Re: Questions about rock inclusions

My daughter collected tiny pieces of iron ore that wash out of our hill for inclusions in some glass tests I wanted to do. My husband became alarmed and suggested I post to the board. I saw a wonderful bowl where the bottom was slumped over a mound of rocks - very cool which provided the inspiratio...

My five year-old niece was here in April and wanted to work in glass. I did her handprint with Barry Kaiser's pre-mixed enamel paint. It was fired on top without a cap and while we did lose a little color, it was ok. This was orange paint, with the photo taken before firing the piece: handprint.jpg...

fusing hand prints and paints

hi,

i thought i read somewhere on the board that we can get a handprint impression by putting palm of hand in glass paints then printing handprint onto glass blank, capping, and firing.

can't seem to find it on search.

anyone know this technique, or another, to get a hand print?

thanks,

reba
