Sandblasting and Airbrushing with Mica and Enamels
Saturday,August 5 to Sunday, August 6, 2017
Instructor: Brad Walker
Take the frustration out of working with micas and enamels! In this workshop we'll use both the airbrush and the sandblaster to create finished pieces with enamel and mica. Best of all, the technique can be used on any glass, from Bullseye to Spectrum to regular window glass.
We'll learn how to prepare both micas and enamels for airbrushing, how to use the airbrush, how to create and use resists, basic sandblasting, firing, and finishing. Students will make several pieces and will leave with a basic understanding of the airbrush, the sandblaster, mica, and enamels.
Familiarity with glass cutting and with basic fusing and slumping techniques is recommended, but not essential. All materials will be provided.
