Drawing Lines with Glass Powder

If you're sifting powders and want to draw straight lines, try using a line sifter.  This handy tool, which contains a small conical reservoir on the end of a metal rod, allows you draw precise lines onto sheet glass.  Simply fill the reservoir with powder, rub or tap the sides of the metal rod, and powder will be deposited in precise lines on the glass sheet below. Thompson Enamels makes line sifters in two different sizes, 1/16" and 1/32". 

You can also make your own line sifter using a piece of paper curled into a funnel, a bolo tie end welded to another piece of metal, or a similar device.
