Powder wafers provide a new opportunity for fusers to create imagery, abstract design elements, and to give work a hand-wrought, painterly quality. They are easy and fun to make, and they fire quickly.
You can also use this method to sift powders directly onto your glass work.
We are proud to use Bullseye Glass for all of our tutorials and our personal work.

Powder wafers are fun, easy and fast. Lots of things can be used as stencils: screens, kitchen tools (think colanders and strainers), paper with holes punched in it, torn card stock edges. The master of all things powder is Bob Leatherbarrow, a Canadian glass artist. www.LeatherbarrowGlass.com
