MONO PRINTING & DECOUPAGE ON GLASS

Join Susan as she leads you on a happy journey while you learn to mono print beautiful one-of-a-kind papers and then decoupage them to simple pieces of glass that then become stunning works of art!

The beauty is that it requires NO artistic experience or special skills. There is no right or wrong way to paint your papers. It is all about experimenting and enjoying the process. Susan will guide you on mixing paint colors, printing and using tools that add to interest to your papers.

Then you'll learn the ins and outs of the interesting process of decoupage on glass. You will be amazed how putting the papers you created under glass makes them look even more impressive.

The recent class at South Main Creative was exceptional!
