Product Information
Printing with Glass Powder Set

Printing with glass powder is a relatively cheap and extremely versatile way of introducing imagery into your fused glass designs.  Passing your glass powders through a screen rather than sifting them through the stencil allows you to work with finer detail and achieve a clearer release.  You will receive two stencils with your kit but any stencil that is smaller than 21 x 16cm will fit under the screen.

Get going with Powder Printing with this easy to use kit, including:

  • One 21x16cm screen
  • Two stencils
  • Screen props
  • One scraper
  • Four 15x15cm pieces of 3mm Bullseye clear glass
  • Two 100g jars of coloured Bullseye glass powder.  
  • Full instructions including some top tips for powder printing. 

Please note, the stencils and colours of powder included in your kit may vary from those shown in the image.

You will also need:

  • Kiln
  • Kiln Shelf
  • Bullseye Thinfire paper or Shelf Primer
  • FFP3 Dust Mask

It is important to wear a dust mask when working with powders.

When powder printing, strong colours are best (and two are provided in this kit).  Colours we recommend include: Black 0100.08, Deep Red 0224.08, Red 0124.08, Tomato Red 0024.08, Orange Opal 0125.08, Dark Forest Green 0141.08, Jade Green 0145.08, Steel Blue Opal 0146.08, Deep Cobalt Blue 0147.08, Midnight Blue 1118.08, Aventurine Blue 1140.08, Deep Royal Purple 1128.08, Dark Rose Brown 1109.08.

All our glass is COE90, Bullseye Glass compatible and suitable for warm glass applications such as glass fusing, glass casting and glass slumping (unless otherwise stated in the description).

I love the kit. It's easy to use and comes with clear instructions. I can see its potential for extending the range of what I can produce.

This is a really good starter kit, to get the feeling for "printing" on glass. The glass powder used, that comes in the kit is actually frit. Not to be confused with the drawing enamel powder and mixer that is available elsewhere on the site. This frit is quite coarse in comparison, but strangely enough it does go through the screen. The little screen that is in the kit will also be useful if you decide to go on to actual screen printing. It's just the right size for the supplied stencils. You will need a good work table and sheets of "butchers paper" to lay down, as the powder escapes no matter how hard you try to contain it. Use a good dust mask, you will need it, and don't rub your eyes with the glass dust on your hands. I wouldn't let children handle this at all. It's not suitable.
But for adults and young people who know how to be careful... it's a great exercise. The powder can be laid down on the glass (supplied) in varying thicknesses. The more time you pull the scraper across the screen, the more powder is deposited. You can also mix your colours if you are careful. Because you simply won't get fine detail, and no sharp edges to the prints, you can merge colours like carefully drawing black powder across where some parts go, and then drawing say green across where leaves are for example. The resulting waste powder will be a mix of course, and will need a separate bottle to go in if you want to keep it.
It took me about 10 minutes to set up the first screen and "print" a piece of glass. I then tack fuse it to hold it in place until I get the next stage ready.
You will also need a roll of that brown parcel/masking tape to stick the stencil to the screen. Don't use industrial strength shipping tape - you do want to be able to remove the stencil at the end. Be careful here too, because you will have powder/frit between the stencil and the screen by this stage. Again, be careful removing it, and tipping it back in the bottle. Because it is quite coarse, it flows easily, but also contains finer particles, so be careful.
All in all a great kit to get started with. Make your own stencils. Get more screens. Get lots of different colours.
