Our No Days Road Show was a full day of mosaics, fusing and jewelry. The
first class was jam packed with folks making micro mosaic jewelry using
No Days Groutless Mosaic Adhesive, bezel pendants, resin, frit,
millefiori, mica and itty bitty bits of stained glass.

After making small mosaics, we moved on to bigger projects, picture frames. There is always such a wide array of colors and design in these classes. Patterns start to emerge after students pick out favorite colors or interesting bits of glass…
|Groutless Mosaic Picture Frames Class|
After the Groutless Mosaic Picture Frames, we continued with fusing classes making layered dichroic tiles for jewelry and then fused glass mosaics. At the end of the day, the kiln was loaded with projects. Below you can see the dichroic glass tiles along the top row, four of the No Days ThinFuse mosaics and on the bottom left is my frit sample plate. I demonstrated “painting” with frits using No Days Liquid Fusing Adhesive to design more freeform pieces without cutting glass.
|A day’s worth of classes packed in the kiln!|
Needless to say, we all had a great time! Accents in Glass has a comfortable yet cozy studio space. I enjoyed getting to know all the students and hope to make it back for another round of classes.
|Feeling inspired! Can’t wait to see what Leslie makes now!|
