Problems and Solutions
This page will discuss some of the problems and solutions to your glass fusing adventure.
If you have any problems that are not discussed on these pages, please feel free to contact me through the contact page and I will be happy to help you.

These pages are only a reference guide and should only be taken as a suggestion to the problem.
Keep notes of all of your firing processes not only so that solutions to problems can be accessed, but so that fantastic outcomes can be repeated.
This can be done by printing out individual pages and placing them inside a folder, or purchasing a booklet to write all of your fusing procedures inside.
