Product Information
Printing with Glass Powder Set

Get started in Powder Printing with this specially designed kit.

Printing with Glass Powder is an economic and versatile way of introducing imagery into fused glass designs.  Passing your powders through a screen, rather than sifting them through a stencil, allows for finer detail and a clearer release.  You receive two stencils with your kit but any stencil smaller than 21 x 16cm will fit under the screen.

The Powder Printing Set includes:

  • One 21cm x 16cm Screen
  • Two Stencils
  • Screen Props
  • One Card Scraper
  • Four 15cm x 15cm 3mm Bullseye Clear Glass Pieces
  • Two 100g Jars of Coloured Bullseye Glass Powder
  • Full Instructions & Top Tips

Please note: Stencils and colours of powder included may vary from those shown in the image.

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

When powder printing, strong colours are best. 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 applications such as glass fusing, glass casting and glass slumping (unless otherwise stated in the description).

Great kit, easy to follow instructions so you can quickly get up to speed and see results. Belated thanks for the amazing customer service - Megan quickly dealt with a query about a stencil and sent a replacement without any hassle.

Great kit.Everything needed to get started and then to want to expand and experiment.I bought a couple of these as gifts for my grand daughters ..16 and 13..they love fusing bits and pieces with me.. and they loved trying this different method to create art . kept them off their phones too!

I really like this kit and found it easy to use with great results. Its inspired me to go on and produce my own stencils with equally great results. However, I was a little disappointed with the scraper. It is just a piece of card which has limited longevity! I think this should be made clearer in the description.

I have had so much fun, and learnt so much with this kit. A great starter kit...... and very addictive.

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.
