Painting the Void: Sandblasting and Vitreous Painting

All Levels
Two-Week Session

This class offers a foundation in image-making inspired by the interface between intaglio printmaking and painting when one combines sandblasting and enameling on glass. Our primary goals are learning to modulate shadow and light by using sand-blasting and vitreous painting. Developing fluency in making hand-cut sandblasted stencils, photo resist stencils, methods of stage-blasting, paint preparations, and applications such as tracing and matting, and firing, all form the core of our technical undertakings. We will explore the graphic possibilities of filling intaglio areas of sandblasted imagery with vitreous paint, and the removal of color from cased glass, as well as the layering images into fused blocks. No glassworking experience is required.
