1. Copy and cut out the design.
2. Rest the pieces on the fitting color glass and sketch close to the stencil with a permanent marker. Generously shelter the markings with beeswax or Chap Stick.
3. A glass saw is required to cut the outline. Cut near the outline to retain the outline and all the tiny details.
4. Bathe with dish soap and soak in plain water or use glass cleaner to do away with all pen marks and residue. Dry the items.
5. Pose the portions on a ready kiln ledge and pose the shelf in the kiln. At all times hold the glass by the side to avoid fingerprints. This is where you add your creative talent. Use some Glassline paints to personalize these pieces, or some scrap glass. Cap with a clear glass cutout of the pattern.
6. Shut the top or access. Turn on the unit.
7. Monitor the task at almost 1325 degrees Fahrenheit. While peeking at your hot glass have on glasses with IR and UV shield.
8. When the glass possesses your wanted appearance, switch off and disconnect the unit. If the kiln is made with thick fire bricks, you can let it cool down on its own. On the other hand if it is made with ceramic fiber, the unit must remain on and checked so that it does not cool down any more than in the region of about 300 degrees Fahrenheit an hour.
9. When the temperature drops under 100 degrees Fahrenheit, the kiln can be opened.
10. When the piece has cooled to room temperature, add a brooch back. Adhere the brooch back with a two part epoxy.
