Basic Crackle Texture, Micro and Backed Wafers
by Bob Leatherbarrow
This technical guide, based on workshops taught over the past decade, provides the foundation for creating:
- crackle texture
- two versions of powder wafers (micro and backed wafers)
If you are interested in working with texture and design components using kilnformed glass powder, this is the book for you!
- 87 pages of clearly documented step-by-step instructions for creating crackle texture, and micro and backed wafers
- 78 quality images to illustrate the step-by-step instructions
- detailed explanations of important but subtle details, e.g., how the water/powder ratio affects crackle texture quality, how powder layer thickness affects crackle texture size, and how powder layering sequence affects the crackle texture colour
- firing schedules and the logic behind their development (in both °Celsius and °Fahrenheit)
- guidelines for finishing and slumping projects into gallery quality pieces
- a gallery of finished artwork, with accompanying stories, to illustrate a range of applications for the techniques described in this book
