Powder printing allows artists to produce archival images on glass with a wide range of colors, textures, and layers of transparency. Practitioners of this process include Stacy Lynn Smith, Catharine Newell, and Kathryn Wightman. Students in classes at Bullseye's Resource Centers have also made impressive work using this method. We've developed this lesson based on Stacy Lynn Smith's approach to powder printing. You will learn: • Specific tools and materials needed for this method • How to select appropriate imagery • What kinds of powders to work with • How to set up the image for printing • How to print the image • Considerations for firing it We'll also cover how to clean up when you're done and discuss some variations on the technique.
