A witchs brew stirring up evil for the Halloween holiday. Witches brew their potions in a black metal cauldron. This one is bubbling over with glass dots instead of the usual frog legs and other tonic requirements. You can’t practice witchcraft without the infamous cauldron or witch’s brew.
Use a brown piece of glass to represent the stirring stick inside the pot, and a green mixture glass for the bubbly concoction. Glass dots are used to create the illusion of bubbles popping to the surface of this brew.

1. Trace and cut the outline.
2. Lay down the sections on the suitable color glass and sketch around the guide with a permanent pen. Generously shield the traced design with beeswax or Chap Stick.
3. A glass saw is considered necessary to cut the design. Make a point of cutting close to the outline to retain the figure and all the meticulous fine points.
4. Cleanse with soap and rinse in clean water or employ glass cleaner to strip off the design and scum. Dry the objects.
5. Arrange the portions on a primed kiln ledge and arrange the shelf within the unit. Always hold the glass by the side to avoid fingerprints.
6. Shut the lid or door. Start the kiln.
7. Watch the piece at roughly 1325 degrees Fahrenheit. When looking at your projects wear glasses with IR and UV shield.
8. When the piece has your preferred appearance, shut down and disconnect the unit. If the unit is manufactured with dense fire bricks, you can permit it to cool down by it’s self. On the other hand if it is assembled with ceramic fiber, the unit must be left on and checked so that it doesn’t cool off any more than about 300 degrees Fahrenheit an hour.
9. Once the temperature goes down below 100 degrees Fahrenheit, the kiln can be opened.
10. When the fused piece has cooled down to room temperature, add a brooch back. Stick on the brooch back with a two part epoxy.
