Description:  

If you want to take the crackle technique to a whole new level, then this is your video! 

Why? The basic crackle technique provides beautiful textures but that is only half the story. Add a painterly colour palette of custom blended powders and design elements such as veining and replacement textures to propel the crackle technique from basic to cutting edge.

The video starts with a review of the basic crackle technique. From there you will learn how to achieve a painterly effect within the crackle texture by layering coloured powders, either as pure colours straight from the jar or as custom blended colours. To finish off the piece you will learn how to precisely add coloured veins and replacement textures. The final result is a crackle piece like never before!
The techniques for blending powders, veining, and replacement textures are not included in any of my e-books. I’ve always wanted to share this information and the opportunity to demonstrate it through a professional video is definitely the best approach. Seven PDF Firing schedules are included.  Come learn with me!
 
Cheers,
 
Bob

    I am just as impressed with Bob’s video as I was when at his studio. When I was at the studio, it was sometimes difficult for me to keep on track and catch up. I am so thankful that he and AAE got together and made this great video. I can stop and start as I need to! Thank you all. He is a wonderful teacher and a fine artist.

    I love that he did this! After reading just about all of his ebooks, the video brought it all together for me. Seeing it done makes so much more sense to me. I still will use the books as a quick reference, but this is my go to if I need to watch it being done. the nuances and new material make this a valuable video.

    I learn by doing and having this video to watch as I did each step was a huge help after reading all of his e-books. It helped clarify the water to powder ratio and made my work more successful.

    With so much information packaged into one instructional video, it is easy to see the value. This technique is versatile and easily incorporated into a wide variety of projects. Well taught and easy to follow instructions, the video flows smoothly from one step to the next.
    It is fun to learn a new process and to have new offerings at shows! Thanks so much for making this available.

    Having taken a class from Bob, I was very interested in how this would inform my art. I found the information well put together and it reminded me of a few things I had forgotten. Never again as I have this video to watch. Love it

    I was so excited to know AAE was making a video with Bob Leatherbarrow and I was not disappointed! Every glass artist should have this technique in their repertoire. The possibilities with this technique are endless and the supplies are minimal. I promise you will love this video!

    A real down to earth experience. Bob has refined his crackle technique and then he passionately shares in this video. A great system to have for a glass artist.

    His understanding of the process and the implementation of the procedures were excellent. Explained everything very well. The only thing I wish there was more printed instruction as to the procedure, layout, timing etc so as to review quickly.
