    I love love love this video! There are so many possibilities and ways in which the techniques explained can be used and expanded. I also love Tanya's teaching style- clear, precise, understandable- and her sense of humor. Tanya's enthusiasm is contagious. Her passion for glass and for helping us take our work to the next level is most inspiring and encouraging. I can always depend on Tanya's firing schedules which she so carefully researches and so generously shares with us. And as she teaches she includes useful tips and hints. Tanya adds a personal touch to both her business and her teaching. Tanya really wants each of us to succeed. I'm most appreciative. Thank you, Tanya.

    This technique makes beautiful and unique glass, that can be slumped or draped into very impressive pieces. Tanya is a great teacher. She explains everything so clearly, and she spends so much time developing and experimenting with the techniques that she knows what firing schedules to use, exactly which products will give great results, and includes all the information you will need to be successful on your first try. I love that no two pieces made with this technique will ever be the same. Yet another technique added to my arsenal. I highly recommend this lesson.

    I love her idea of creating inexpensive bowls that look unique. I now can create bowls that are completely different that will not take me a lot of time to create. All the shows that I have been to I have not seen anything like this. These techniques will give me a new opportunity to make money at my shows.

    For the past year that I have been doing fused glass, Tanya was the only person that I could enjoy learning from online. This video was very informative and creative. I have sold many of the dishes I made using this technique. If I lived in Florida, I would attend many of Tanya's workshops but unfortunately live in Alaska.

    Thank you, Tanya, for sharing all of your many years of wisdom and I wish you all the best in life.

    This video is an excellent way to make memorable art for parents and grandparents while getting your children involved in you favorite hobby, Fused Glass making! Children of all ages, including adults, can make Ink Blot Art that is then fused between two sheets of glass. This art can be hung on the wall or slumped into a bowl or plate and proudly displayed on a coffee table, night stand, kitchen counter or bathroom vanity. Using this technique, Glassline paints on Firepaper, you can also capture handprints, footprints or any painting within glass to be celebrated for years to come. Many Ink Blot art sheet can be created at one time (during a birthday party, holiday or family reunion for example) and stored in draws to be used later in glasswork. Paintings can also be cut into shapes that are then used to create designs. Once you learn the technique, the possibilities are endless. This is possible the most particle technique that Tanya has ever taught.
