniques into my own work, my mind is racing!
Excellent introduction to new ways to use frit powder review by John Havard on 1/13/2019
Simple step-by-step instructions for how to build up and personalize frit fused creations. Well worth the money and a very informative video.
Absolutely amazing! review by Rebekah Spoonhour on 1/13/2019
Such a great and fun way to use all that powdered frit! Very easy to follow and you can take this process into so many different directions. I absolutely love the bowl with all the circles. It almost looks like lace! I would highly recommend this video to any and all levels of fused glass artists.
Beautiful outcome review by Bernadette on 1/13/2019
I bought this course to explore more with powder. Worth every penny I paid. Results were amazing even with my tentative approach. If you want to create something with a wow factor but without a lot of fuss, this is the one for you.
Oh, the Places You'll Go! review by Cheryl on 1/13/2019
Having admired Glenda Kronke's work for eons, I was thrilled to see that she was doing a video with AAE Glass. I have wanted to meet her for ages (and take a class if possible). After seeing the video I feel as though I HAVE met her. Glenda's style is approachable and the included materials are excellent. I will admit to being a bit of a skeptic - I typically travel (often hundreds of miles) for a class, and wasn't sure about this whole online learning idea. I was wrong. The video is fabulous, and I cannot wait to get into my own studio and try the techniques for myself. I look forward to participating in AAE's FB group for the video as well. My head is full of ideas....
value review by jim simmons on 1/9/2019
This is one of the best tutorials for the money that I have ever taken
Very simple, but valuable method! review by Sandy Talen on 1/9/2019
Glenda simplifies and explains thoroughly this wonderful method! She tells you everything you need to know to produce very beautiful work.
Excellent review by Clint schrader on 1/9/2019
Her presentation with detail examples are great. As a beginner, I was able to follow along and discription of technique was very help ful. Will watch her other presentations as well.
Excited to try this! review by Traci on 1/9/2019
This video was a pleasure to watch, and I will be trying this technique soon.
So worth it!!! review by Marian Pyron on 1/8/2019
I had seen Glenda's work on pinterest and thought " I wonder how she does it". These are so beautiful! Well, I'm so glad I bought the video because I never would have figured it out and now "I" can make those beautiful projects that I used to just ohh and ahh over!
Amazing video review by Debbie Tamburro on 1/8/2019
I loved the video's. Glenda is a great instructor, down to earth woman who is sharing her technique with those of us that wanrt to learn something new. Love the step by step instruction, color blending . Can't say enough about this fantastic set of video's.
THAT’S how it’s done? Really! review by Kerstin Hilton on 1/8/2019
After admiring Glenda’s work for quite a few years I was so happy to learn she was just sharing the technique. I gave it a whirl, wondering if my first pieces would even come close to what she was showing in the tutorial...and they do!
Inspiring techniques clearly explained review by Yvonne Mathie on 1/8/2019
This video is fantastic! Glenda’s techniques are so inspiring and she explains clearly the steps to make these beautiful projects. I can’t wait to start playing!
Great video on use of powders review by MICHAEL on 1/8/2019
I enjoyed the video the information was presented in a very easy to follow format. I usually try to take a class in person but this was easy and very conveient.
I really enjoyed this video - well done and educational - many more ideas from this - my brain is working overtime. thanks so much!!! review by Shannon Shepherd on 1/8/2019
Quality work nad enjoyed it totally
I loved watching you work. It has given me many ideas. review by Vicki on 12/5/2018
The video is well worth the money, the only thing I found missing and maybe I just haven't found them, but in the video you mentioned with the PDF there would be some patterns for the coral. I would love to receive them if they are available.
