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. This is for mixing large batches of enamel.

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!

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

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!
