I’m involved in a powder painting…glass powders. I’ve made a pastel and I’m working on recreating it with glass powders. I’ve done tests and am still planning on some more. I’ve been mixing the powders with glue and making a paste. Sometimes it’s too runny and sometimes too stiff. I guess I’m looking for a bit of a goldilock’s technique, something that’s just right. There are a number of places you can visit over on the internets to see what information on this is pout there. Even Wikipedia has some info. I’m also planning tomorrow to work with straight powder. Had to get some more dust masks first though. I’ll provide pictures of some of my samples…Richard LaLonde’s technique is what I’m working on next…let’s see what happens.
