Powder Shaker Tubes - set of 2
Correctly applying clear powder to layers of glass can be tricky with a powder sifter. Powder shakers makes this quick and easy, and nearly foolproof! Correctly applying clear powder will reduce bubbles between your layers and give you a more professional and clean result after firing.
To turn this plastic test tube into a powder shaker requires that you punch about 25 small holes in the thin metal cap with the Needle Tool or a safety pin - instructions are included. It's easy, and it takes only 5 minutes!
This item contains 2 tubes... great for having making two, with slightly different sized holes in the cap. This allows you one shaker for heavier powder, and a second for lighter powder.
Course 4 in Paul Messink's Creating Dimension video course covers bubble control in detail. It includes instructions on punching holes in the cap, which turns these tubes into Powder Shakers. It also includes several demos of how to apply the powder in the correct patterns to virtually eliminate large, distracting bubbles.
