In this class we will be looking at creating images using photoresist stencil material as a mask for sandblasting. Detailed images, text and patterns can be created on glass using this technique. Students will utilise our per-selected images and learn how to use a uv light to expose onto a uv sensitive film that adheres to the glass and creates a stencil suitable for sandblasting. Students will make a variety of text tiles and one glass or bottle. We will be looking at blasting though layers of irridised glass and powder layers, deep carving, imaging on a 3D object and working paints into blasted images. All materials other than a bottle or glass are included in the class fee.
