Please read this entire description before purchasing! This is part one of a three part series of this Master Class: Enamel Multi-Layered Panels. Part one is entitled "Introduction to Enamels." You will be able to create 2 layer pieces using blending, textures, color mixing etc. Part two (entitled "Thick Panel Basics") will soon follow and has already been filmed and it is in the editing process. Part three is scheduled to be filmed in November and realeased in December. This is the most comprehensive and the most thorough enamel class that has ever been put out on the net. Just take a look at the Chapter selection below. Paul will walk you through 2 hours and 15 min. of everything you need to know about using enamels in your fused glass work. How to mix them, color chart examples when mixing colors, enamel consistencies, how to fire them, tools to use, how to blend colors and a special segment on creating textures and realistic looking trees... along with three different methods and projects (step by step) on how to use this wonderful, yet complex, material. Paul gives you the knowledge and the skills to be ready to create his signature thick block panels that he is known for and will be introduced in part two of this series. This class is yours and can be watched at any time and never expires. The extensive PDF handouts (found in your PDF and e-book link in your dashboard after purchasing) includes firing schedules and three printable project guides to use while following along with Paul.
After completion of this 3 part Master Class, graduate to the type of stunning work that Paul is known for! Paul will give you the skills to create your own thick enamel panels of beauty and depth without needing the skills of drawing or painting...ANYONE can create panels like these without being a fine art artist. You just need someone to show you how.... *NOTE: All supplies are listed on the bottom of this page. The Glass Muller is Optional and not needed for the video.

I have been wanting to work with enamels for a long time. This masterclass has given me everything I need to take my fusing to a higher quality. Well worth the price for all three Videos.
How to fire deep review by Janetlee on 10/6/2018
I learned so much from Paul’s explanation on how to layer glass for depth. He explained all the issues in layering glass and daming for thick piece. I will watch over again to review all the techniques covered.
Terrific video - I learned a lot!!!! review by Lindsay Blankenship on 10/5/2018
This video is only the first of the three. In it are a lot of explanations and discussion of different enamels and the techniques used to create the depth he gets in his glass. I have admired his work for years, so I am BEYOND thrilled to learn his technique. All the advice and info on enamels, in general, makes this video worth buying. I cannot wait to watch videos 2 & 3!
Awesome review by Barbara on 9/29/2018
Paul hit it out of the ballpark for me love this video
Wow! review by Kristin Quarton on 9/29/2018
I absolutely love this technique. I have made many attempts and feel that I am there now. This first video is one that I refer back to often while learning. Paul is a true gem, and I look forward to more from him.
Great video. review by terri on 9/26/2018
Pauls video is full of information. Looking forward to seeing 2 & 3.
Takes the fear out of painting on glass review by Marian Pyron on 9/26/2018
I've wanted to learn how to paint on glass, especially since I have a stunning view out my front window. Paul's video was made for me! Now I'm ready to paint that beautiful view on glass because his first video is exactly what I see out my window....Mountains! Definitely getting his other videos to expand my abilities since it's like he's right next to you, showing you exactly what to do.
So good......I could hardly wait for Part 2 review by Elisabeth Miller on 9/26/2018
Very good explanation of the process and how to apply it. One could stop here and the information would be very useful.....but why would you. Waiting for Part 2 was hard.
Excellent review by Albert on 9/26/2018
I learned a lot from this introductory video. I was surprised and delighted with the information that was presented, details and instructions. It was my first experience of working with enamels. What really surprised me was that nothing was held back, secrets, processes and schedules were shared to make you successful. Excellent!
Well done review by Hengameh on 9/26/2018
The information and demonstration on this video was very well done.
So much to learn for the price review by Amanda Buzek on 9/23/2018
You learn so much in this video, the price is crazy low. Paul's knowledge of painting on glass is very useful and will make you want to move into video 2 and 3 as soon as you can.
Amazing new direction for my glass art review by Kat on 9/22/2018
Painting on glass is something I have worked to perfect. I have tried all the paints and enamels but I was never really pleased with the results. That has all changed now that I do Paul’s multi-level paintings! I love the depth and atmosphere that is attainable with his process. Can I send a photo of my favorite pieces created the “Messink Way”?
Lots of great information! review by Karyn Vine on 9/21/2018
Very informative video by Paul Messink. It is easy to follow, and very understandable. Because it is Part One (in a three part series) it lays a wonderful foundation to build upon with the subsequent videos. Paul’s explanations and demonstrations are nicely paced. Excellent camera work as well. Cudos to all involved in making this one!
Outstanding technics review by Melissa Coates on 9/20/2018
Mark goes into great detail on using enamels with glass. His glass layering process gives perspective and depth to his pieces. I suggest that you take all of his classes so you can get a complete picture of how to create these beautiful scenic pieces. I am so grateful that he was willing to do an online class.
Great Video review by Sheena Wadlinger on 9/20/2018
Paul's does an excellent job of explaining how to deconstruct an image and make it three dimensional. The information in this video has given me the confidence to try enamels using different techniques. Well worth the investment.
Great Video!!! review by Tyrone Powell on 9/20/2018
Paul Messink does an excellent job on explaining the techniques in this one!!! Enjoyed it!!! Couldn't wait until part-2!!!
Delightful beginning review by Karen Melody Shatar on 9/19/2018
Paul's attention to detail, his ability to explain and to help one to deconstruct an image to reproduce is amazingly clear and coherent. I was able to do these projects with quite surprising success. The principles shared in this tutorial were excellent. Doing the full series is truly well worth the investment,
A True Master clasa review by SANDY TALEN on 9/19/2018
Thick glass firing and enameling it as well, plus art tips from a master.
Well done review by Rebekah Ross on 9/19/2018
I learned much from this video. Well done! I haven't watched the other 2 in the series, but hope they'll cover adjusting the medium to pigment ratio and more techniques for texture and shading.
Great information review by Jackie on 9/19/2018
I learned so much from this video and have gone back several times to review the information to make sure I haven't missed anything. I never could have afforded an in-person class so this has been a great way for me to get the information without the additional expenses involved in other classes.

Great video review by Temple on 9/19/2018

Loved this video! review by Kris on 10/20/2017
The only bad thing about this video has been the wait for the next one! Really enjoyed Paul's thorough explanations.
I cannot wait for part ll & ll. review by Marlene. on 10/19/2017
How wonderful are these glass artists to share their talents. I have loved Pauls work but thought I would never be able to afford to learn from him, then in steps the wonderful Tanya! I really recommend this video to everybody!
Fantastic Value review by iksherman on 10/19/2017
The volume of information shared is unbelievable. Great way to save on travel, class fees, and be able to review technique over and over .
Excellent review by Ann Quinlan on 10/19/2017
5 star video. Paul is a great teacher and learning a new technique was easy to understand. This opens many avenues to set your glass work above others. T
Excellent review by John Gregorich on 10/19/2017
Money well spent. Clear instruction. Not boring. Excellent video quality. Paul is easy to learn from and knows what he is talking about. I will be purchasing part two.
Wonderful!!! review by Sandy Thibault on 10/19/2017
I can't wait for part 2!!! I was scared to use the enamels but Paul makes learning and fun and he is very thorough. Even if you do not want to make the work he does, this is a must have video if you are even thinking of using enamels on any of your glass. I am so grateful to AAE Glass and Tonya for these videos. I cannot say enough good things. Thank you!
Awesome review by Dean E. on 10/19/2017
I appreciate the fact that AAE now has learning at home. The video is extremely professional and I feel like I am actually in the class. Paul is great and very easy to understand. I am addicted to these online videos now! Thanks Paul & AAE.
Excellent review by Marci on 9/20/2017
Treated myself to this for my birthday, 9/21. Was not disappointed. Paul is very through with his descriptions and demonstrations. The demo painting sessions were wonderful. I learned so much that I want to try. So even though I couldn't be there for your grand opening, I got something just as good. Highly recommend this video, even if you don't want to work thick.
Well done. Great demoes support the teachings. review by OKArtist2be on 9/6/2017
The instruction is well done. The demoes given by Paul support the information given. I look forward to Part II & III!
