In this fun and creative online course Anne Marie Price walks students through the steps in creating a beautiful stained glass mosaic on a stone. She starts the course by explaining what type of stone to use, and where find them. (They are more accessible than one might think.) Students are then guided through the process of how to create a design on this 3-D object. She will also describe how to get the best results with different textured stones. Next, students are taught how to cut stained glass and understand the best ways to place it on the stone. She also shares her tips and techniques for the most effective adhesive for this type of project. These stones can be created for exterior or interior display. Lastly, Anne Marie shows you her special technique for creating clean lines when grouting her mosaics on stone.
This course is full of information taught in an easy to follow pace, and allows the student to stop and start when necessary. Each section can be completed at your preferred pace before moving on. Included in this course is a PDF printable list of all the resources, tools, and materials necessary to complete the project.
Most important is to enjoy creating mosaic art and HAVE FUN!
I do not remember a moment in my life when I was not creating art but I do remember the moment I decided I wanted to become a mosaic artist and create mosaic art. It is in this process especially, that I find peace, purpose, and a way to say something...with many little pieces. I constantly try to find a balance between the simple and the complex in my work. The subject simple...the movement within that subject.. complex. This is what drives me to keep creating. This challenge to create what I see all around me, in nature, humanity, life and the ironic.
"Anne Marie, I love your class and it is helping me so much. On my first day of grouting I was really having trouble. Having admired your work, I bought your course, watched every video and then tried again. Learning to grout the edges with your technique was a game changer. Yesterday, I tried again and successfully grouted the piece with more ease and less mess. My architect husband (who works with bathroom and kitchen tilers) suggested that since I didn't have any toothpicks on hand, I try cutting up an old credit card, as that's what his tiling guys use. The curved corner of the credit card was great and I was able to make multiple little scrapers of different sizes to get into small spaces and larger for larger spaces. Next time I am in the studio, I'll be doing the part you are showing in this video, refining the edges. I am so grateful that you shared your knowledge here. I look forward to doing some stones when I get my current piece out of the way". Carol B.
