Excellent instruction on Stained Glass Mosaics
Reviewer: Len Dushnicky (email@example.com) from Winnipeg, MB, Canada November 6, 1998 Shannon & Torlen have once again written an excellent book on stained glass instruction. They have produced an exceptional, easy to follow instruction manual with high quality photographs on Mosaics. Being a stained glass instructor, I recommend this book to all hobbyists and stained glass artists, as I do to my students. I look forward to the release of the authors third book on sandblasting, leaded glass and copper foil construction!!
