Photo Transfers on Glass
Photo transfers onto glass are another service provided by Half Moon Studio. These pieces are often created to honor a relative, friend, or admired person and go beyond merely transferring the image. Shrine pieces in constructed boxes as well as more complexly designed glass frames for wall pieces are shown in the examples in the gallery. The image transfer is usually done by manipulating the photograph in a Photoshop program so it can be “burned” onto a silkscreen. Glass powder is pushed through the screen and then fired onto the base glass. These photo images are permanent pieces of art whose colors do not fade with time.
