Association of Stained Glass Lamp Artists
The Association of Stained Glass Lamp Artists is a non-profit organization registered in the state of Washington. Its purpose is to perpetuate, improve, and promote the art and craft of stained glass lamp construction. The Association was born in the mind of Carol Conti. As a teacher of the craft of stained glass, she discovered in her students a desire to go beyond glass crafting to actual "creating" using the medium of glass. She nurtured this desire, and in the process found that the creative intuitions of her compatriots blossomed into masterworks through the sharing and support that is inevitable when like-minded people form an 'association'. With the help and encouragement of good friends, this dream was pursued and The Association of Stained Glass Lamp Artists was formed. The first meeting, in 1991, was attended by 30 lamp artists from Washington State. As of 2012, the ASGLA includes more than 800 member artists from twenty-seven countries and forty-eight states.
I loved it and was trying to replace it after a fire and water damage to my apartment.
Unfortunately, I had a difficult time locating it anywhere on internet and it wasn't at Walmart anymore. Hence, I OVER purchased the "Carolina Pad U create" 22x 28 in. that was flimsy and two of them cracked into pieces in the car during winter.--Ouch
The "Wipe-on Wipe Off" Carolina Pad is much much better: a nice size, easy to attach to the wall and likewise easy to remove with simple tape.
I apply these paints in small plastic bottles and add a metal tip to outline and apply. The only thing I dislike is you never know which color will change to a different color after baking. Mostly I use the Pebeo 150. I find they do not change color after baking. Another problem is they do not have it in white,first time I used what looked like white, it turned ivory and even looked more yellow than ivory. I just wish there were more art suppliers who carry it. Most of the time I order it.
I use welbond glue on my mosaics, glass to glass, and when I put water on it after it has been set and is clear, I have found that it will turn white again and come loose. I love the glue but found this not something I want to use for project that get wet like being outside etc. I found that a Silicone glue that is waterproof worked better for my projects.
