Working with Micas and Irids
The metallic shine of micas and iridization exist as the thinnest of layers on the glass surface - and that's the magic.
This class will teach you a variety of ways of working with micas - including air brushing, mica "leather" and more. You will also learn a variety of sandblasting methods to selectively remove the material (as well as iridization) for some real palette-expanding techniques!
You'll learn about the unique "separating" properties of mica and iridized surfaces and how to use them to your advantage for fantastic effects.
Students will also learn how to create sandblasting stencils from computer or hand drawn black and white images using the "photoresist" process.
Students will take home:
- a selection of sample tiles to uses as reference pieces for future work
- a small finished bowl
Embrace your inner sparkle!
