  1. Thank you so much, Milly, for your suggestions and help on completing my stained glass plating project. You are truly a glass genius! I acquired so much knowledge from your plating course and would recommend it to anyone who is desiring to take their stained glass talents to another level. You can never learn too much!

  2. I have been following Milliy’s site for the past couple of years and have found the information she provides so valuable! I have worked with stained glass for well over 40 years and am so glad to have Milly’s site as a refresher. I recently took her plating class and found it to be so amazing. She is such a great teacher – Her classes are filled with nuggets of valuable knowledge that I use every day! She is a very encouraging instructor that cares about the success of her students. Thank you Milly!!

    • Over 40 years of stained glass and still learning new-to-you things Valerie, that’s what I love to hear πŸ™‚ I’m so happy that the Plating class added valuable knowledge to your already large bank of skills!
      Thank you for your wonderful review, I appreciate it.

  3. As with ALL of Milly’s classes, Plating Magic is great! She is a natural teacher, breaking things down step by step, with a few tips here and there that apply to all other glass work. I learned how to do glass with her beginners class two years ago and keep growing with each new class she offers. Plating is easy – if you take heed to apply Milly’s caveats and techniques – and the outcomes can be magical. It opens up palates and perspectives that would be impossible to achieve without layering the glass. A whole new dimension with a brilliant teacher. Thanks Milly for the opportunity to reach a new level!

    • ‘Learning about glass’ and it’s many changing qualities was one of the aims I had in making the Plating Magic course Darlene, so I’m very happy indeed to read that it helped you in this area πŸ™‚
      Thanks for taking the time to comment on the course, I appreciate it.

  5. What a wonderful class! Fun and easy to follow instruction. Milly Frances is a great teacher! Really sharpened my glass choosing skills and picking complimentary glasses. It has opened a whole new world of glass possibilities. Highly recommend this course.

    • ‘Sharpening your glass choosing skills’ is what I want to hear Laura, thank you for the lovely review. Once you feel more confident with that then, as you say, your glass world gets bigger and bigger and more creative with each panel πŸ™‚

  6. Hi Milly,
    I did enjoy learning about plating and will consider using it in future projects. Part of my challenge is access to glass supply, as in variety. We live on a small island in the Salish sea off Victoria BC.

    A question; would you ever consider plating only parts of a panel rather than the whole thing ?

    Also did you post a link about copper overlays?

    Thanks for all your inspiration! ( seaglasssstudio.ca. )

    Reply
    • I’m glad you were inspired Dana. Yes, I absolutely would plate only part of a panel. It’s called ‘Spot Plating’ and there’s a whole lesson on it in Module 6 Step 1.
      I understand about the glass selection but always find with plating that you can adapt the glass that you have (for example by using the ‘no-kit’ sandblasting technique shown in the class).
      Yes, copper foil overlays are covered in the course – Module 4 Step 1. It’s how the smaller cacti are made.
      Thanks for your review and I’m happy to hear that you’ll be using this plating technique again πŸ™‚

  7. Hello everyone,
    I took this course because I was curious to know. I state that my hobby is glass for several years and I was already applying glass to glass, but it was another thing. I must admit that a world has opened up to me with this technique very well explained by Milly. the course is complete with everything down to the smallest detail. Apart from the curiosity, it made me decide to attend it, the fact that I had all the time to follow it and look at it , when and how I wanted . Thanks again and again Milly and compliment for how you also succeed to make all of us look at a window as if it was a painting

    Reply
    • You saying I’ve made you look at windows as if they were paintings is fantastic for me to hear Elliana Anita. As a teacher I try to open up ways of seeing differently. Your comment has made me feel like I’ve succeeded with Plating Magic.
      I’m also pleased that you found the course well constructed and comprehensive.
      Thank you so much for taking the time to review it πŸ™‚

  8. At the very, very, very least, out of sheer necessity, my cutting skills have been sharpened like never before – nice bonus! At the best, this wonderful course has unleashed my glass art imagination, and allowed it to explore in a whole new direction, while providing me with a clear step-by-step roadmap to follow.

    • Aw, that’s great to hear Kristina, I love the phrase ‘glass art imagination’ and I’m very happy it’s been unleashed!

  9. Really enjoyed your very clear and informative videos. Templates brilliant and I learnt a lot along the way. Excellent course and very good value for my net. Now know a lot more about depth, and improving perspective, amongst other things. Thank you Millie.

    • How to create depth and perspective are really important Pat so I’m happy happy happy that the course has helped you along the way with that πŸ™‚

  10. Loved it and am hooked. My appreciation for what can be done with shading, color and texture has grown tremendously. I feel as if I was transformed from living in a 2D world to a 3D one! So excited,I started my next plated piece before I finished the course. Course materials are easy/handy to look back on for reference. Without exaggerating ,it now takes me 3 times longer to get in and out of my glass supply shop. By layering glass your color/texture/opacity palate becomes virtually limitless. The teacher by the way is excellent. Organized, enthusiastic, humorous and available for questions. Chapeau Milly! The class mates also make this a wonderful experience. Seeing others work was interesting, educational and inspiring! I highly recommend this course. Especially if you are feeling stagnant with your craft or in need of “something new.”

    • I don’t know where to start with how happy your review makes me Tim πŸ™‚ All the things I was hoping for this course seem to have hit the mark; that sense of exploratory excitement being top of the pile.
      I laughed when I read that you take a while choosing glass now! So much potential. I’m confident you’re going to exploit it to the full and look forward to seeing the results πŸ™‚

  11. I am SO glad I did not pass on this class! Milly – you are a great teacher! I have not had a chance to put the plating into practice and make the cactus panel yet, as I have a few commissioned pieces I’m currently working on. BUT you were already able to help me better my soldering techniques! I am now able to solder quickly and efficiently, and in half the time that I was! Thank you for that!!! I cannot WAIT to make the cactus panel! Also – thank you for showing mistakes and fixes! That is always beneficial, too!

    Reply
    • Wow, that’s an unexpected benefit Tana – improving and speeding up your soldering. I’m very happy to hear this. Yes, less said about my mistakes the better LOL!
      I look forward to seeing how you get on with the panel. Thank you for your review, much appreciated.

  12. The Plating Course has expanded my possibilities of creativity. After years of multiple classes and teachers I’m so glad I decided to take this course . It has helped me to grow . Milly is an excellent teacher who gives valuable personal feedback. You also gain access to a group of stained glass makers who are very supportive. After showing my finished plated panel to some of my teachers and SG friends they were inspired by this technique too. I could say so much more but doing is a better way to explain and learn.

    • That’s interesting to know Deborah, that your ‘in person’ teachers and peers were inspired too. Plating really does add something new to stained glass and in doing so captures the imagination.
      Thanks for your lovely comments on my teaching and for your review πŸ™‚

  13. This course was incredible. It was easy to follow, full of useful practical information and really fun! I learned how to plate a panel, and now I understand how layering color can completely change the feel of a piece. For example, just by layering a blue sky with streaky white glass, the mood of the scene changes from bright sunny day, to stormy brooding sky. So cool. My favorite part was being able to add depth to a landscape just by layering. It makes it more realistic.
    I also learned how to paint on glass and how to do an easy sandblasting effect to glass. I can’t wait to try some of these techniques on my next project.

      Just what I love to hear as a teacher πŸ™‚

  14. I didn’t know anything about plating before I took Milly’s Class. She explained it all in detail that was easy to follow and execute. I like the ability to go at my own pace, viewing videos, then collecting supplies and choosing glass, then coming back to videos when my schedule allowed. The project was small enough to try out the plating but big enough to actually see how it works. I would recommend this class to others who want to challenge themselves to try something new.

    • I’m happy to hear that the explanations were clear and easy to follow Lynne, music to my teacher’s ears πŸ™‚ I look forward to seeing how you’ll be using these new techniques in your stained glass from now on in.
      Thanks for the review, much appreciated.

  15. When I saw that the Plating Magic class was offered, I was excited and eager to take it as I already had a glass piece in mind that I knew would be much enhanced by this technique. Milly does a wonderful job of teaching the steps – both what to do and what not to do. I watched all of the videos and downloaded her helpful lists of materials and patterns, and although I have not yet started my piece because I am working on another project, I will be able to return to her instructions and videos for refreshers for each step. I am not a beginner but not very skilled either, and I learned so much from this class about Plating and also general stained glass technique. Milly is a wonderful teacher, and I recommend this class wholeheartedly.

    • I’m glad you found the printable handouts useful Janice, that’s good to know. Yes, you can watch and re-watch to your hearts’ content to get those enhancements that you were wanting for your project… I hope you’ll send me a photo when it’s done πŸ™‚
      Thanks for reviewing the course.

  17. This course is simple enough to succeed in, and challenging enough to stretch you. Milly teaches not only about sandwiching layers, but includes direction on texture and shading and going a step beyond, into β€˜THE NEXT DIMENSION.’ She also eats some humble pie and gave a needed lesson on undoing mistakes!

    • I’ve grown to LOVE Humble Pie Nita, it’s one of my favourite recipes LOL! What a lovely phrase for me to hear; ‘simple to do, yet challenging enough to stretch you’. That’s exactly what teacher-me wants for my courses so I’m very glad you found it to be so.
      Thanks for your comments on the course, much appreciated.

  18. The plating course by Ms Milly is an eye opener for anyone that loves working with glass. The added depth and colors created using this technique is magical. I learned so many new techniques in this class….choosing glass & cutting foil overlays to create shadows, distance & bring the vision in my mind into the panel. I enjoyed the process so much I have completed a second pelican panel using Plating!

    • You’re storming ahead Susan! I’m so happy the course added to your glassy repertoire; that’s exactly what I was hoping would happen for students πŸ™‚

  19. This course opened up an entire new realm of stained glass to me. Now when I look at a design or a picture I want to replicate I start thinking in layers and combinations of glass to achieve a particular effect. Whereas before I felt sometimes limited by the glass I might have available I now know how to combine glass in two or even three levels if needed. This class is a perfect compliment to the design course as one teaches you how to design those feelings of distance and depth and the other how to turn that design into reality through your glass choices and combinations. Bravo Milly. You continue to challenge us to take this art form to new levels!

    • I love to think that you are now looking at designs differently, with special effects in mind that you can now achieve with plating.
      It’s a great review for me to read Maggie, thanks for taking the time to add it.
