Color Line Screen Pastes are a great alternative to working with powdered enamels for screen printing on glass. Because they come pre-mixed into a medium, there is no need to mix powders. Just open the container, stir with a palette knife, and you're ready to mix colors or print.
In this lesson, we'll explore how to print on glass using using Color Line Screen Pastes. These are ready to print directly out of the container and do not require ventilation or a respirator.
Artist Dustin Sherron demonstrates his process for using Color Line Paints on glass. He says, "Layering Color Line Paints and powdered glass over multiple firings allows me to make paintings with both illusionistic and real depth."
In Part 2 of the lesson, you will learn how to work safely with enamels, print your image onto the glass, fire the glass, and clean up or recycle materials when finished.
In Part 1 of the lesson, you will learn how to choose a silkscreen and an image for this process and how to prepare the image and fix it to the screen in preparation for printing.
