Photoresist image making on glass (sandblasting)

For: beginners
Tutor: Andrew Gleeson

Course Outline

In this class we will look 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 pre-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 look at blasting through 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.
