THIS IS AN E-BOOK DOWNLOAD - Please see below for details on buying and accessing this e-book.

The first in a series on Bob Leatherbarrow’s artistic journey working with glass powders.  Bob Leatherbarrow is internationally renowned for the unique techniques, textures and colour palettes he has developed using Bullseye glass powders.

This technical guide, based on workshops taught over the past decade, provides the foundation for creating:

FEATURES:

  • 87 pages of clearly documented step-by-step instructions for creating crackle texture, and micro and backed wafers
  • 78 quality images to illustrate the step-by-step instructions
  • Detailed explanations of important but subtle details, e.g. how the water/powder ratio affects crackle texture quality, how powder layer thickness affects cracked texture size, and how powder layering sequence affects the crackle texture colour
  • Firing schedules and the logic behind their development (in both Celsius and Fahrenheit)
  • Guidelines for finishing and slumping projects into gallery quality pieces
  • A gallery of finished artwork, with accompanying stories, to illustrate a range of applications for the techniques described in this book
