Each birthday party painter creates an image or a design on paper. Then the image or design is drawn on the front/back or sleeves of a new black or white T-shirt.
After the drawing is complete each painter creates their own ARTwear project by painting the T-shirts with acrylic paint with colours of their choosing.
The T-shirts should dry for 24 hours before washing in cold water at which time the ARTwear projects are ready to wear.
Turn your everyday staple white or black T-shirts, sneakers or dresses into a wearble work of art!
***A glass fusion birthday party is an art-making celebration for adults, teens and tweens! All participants must be age 7 and over to participate due to the nature of the art supplies and materials they will be working with. Younger guests may paint pottery or a canvas if desired.
At your party you will turn bits and stripes of specialty glass into beautiful, kiln fired one-of-a-kind glass artworks. We will show your group how to create sparkling glass artwork, cool ornaments and sun catchers, glittering glass jewelry. Glass fusion is a unique art form and the results are truly amazing.
Your party includes:
-The services of an instructor who will assist with designs and ideas and all of the glass and other art supplies and materials that you will require to create your artwork.
*Price of party starts as low as $28.00 per guest for a 4” clear glass base and price will vary depending on the glass base size and type chosen. Slumping techniques (8" and 10" bases only) allow the creation of larger, functional pieces like dishes, bowls and plates. Producing functional pieces generally requires 2 or more separate firings, one to fuse the glass and a second firing to slump the glass into shape. There is no additional fee for slumping.
A minimum of 8 participants /maximum of 16.
What is Glass Fusion Art?
Fused glass is glass that has been fired (heat processed) in a kiln at a range of high temperatures from 593 degrees C (1099 degrees F) to 816 degrees C (1501 degrees F). There are three main distinctions for temperature application and the resulting effect on glass.
Firing in the lower ranges of these temperatures 593-677 degrees C (1099-1251 degrees F) is called “slumping”. Firing in the middle ranges of these temperatures 677-732 degrees C (1251-1350 degrees F) is considered to be a “tack fusing”. Firing the glass at the higher spectrum of this range 732-816 degrees C (1350-1501 degrees F) is considered to be a “full fuse”. All of these techniques can be applied to one glass work in separate kiln firings to add depth, relief and shape to the piece. At COF various kiln firing techniques are generally used to create glass artworks. You design it, we fire to fuse, we slump to shape you enjoy your piece!
