One of the most popular section of Tony's Intro to Fusing class is the screenprinting portion.  Each class we have had, students ask us if we would do a class specifically on that subject.  Yes we can!  Screenprinting is a great way to add text, designs, and even photos to fuseed art.  We’ll cover types of paint to use, how to create a screen, how to use the screen to apply the image to your glass, and tips on how to create your own screen jig!  Each students goes home with a screen with an image on it, and 2 Fused plates.
