Etched Dichroic Imagery Table TopTray Sept 13 14  by Carmen Flores Tanis
Mad Craft Skills ““Stacked Etched Glass Panel” – the most in-depth class I teach covering how to use Mad Craft Skills Printable Resist

• Two session class – Saturday September 13 & Sunday September 14, 2014
• taught at CBS Coatings by Sandburg in Orange, CA

You’ve read about it in the latest issue of Glass Patterns Quarterly – a fun new way to etch dichroic glass! In this class, Carmen Flores Tanis will go into detail as she teaches you her new technique for etching your unique artwork onto dichroic glass using a laser printer and a printable resist film. Other than the film, this technique uses no special tools or materials, is simple, inexpensive and as long as your image is in high contrast black and white – your artwork can be anything – clipart, photos, logos or original artwork. Imagine the possibilities!

You will learn:
• how to prepare your artwork in Photoshop
• what types of glass work best
• how to print out your artwork and apply it to the glass
• how to apply the etching cream and
• how to remove the resist.

You’ll practice using ring saws and grinders and finish up the first session prepping the pieces for kiln firing overnight.

The next day, you’ll return to assemble your new dichroic treasures into a 8” x 12” table top/tray using the super easy, super quick “double indirect method”.

Feel free to bring along your favorite black & white high contrast image on USB stick or CD and you can try your hand at etching it!

***Class consists of two sessions – the first session is seven hours long (9 am – 4 pm) and the second is three hours (10 am – 1pm). (Feel free to bring a bagged lunch.)

*** All levels welcome – $175 plus $40 materials fee
