using mica powders on glass

several questions, if you please:
is size put on then powders applied?
or
is size mixed with the powders, then applied?
or do you use one-shot clear as the vehicle?

How do you gild over the back of the mica? Oil or water size????
Thanks! :P

Re: White Aciiiiiid

Not being at all familiar with acid- do you soak the glass exposing sections at a time to the "darkest" is done first and is in longest? :?:

Glorious glass

Bobbie Rackow sent these to me last night, and my photos don't come close to doing these justice- they are truly magnificent pieces! She's been going full speed ahead after taking the Studden-Webber course at Boise and there are lots of "firsts" in these... Well done, Kid![img

County Fair time

I found out in Pontiac just how lacking my brush skills were, so when I came home I decided to get in some serious practice. This sign does nicely- from a distance... :roll: Tim Barker from the UK is the designer- pattern was traced on- no masks, 4' x 8' with 1-shot:

Re: Mike's Design with a twist - Chalkboard art

Very cool idea- good for you! :lol:
Another thought though- how long does the paint mix have to dry before you can paint on the florishes???

glass work at home

It's one thing to do nice work at a workshop where the instructor is watching out for mis-steps, and quite another to try it at home, on your own! But that's how you learn... (again, the orange is just the backdrop for the photo)

The Bill Heug method was spar varnish to both surfaces, smooth out any (all) bubbles and allow to dry face up so the picture curls into the glass...
