Comments: To Kick Start Enthusiasm & Inspiration This book has excellent colour photographs of historic and modern glassware painting from teapots to champagne glasses to windows ; a comprehensive guide to materials and techniques - all accompanied by photographs. The step by step instructions for projects are easy to follow - again, photos all the way plus templates. The projects involve readily available items - bottles, jars, mirrors, glasses, small windows, photo frames, baubles, boxes, candlesticks. Simple to do and impressive when finished. I am always going back to this book.
