Fine Art Applications Using Pigmented UV Adhesives
Sidney Hutter, Sidney Hutter Glass & Light Inc.
My presentation will discuss the research and use of pigment technology with UV dispersing and suspension agents in my fine art glass sculptures. In previous presentations (2006 and 2010) I described the use of UV adhesives, dyes, UV stabilizers and photo initiators as they applied to my studio practices. I will briefly discuss the above topics as they relate to the history of my work leading to recent adventures in Colored and Special Effect Pigment technology to solve fading issues. In addition I will discuss the incorporation of Dispersing and Suspension Agents and the reexamination of photo initiators used to create my own UV adhesive recipes.
