In powder printing, images are produced by pressing dry glass powder through a prepared silkscreen. Prints can then be full-fused for smooth surfaces or tack-fused for textured surfaces that resemble relief printing or sandblasting. Your images can also be printed directly onto a kiln shelf to produce wafer-thin work that can stand alone or be attached to a substrate.
You'll learn image preparation, design possibilities and firing options through various hands-on projects, demonstrations, and examples. (This class is based on a printing technique developed by artist Stacy Lynn Smith.)
What past students are saying:
- "The class was an amazing combination of technical information, hands-on practice, and creative inspiration."
- "Exactly what I was looking for: how to create and transfer my photographic images to glass through a non-contact silk screening process."
- "Fantastic class! Very informative, inspirational, interesting, and fun."
All experience levels welcome. Basic skills with computers and digital image editing will be helpful.
