Please read this entire description before purchasing! This is part two of a three part series of this Master Class: Enamel Multi-Layered Panels. The wait is over! Part 1 of this series received rave reviews and now Paul is back continuing your education on creating thick panels using his signature technique. Paul will walk you through creating 6 layer painted panels using contact paper, a brush & a palette knife. ANYONE can do this. His generosity with his information, tips and tricks will astound you. This video class includes two full length project demos along with a break down (layer by layer) of how Paul created his famous Tividale Park & Light Rain pieces. An extensive lecture and demo is also included on how to fuse thick panels while eliminating bubbles! This has been his most guarded secret...til now. Firing schedules are also discussed and Paul will include schedules for glass art pieces up to 12 layers thick! Oh we forgot to mention the best part...NO EQUIPMENT IS NEEDED FOR Paul's technique! Paul will show you how to fire the thick pieces so NO COLDWORKING is needed. You do not need a saw, a lapwheel, a sandblaster...none of it! After watching this session, you will be able to create your own thick panels using the basics and guidelines from Paul, along with tricks & tips to produce quality and gallery worthy art glass.
*Part three is scheduled to be filmed in November and realeased in December. This will include painting techniques to enhance your skills and create breath taking scenery. 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 two 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.

Paul doesn't disappoint! review by terri johansson on 10/22/2018
I've been a long time fan and am so happy I bought his video series! Very well done!
Excellent review by Kim on 10/8/2018
Excellent for both work with Paul’s style of landscape panels and HUGELY helpful for working with thick panels of glass in general.
Best Masterclass!!! review by Kathy on 10/8/2018
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.
Awesome review by Barbara on 9/29/2018
Love Paul’s technique I have tried his technique and just love it
A great follow up to Part 1 review by Shannon Mabry on 9/29/2018
He's very skilled with enamels which helps augment an industry stronger in use of frit for imagery. He's conquered the battles of bubbles and shares that technique with firing schedules. Well worth the investment and time.
As always, the production values of these on-line classes are very high.
Worth It! review by Kristin Quarton on 9/29/2018
I patiently waited for the second video to be released. I was not disappointed! Paul continues in part two to show you his techniques.
I am so happy that it was broken into three videos as there is a lot to this and well worth it when you see the end results.
Wow! Learned soooooooo much new techniques review by Linda Banks on 9/27/2018
Been doing glass for over 30 years and learned some techniques, so simple but so important to eliminate bubbles in layers. So simple but oh so important. And "Less is more!!"
Great priceGrea! review by terri on 9/26/2018
Highly recommend Paul's classes in this series!
This video was so useful to me in my art practise review by Elisabeth Miller on 9/26/2018
A smooth transition from Part 1 to Part 2 with just the right amount of referring back to Part 1. The split seemed natural and I learned so much about the paint and the technique that I have used in other projects.
Excellent review by Albert on 9/26/2018
After purchasing the first video, it was a given that I would want more information and purchase the next. This video took the information a bit further and gave the details of working with thick layers of glass. Again, all the information you needed to be successful was given to you and presented in a manner that you could understand. I had a question about spectrum glass power and the ability to find it, so I emailed Paul directly. The spectrum products are slowly coming back on the market via Ocean but some of the products are still difficult to find. Paul returned my email promptly, confirming that he indeed is using Spectrum and suggested a distributor where I could possibly purchase clear powder from. A prompt and friendly response with helpful information, shocked me! Usually it takes a few days and sometimes you don't get a response at all. Apparently, Paul is different. It only heighted my respect for him as a artist.
Great schedules! review by Kat on 9/22/2018
It was hard to wait for the second part in this series but the wait waas worth it! This series has allowed me to create some of my best work ever! Thank you!
Awesome video review by Melissa Coates on 9/22/2018
Paul is an outstanding teacher and I learned so much about working with enamels and glass to create beautiful scenic creations. I ended up purchasing all of his online classes. I am grateful that he decided to do an online class for people who cannot be there in person.
Worth the wait for Part Two review by Karyn Vine on 9/21/2018
After viewing Part One of Paul Messink’s three part series, I was eager to purchase Part Two. When it was released for purchase it was well worth the wait. The follow-up info in Part Two was again well presented, nicely paced and photographed beautifully. Much more project-specific information is covered in Part Two. Having watched both of the first two videos, I felt much more confident to start on my own project. I love being able to go back and watch them again and again as needed. Thanks to all involved in making this video!
Inspirational review by Sheena Wadlinger on 9/20/2018
This video was even better than the first. Paul builds on his first video and gives lots of tips for those who want to continue exploring painting and composition. He inspires me to do more with glass painting.
Loved, Loved, Loved it!!! review by Tyrone Powell on 9/20/2018
And I thought it could not be better than part-1!!! It really was!!! Paul continued his journey!!! Excellent!!! I thought I could not wait until part-3!!!
So beautiful review by Karen Melody Shatar on 9/19/2018
This video really took the tools from the first one and soared high above the basics. The information Paul shared goes way above most videos as he took great care and effort to anticipate any questions one might have in creating this kind of multi-layered piece. It's great to have the video to refer back to over and over again as the principles are applied in one's own work. Great opportunity for those who want to explore painting and composition.
Valuable video review by SANDY TALEN on 9/19/2018
Wonderful teaching and tips to make anyone a success!
More great information! review by Jackie on 9/19/2018
The great information in this video has given me the confidence to try enamels using different techniques than I've attempted previously and I love the results!
Not disappointed review by Yvonne Harrison on 9/19/2018
Waited a long time for this and was not disappointed. Good follow on video from the first. Worth every penny!
