Day 2 & 3

Impressive Images on Glass

Adding designs to the surface of your glass is easy with the Stamping on Glass and Fossil Vitra techniques. During this workshop students will learn how to apply graphic images onto glass using frit, powdered enamels, Stamping Medium and rubber stamps.  This class will cover the proper techniques for mixing enamels, transferring the enamel onto the rubber stamp and then from the stamp onto the glass.  Students will create multiple stamped pieces that will be fired and incorporated into their class project and/or future projects.  Information on using low and high fire enamels and firing schedules will be discussed in class.  Whether used in jewelry, mosaic pieces, stained glass or large fused pieces, Stamping on Glass will add a unique beauty to your projects.  The Fossil Vitra technique will also be covered in this class.  This technique leaves (no pun intended) beautiful fossil like images on your glass.  There are definite tips and tricks that will make you successful with this technique.  Bullseye Glass will be used in class.  Each member of the class will create a 12" x 12" mosaic bowl and one 6" x 12" Fossil Vitra piece that will be full fused for them. 

Students need to bring: Glass cutter, safety glasses, running pliers, miscellaneous other favorite hand tools, apron and a NIOSH 95 approved particulate mask (for use with powdered enamels and micas).  Vogmasks will be available for purchased in class if needed.
