Photographic emulsion on glass? Yep, you can even put photos onto your warm glass art! People have been experimenting with applying photographs to glass for quite sometime now. However, there is still much room for more research into this area and innovative fused glass artists will find this creative potential a real draw. Photographic emulsion is also known as "liquid light" on glass.
I've decided that this month will be dedicated to tips and tricks on glass and print. Having said that I would like to say that there is huge potential for creative expression in the world of Glass and Print for both the fused glass artist and glass blower alike.
Looking to experiment with a new type of fused glass? Than try using an experimental new product called IIG for your next warm glass project. IIG stands for Instant Ice Glass and is a revolutionary new way of creating art. Instead of using your kiln you use your freezer to create stunning masterpieces.
Just mix the IIG solution with 2 parts flower, 1 part water and then place in your freezer over night. Before falling asleep concentrate really hard on how you want the piece to turn out. Alpha waves sent via your mind instantly react with the IIG solution and begin to create Chihuly like designs. By morning your new glass artwork should be fully formed and ready to display in fine art galleries across the world..............*sigh* if it were only that easy......happy April Fools.
