How to Paint & Print on Stained Glass

For painters with an itch to try something new, a workshop starting in two weeks explores a different way to approach the medium.

Joseph Cavalieri is a glass artist in New York who paints on stained glass, much like medieval artists did — except with modern imagery and a healthy dose of silk screen and airbrushing, too. This fall, he’s visiting The Art League to teach a five-day workshop, Painting, Airbrushing, & Silk-Screening on Stained Glass. No experience with glass is necessary!

In this blog post on cavaglass.com, Cavalieri gives nine steps to silk-screening on glass. His technique uses enamel paint that is later kiln-fired.

“Silk-screening on glass is very similar to silk-screening on paper, except for two big differences, the glass doesn’t absorb the ink, and, in my studio, I kiln fire the enamel based paint to the surface of the glass.”
