Mame posted a link in the Abstract/Contemp forum for an artist that had some vitreograph prints. That's a new one on me.
Does anyone here use this process?

I found a demo here:

Looks like it's pretty exciting. What'd'ya think?

This is a new one for me too. I'll check out the demo later today. Thanks for posting this, Gisela:)

It sounds interesting enough...but I'm having trouble with the idea of putting glass through a press. Even if it is surrounded my masonite. I'm having enough problems fihuring out the correct pressure...LOL!

I don't think I could ever put glass through my press under any conditions. Plexiglass I use all the time. Do you think that would be as effective?

I don't know -- I heard from a lady in Georgia yesterday that does vitreograph prints, but she says that she uses a sandblasting method with a photo resist (??) I invited to to join us here -- it sound fascinating!
If she does join -- her name is Linda -- let's give her a big WC welcome! :D
