Art journaling meets glass review by Bernadette on 1/13/2019
I love to art journal and have tried several methods for translating my paper art to glass, some methods were successful and some not so much. I never thought about using an air gun. The results are amazing and there is still so much to explore. Love this course!
Wow a ton of info review by Terri Theresa Fiertner on 1/9/2019
What can I say, there is a ton of info on this video. So many techniques its like having a week long class in one video. I hadn't realized how much till I sat down and watched it. I will be watching it a few times and Im sure each time Ill pick up something new each time. If your interest lies in this style than its a definite video to have in your collection.
Well Worth the Price review by Linda Dean on 1/9/2019
The video was exactly what I was looking for. A straightforward simple way to screen print images. Gail is clear in your directions and the video shows what she is talking about. I especially liked the Photoshop lesson. Clear directions while explaining why it needs to be done.
Fabulous Class review by Julie Courville on 1/8/2019
I loved this class. Gail does an amazing job of explaining each technique in detail. I like being able to review the sections one at a time. The supply list is detailed and the handouts are helpful. Thanks Gail!
Such a valuable tool to have in your library review by Liz Alberg on 10/22/2018
Gail shares so much of her artistic talents in this hands on video. So nicw to be able to go back at anytime and review various techniques.
AAE Glass shows so much professionalism in the production of this educational video and others I have piurchased.
Such a great value.
Thank you Gail, look forward to another video in the future.
Wonderful, informative, so many different techniques review by Temple Pennison on 10/22/2018
This is an excellent video. Hands on techniques that are so awesome. Gail walks you through so many interesting ideas. Silk screening, making your own screens, etc. and she tells you where to get all of the items she demonstrates. It sets your creative thinking on fire. The possibilities are endless with the techniques in this video.
Great Overview of Making Your Own Images on Glass review by Bridget on 10/8/2018
This is a great overview of making your own images on glass. I have to qualify my review by stating that I have previously taken a class with Gail on this subject. I found it to be a great refresher. The most valuable tool for me from the video was the process of preparing your pictures using Photoshop and additional information that she added on the facebook page. Image prep for me is the hardest part.
I have yet to try the resist method, but will in the near future.
Overall the video was good, but a little light on examples. But, being a video I can just go back and rewatch those given, so I don't think it is a big deal. And supplemental info on the FB page does make up for this.
Awesome review by Barbara on 9/29/2018
Gail is awesome she was very good in detail of her technique
Love this technique review by Barbara on 9/29/2018
This video is awesome teaching I would buy it again
Multiple methods for achieving a result review by Shannon Mabry on 9/29/2018
As mentioned in other reviews, the fact that she teaches a low tech and a high tech method for achieving a result is great as we don't all have the same equipment. The fact that she spends the time to cover how to turn you own work or photos into silk screen ready art is great as that's what I've always wanted to do but constantly stumbled in the past to the point of giving up. The fact that I can watch and pause the video as I go through the conversion steps taught again and again is key.
As always, production values are very high on the Education Center videos.
Awesome review by JUDY Phillips on 9/26/2018
Loved her approach on teaching two ways of doing her process, the high tech way and low tech way. Very detail information on photoshop
wonderful review by Hengameh on 9/26/2018
As an enamel artist I learned and enjoyed watching this video.
Express yourself to the MAX in your art!! review by Amanda Buzek on 9/23/2018
This is a must have for anyone looking to personalize their art and make it stand out from all of the rest. Gail is a wonderful teacher and I feel that I have acquired a technique that will take my art to the next level!
Wow! review by DIANNE VdC on 9/20/2018
The convenience of watching this video at home and being able to review it over and over again has me addicted. There are so many techniques covered in this video. I’ll have to try them all. Who knew stencils could be so exciting?
OMG!!! What Gail does with Glass is unbelievable!!! review by Tyrone Powell on 9/20/2018
AWESOME!!! AWESOME!!! And AWESOME!!! Three thumbs up for this one!!! Seeing the seven techniques Gail demonstrated in this video made me want to do it all!!! A must have in your collection!!!
Eye Opening Techniques review by Carole Bowen on 9/19/2018
I took this class in person with Gail and was very excited to see that AAE was offering this class on video. It was the perfect review for me and now I can watch it whenever I want. I really enjoy Gail’s style of teaching and the little extras she gives you to get your creative juices moving. This opened a whole new avenue for me.
Valuable instruction review by SANDY TALEN on 9/19/2018

Wonderful Video review by SANDY TALEN on 9/19/2018
Gail Stouffer gives so much information and purchasing advice that I am amazed. Great at twice the price!!
Gail's New Video is Great! review by John and Donna Kober on 9/19/2018
The many topics are covered in detail, without education overload. Gail demonstrates everything you need to know in a straightforward manner. I plan to refer to the video and handout, before starting any new projects in any of these techniques. I am excited to try the embossing stamp and pen (that's new to me). I also like the recipe for screenprinting. Thats new to me too, and I can't wait to try it. I have to try Gail's method of powder printing as well. One of the best values on this video is the section on how to use Photoshop to prepare photographs for screenprinting. No video or book that I know of on screen printing offers that information.
All in all, the value you are getting for the price of this video is awesome.
Excelent review by Caren on 9/19/2018
Every thing I expected and more. Wonderful course. Wanted to take this course but being in NZ made it difficult. Now I have it at my finger tips. Thank you so much
Printing techniques to enjoy review by Yvonne Harrison on 9/19/2018
Absolutely loved this video, lots of different techniques to learn and throughly explained. Photoshop tutorial very indepth and extremely useful. Only thing that could improve it is if individual projects were given.To practice on but definitely worth every penny. Not disappointed. Would thoroughly recommend.
So much usable information and for such a small price! review by Traci Marshall on 9/19/2018
This is my favorite video that I have purchased to date. The Image preparation for screen printing tutorial was worth the entire purchase price on its own, I had been trying to create an image of my late dog (in Photoshop) so I could screen print his image on glass. I had just about given up, Gail's method was easy to understand and better yet, it worked. I was able to create an image that I am completely happy with. I can't wait to play with this technique some more. After watching the airbrush section, of course I had to try airbrushing and It is so much fun. This is going to open another avenue of creativity for my work. She also covers making your own decals and using Ez screens for glass powders and enamels. She also included a section on choosing the correct font for your project. Bottom line is, the huge amount of information in this video will keep you busy trying techniques for a good while.
Excellent Class! review by Jennifer Stockman on 9/19/2018
WOW! What a great class! I have been wanting to know more about silk screening and using templates on designs as well as an air gun and this class explains it all!
I love that you can go back to individual chapters when you are ready to try what you have learned and need to review it before you do it!
I have TONS of ideas from this class! WORTH IT!
