Learn to Choose a Strong Color Palette

The class has an in-depth lesson on choosing your color palette. It explains how to examine a mosaic design to better approach what some peoples see as an intimidating part of mosaics, something that can sometimes keep folks from getting started. This is just one of the many supplementary color diagrams from that lesson. Kasia likes to uses imagery to help students understand the concepts she uses in her own mosaic art. So there are lots of color swatches in this lesson that don't just address the glass but the grout as well. 

Use Hand Tools to Precisely Cut Glass for Mosaics

The class includes tutorials, demos and practice exercises for how to work each of the 4 basic hand tools Kasia uses to create all of the fun glass shapes in her mosaic art. Additionally, Kasia demonstrates how to use the 4 different types of glass scoring tools popular among mosaic artists.

You only actually need two of the basic tools for precision glass cutting: a glass scoring tool and running pliers thought the flathead tile nipper is very handy in shaping small circles as well as smoothing out any glass edges that were not cut as well as you'd like it to be but you'd like to salvage them.


Learn Precision Glass Cutting For Mosaics

Kasia designed the class project with teaching precision glass cutting in mind. She demonstrates how to create stencils, how to properly position and trace the shapes onto glass for optimal success in scoring and breaking. She includes not just do's but also don'ts. Students get to see the techniques used practically and can follow along with their own project. 

 

Kasia applies the same glass cutting theories to her non-template based mosaics. But the class project allows for learning through repetition which is ideal for learning any new skill and can be further applied outside of this class to any future project.

Arrange and Fit Glass Into a Mosaic Composition

The students work on top of the provided template. Kasia demonstrates arranging the glass, giving tips on how to get the best results. There is more to consider than one may realize. The taping method also know as the front-mounting technique will is covered in detail - this is a favorite technique with the students as it allows for more fluid work, there is no need to stop to glue one piece at a time and to interrupt the creative process. 

 

The Front Mounting Technique For Glass Mosaics

Many beginners glue their mosaic projects one piece at a time. This can be very tedious, messy and interruptible to the creative process. The front mounting technique for stained glass mosaics, more commonly known as the tape method, makes the whole mosaic process much more enjoyable and less time consuming. You get to work on your mosaic without the pressure of gluing as you work. This technique also allows you to change your mind and to edit your project as you make progress.
