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. Along the way, you’ll 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
Finally, we’ll conclude by showing how to clean up when you’re done and discussing some variations on the technique.
