Arched Scary Cat
This Scary Cat Halloween pin depicts a cat with its back up and ready to attack anyone who approaches. Its sleek body is an attention-grabbing design. Witches and cats are the two most enduring Halloween symbols and the most popular selection for costumes.
Halloween cat lore and superstitions persevere to this very day. A black cat is associated with evil. The Celts would sometimes sacrifice a cat in a bonfire during their festival. Witches were believed to be shape shifters and would most often take the form of cats. Sometimes they believed that cats were reincarnated witches.
Pet owners usually keep their black cats inside around Halloween for fear that they might be used in satanic rituals. But don’t be a scaredy cat! This cat pin is an attractive adornment despite the fact that the color is associated with evil. Superstitious prejudice and Halloween lore make these felines an emblem of this festive holiday.

1. Draw and cut out the stencil (there is a pattern at the bottom of this page).
2. Lay down the pieces on the correct tint glass and sketch about the shape with a permanent marker. Generously cover up the drawing with beeswax or Chap Stick.
3. A glass saw is desirable to cut the shape. Follow near the line to retain the shape and all the small details.
4. Cleanse with soap and soak in plain water or employ glass cleaner to strip off the pen marks and scum. Air dry the items.
5. Position the sections on a all set up kiln ledge and put the shelf in the kiln. Be sure to grip the glass by the side to avoid fingerprints.
6. Close up the top or access. Switch on the kiln.
7. View the job at approximately 1325 degrees Fahrenheit. While peeking at your hot glass have on glasses with IR and UV shield.
8. As soon as the project possesses your preferred look, shut down and unplug the kiln. If the kiln is manufactured with thick fire bricks, you can permit it to cool down on its own. On the other hand if it is constructed with ceramic fiber, the kiln must be kept on and supervised so that it does not cool off more than approximately 300 degrees Fahrenheit per hour.
9. As soon as the temperature goes down under 100 degrees Fahrenheit, the kiln may be opened.
10. When the fused piece has cooled down to room temperature, you can add a brooch back. Stick on the brooch back with a two part epoxy.
