What to bring to the workshop: 10 laser photocopies of your art from any commercial store, like Printonyx, Staples or FedEx. Not from a photo print and not an ink jet copy from a home printer.  These need to be flipped horizontally as a digital file to the left-right orientations if you wish, since the photocopies are placed face down on the wax and substrate.  Use only normal photocopy paper, not card of cover stock.  Ideally these should be sized a 1/4 inch larger than the short side of the substrate.  Panels are 5 x 7 inches, stone tiles are 3 x 5 inches and 4 x 4 inches.  Feel free to email Ray with questions if you have registered for the workshop.  Email –
