Exploring Glass Powders, Powderology Class

February 10, 2009


Upcoming class at the Las Vegas Glass Craft & Bead Expo: 

Explore the possibilities of personal expression with this underused form of glass in a hands on, fun, experimental atmosphere.  Working with small components, we’ll practice a variety of techniques unique to glass powders, including color blending & shading for ‘painting’, sgrafitto, combing & feathering, line work, resists, faux sandblasting, and how to pull out oversifted powder.  We’ll play with mica, Glass Glow ™, dichroic and irid glass, learning how they interact with and relate to powders.  Discover how to ‘correct’ a problem, after it’s been fired.  Design & color issues will be discussed and practiced.  You’ll take home a set of samples to remember the techniques allowing you to easily reproduce this work in your own studio.  

This class is almost sold out.
