Clear and easy to follow review by Lindsay Blankenship on 1/13/2019
This video builds on the first one. Linda’s instructions are easy to follow. The handouts are extremely helpful. This is a technique that anyone can do, yet the finished pieces look sophisticated and complicated
Great technique - Great value review by Sharon Marks on 1/13/2019
This technique can be used to create beautiful, unique pieces. As simple as it is, it would have been very costly to recreate the process on my own. It makes much more sense to have the expert show us how it's done! Great value.
Great tutorial! review by Claudia on 1/13/2019
I absolutely loved this video, Glenda explained the process very well. I was surprised st how good my first project turned out!
I’ll definitely be ordering more videos,
Fantastic review by Peggy North on 1/13/2019
This is AMAZING. I have admired her work for years and never believed I would be fortunate enough to learn it. She is a great instructor with clear directions. She is very down to earth and positive about everyones ability to take this technique and make it your own. Thanks Glenda and AAE
Keep it Coming! review by Cheryl on 1/13/2019
Oh, my poor head! It's going to explode with all these ideas that Glenda Kronke is putting in there. I cannot believe that I now have the ability to watch the video over and over again. It's like having Glenda right beside me in my studio ("let's put it in the oven!") I especially appreciate the humility with which Glenda approaches her work. She doesn't give herself enough credit for the absolutely pioneering work she has done, and continues to do. PLUS she uses the most basic of tools (a cardboard tube!) - no fancy schmancy stuff needed, just your imagination and a little help from a friend.
Excellent course review by Bernadette Carter on 1/13/2019
This is the type of MOOC I love. The content flows and the process is easy to follow. She is very encouraging and expects this to be the start of your version of the technique. She generously shows and tells you how she creates her work whilst encouraging you to do your own thing.
Awesome review by Marcel Bridges on 1/12/2019
Wow! This is a spectacular video I have learned so much. I really like Glenda's teaching style and her work is absolutely stunning. I can't wait to make these pieces and I will be buying more of her videos . Thank you AAE Glass for offering these videos to us growing glass artist!

I am growing as an artist!! review by Marian Pyron on 1/8/2019
I'm so glad I bought the first video! With the second one I learned so much more and can't believe I can now make these beautiful projects! Can't wait to do my next show! By adding new pieces to my repertoire it lets my customers know to always expect more from me and not feel like my work is stale. I'm growing as an artist!!
Brilliant!! review by Lindsay Butler on 1/8/2019
I just love Glenda's work - and to be able to make these amazing pieces for myself - is just AWESOME!! I have hardly stopped using the technique since purchasing the video and the results have got me very excited!
It’s a drape! review by Kerstin Hilton on 1/8/2019
Glenda’s notes that accompany each video cover everything that I need to make my own art pieces inspired by this technique. So gad she took time to explain the need for the bubble squeeze and the long annealing time. Super helpful!
Great instruction and fabulous piece review by Jill on 1/8/2019
Fabulous piece - cant wait for the powders to arrive to try it.
Many thanks to Gail for taking the time to reply to my email explaining why the firing time was about 15 hours long, much longer than I would usually fire for.
Only improvements would be to include schedule in degrees C as well as F and to show more colour combinations that would be as effective. Of course it could be a bit cheaper too - not that I dont appreciate the time and effort that goes into developing a new technique etc of course !
Overall love it !
Another amazing video from Glenda! review by Yvonne Mathie on 1/8/2019
This video is fantastic like the first one! Glenda teaches how to make another amazing project and gives lots of inspiration. Well worth the price!

Love this video review by Sheena Wadlinger on 1/8/2019
I have been wanting to learn how to make coral designs and this is the perfect way to learn how to do it. And now I also know how make leaves and other designs. The instructions are very good and easy to follow. The nice thing about videos is that you can always go back and review the instructions any time.
Oh my, oh my, oh my! review by Jyl O'Neal on 11/28/2018
This video is AMAZING. Very good instructions that are easy to follow. I found this to be a great value, and would cost a whole lot more to travel for a face to face class. I took a ton of notes, and am really looking forward to making some coral!
