Materials:

  • Pattern
  • Body glass
  • Dots
  • Glass cleaner of choice
  • Chap Stick or Beeswax
  • Glass saw
  • Fiber Paper
  • Kiln
  • Prepared kiln shelf
  • Protective glasses
  • Two part Epoxy
  • Pin Back


  • Directions:

    1. Sketch and cut out the design.

    2. Position the portions on the fitting colorful glass and sketch close to the model with a permanent pen. Liberally shelter the drawing with beeswax or Chap Stick.

    3. A glass saw is required to cut out the pattern. Follow close to the outline to maintain the form and all the precise particulars.

    4. Launder with soap and dip in clean water or employ glass cleaner to take away the design and residue. Using a lint free towel, dry the pieces.

    5. Arrange the pieces on a all set up kiln ledge and put the shelf within the kiln. At all times hold the glass by the perimeter to avoid fingerprints.

    6. Shut the lid or door. Start the kiln.

    7. View the fused piece at roughly 1325 degrees Fahrenheit. When looking at your projects have on glasses with IR and UV shield.

    8. Once the piece has your wanted look, switch off and unplug the kiln. If the kiln is put together with dense fire bricks, you can allow it to cool down by it’s self. If however it is made with ceramic fiber, the kiln must be left on and supervised so that it doesn’t cool off any more than in the region of about 300 degrees Fahrenheit an hour.

    9. When the pyrometer goes down lower than 100 degrees Fahrenheit, the oven can be opened.

    10. As soon as the project has cooled down to room temperature, you can add a brooch back. Adhere the brooch back with a two part epoxy.
