Working on glass with the “Relief Motif”.
- Outline pattern.
- Decide which part of the design is going to be done in the Relief Motif.
- For design on the right the buds of the flowers and the dot accents are done in the Relief Motif.
- On the glass, you can either use straight from the jar for white designs or tint the Relief Motif with either the Color Concentrates or the Fired Glass Powders. Remember you are adding color to a white base so it will lighten the final color.
- Fill in other areas of your design with your fired glass colors.
- The buds here were Relief Motif tinted with CC132 Deep Cranberry. And sumi shaded with pure Deep Cranberry at the ends when dry.
- Green ends of the buds are a 50/50 mix of Relief Motif and G361 Green Leaf glass color powder. 1 coat.
- Dot accents are the Relief Motif straight from the jar. 1 coat.
With the Colors for Earth fired system it allows you to use our translucent underglazes; Color Concentrates to tint the Relief Motif and use on glass combined with our fired glass colors.
TIP: Even though Color Concentrates are products designed for ceramic surfaces we can use them in combination on glass because they are a pure pigment in a gel base.
NOTE: Do not try to use the Color Concentrates directly on glass.
