It is so generous of you to take so much time to explain things so clearly. This workshop is way above and beyond what I expected – and the course fee is really very, very reasonable, considering all that we are getting in return. I am very grateful for the opportunity to be part of this wonderful learning experience. You are a superb teacher and artist. -Mano Venkatraman

Glass Etching 2

Now you can! Learn the basics of how to safely antique and distress mirror surfaces AND etch decorative patterns into mirror or glass with the FREE 5-part introductory video series above. Learn how to create elegant antique mirror and etched glass safely and easily without using highly toxic chemicals! The Antique Mirror and Glass Transforming products that we share and sell are designed to be easy enough for even beginners to achieve professional results.

Antique mirror finishes add light and life to rooms that reflect design styles ranging from industrial modern to vintage romance, from European country to bohemian rustic. Authentic antiqued and distressed mirror is the result of time-and the naturally occurring patina it creates on a silvered mirror surface. Unfortunately, true antiqued mirror is expensive and hard to come by.

The basic techniques and information in the FREE INTRO VIDEO SERIES ABOVE are designed to empower you to easily replicate the antique mirror and glass etching finishes that are so desirable for today’s decorating styles. Incredibly though, they are just the beginning of an exclusive video series I’ve created outlining amazing effects for transforming ordinary mirror and glass into remarkable custom art: Antique Mirror and Glass Virtual Workshop

There is so much more that you can do and the artistic applications for mirror and glass are endless!

This workshop is way above and beyond what I expected – and the course fee is really very, very reasonable, considering all that we are getting in return. I am very grateful for the opportunity to be part of this wonderful learning experience. You are a superb teacher and artist. -Mano Venkatraman
