• Relief printing, from carving the initial block to transferring the carved image to glass.

• Two different methods of resist printing on glass.

• Etching with both a sandblaster and with a mild acid.

• Engraving with both diamond bits and with wheels.

• Creating unique one-of-a-kind monoprints using common objects.

• Using the solarplate as a way to print on glass.

• An overview of vitreography, the process of using glass plates as the matrix for printing on paper.

• Extensive instructions for mixing, applying, drying, and firing glass enamels.

In addition to troubleshooting sections for the techniques, Printmaking Techniques on Glass offers alternative applications and uses where appropriate. Topics such as Health and Safety and Firing Schedules, are also covered.

This is an excellent book which took me from being slightly interested in printmaking to being hugely interested. It is written in a very friendly, inspiring manner, giving excellent lists of equipment required, and easy, straight forward instructions for each technique. There are also great references with pictures to wonderful examples of great work which allows the reader to quickly realise the potential of these techniques. I would definately buy other books written by Jody Danner Walker, and I'd also rate Simon as providing good advice on which books to buy. Cheers WG.
