Susan I enjoyed watchig your video very much. I have tried glass painting and was not very good at it. Actually it was worse than that!! I tried different things and I could never do anything nice. You have taken glass painting to a new level.
It is nice to see traditional themes. The Yemen is so full of colour.
Hiya!Just a quick note to tell you i do cut those letters into a thin foamsheet (3mm) with a cutter and fill it up with my modellingpaste which gives a nice 3D effect;Same with any other pattern but i've never tried arabic calligraphy that way; An algerian friend did it in fibrite and it turned out nice; Not perfect like yours but different,if i have time i'll post it for you.

So once i have my image printed onto transparency film, I take my Ezscreen silk screen which has been coated in light sensitive emulsion (These sheets come pre-coated so they are ready to use). Place it onto a black board, then place the transparency image on top (this part needs to be done in a dark room with no direct sunlight). I take it outside and expose it for 1 minute and 40 seconds (but time varies depending on time of day and strength of sunlight). After i have exposed the image i place it into a tub of water for around 5 - 8 minutes. Then i rinse the screen out under fast running water until the unexposed area (the black) washes away. I then expose the screen to the sun for a further 20mins to completely harden the light sensitive emulsion.
And this is the completed screen ready for printing. I simply use an old credit card to spread the ink over the screen making sure i do one complete full stroke across the screen (holding the credit card at a 45 degree angle). I immediately wash the screen out under fast flowing water and pat dry. I use fabric screen printing ink which washes out in water (which makes the process easy).
I love this product, their website is http://ezscreenprint.com/ (for full instructions and details on how to purchase this awesome product).
