Make your own glass: Dots & Lines
Small components like stringers, frit, confetti or powder are applied to a 3mm thick Bullseye Sheet Glass. The piece is fired at approx. 770 – 790°C, which nearly retains the 3 mm glass thickness and allows to cut the piece like any other 3mm glass sheet. The components can be fused face-up or face-down.
Important: Cut the base glass slightly larger than the size planned in the finished piece.
Fuse frit and/or stringer on to the base glass and let to cool in the kiln. Cut base glass to planned size and combine with the surrounding glass. Fuse composition on a 3 mm Tekta base. Fullfuse at about 815°C. Slump in a second firing at 650°C using Creative Ceramics Slumping Mould no. 958.297
