Adding designs to the surface of your glass is easy with the Stamping on Glass technique. During this workshop students will learn how to apply graphic images onto glass using 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. To further embellish the pieces, students will learn how to apply mica powder over the stamped images. Students will create multiple stamped pieces (2″x6″ and 2”x4” approximately) that will be fired and can be incorporated into their 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. COE 96 will be used in class. In addition to the stamped pieces each member of the class will create a small stamped dish that will be full fused and slumped for them.
Students need to bring: Glass cutter, safety glasses, running pliers, miscellaneous other favorite hand tools, apron and a NIOSH approved particulate mask (for use with powdered enamels and micas). Masks will be available for purchase in class if needed for $5.
