Sparkle & Shine Wine Glass Painting
Presented by Lauren Cernek
Glass Sip & Paint
Glass sip and paint evolved through a simple conversation with friends over one year ago. As I have always enjoyed many different areas in the art & craft world I found myself experimenting with painting on glass. It’s much different then painting on the traditional canvas as we know. The clear, crystal canvas gave me a flowing feeling of freedom and expression. It’s extremely relaxing and a wonderful experience to share with friends. Its all about the experience! During our workshop we paint a tall, full goblet wine glass. Since spring is here I decided we shall paint the beautiful, eclectic Sunflower! You will be guided through the entire creative process from beginning to end.
