The AAE video, “Impression Wafers: Printing with Powders” featuring Bob Leatherbarrow, demonstrates a simple, new process for making thin, detailed design elements in powder. A type of powder wafer, these are perfect for using as design components in projects. For artists interested in printing techniques for kilnformed processes, impression wafers are a great addition to your repertoire.
There are two steps to creating impression wafers: making the design and applying colours. In Step 1, you will learn how to create and shape an embossed pattern using existing texture mats or your own pattern on a flexible mat. In Step 2 you will learn to hand colour the wafer using glass powders, enamels, micas or other surface treatments so that each piece is unique.
The video outlines easy-to-follow, step-by-step instructions and firing schedules for creating a range of effects and for firing completed wafers onto glass sheets to ensure crisp outlines in a project. As an added bonus, instructions are given for making a gallery quality sushi dish that incorporates one of your completed impression wafers.
Take your printing with powders to a whole new level!
