This lesson teaches Stacy Lynn Smith's approach to powder printing—everything from preferred tools to process steos to cleaning up.

Powder Printing L059

Powder printing allows artists to produce archival images on glass with a range of colors, textures, and layers of transparency. This lesson is based on Stacy Lynn Smith's approach to powder printing.

This lesson covers the unique visual properties of Opaline sheet glass, the science behind its color, and its effects when layered with other colored glass.

Expanding the Color Palette: Opaline Overlays L057

Opaline sheet glass has great potential to expand the color palette in kilnforming because it has the ability to create new colors with distinct properties. Learn more about using Opaline in this lesson.

This lesson covers how to navigate design choices when working with thicker part sheets and how to minimize bubbles when working with bumpy part sheets.

Designing with Part Sheets, Part 2 L054

What should you expect when the part sheet is thicker than 3mm or if the surface is bumpy and irregular? Learn how to navigate these design choices in this lesson.

In this project-based lesson, we'll use 2mm stringer and 3mm sheet glass to make a basic plate with a line-based design and abundant color options.

Inline Plate Project L050

In this project-based lesson, we’ll make a basic plate with a line-based design. Using 2mm stringer and 3mm sheet glass,
