Red Santa Pants
These red Santa pants are sure to capture the glances and remarks from everyone you greet. This is another piece of Santa’s wardrobe. With red pants trimmed with cotton white cuffs, these pants are recognized by everyone. Add a couple of suspenders to the pattern if desired. You could have them crossing or just standing up straight.
The pattern for this cute design can be found at the bottom of this page. As with all the pattern designs, these can be made into pins, turned into ornaments, or fused into any other glassware project. Be sure that you use glass that has the same COE for longevity of your projects.
Santa Claus pants are a creative way to celebrate the holiday season. They also make unique gifts to give for Christmas. Be sure to place them on your list for all the loved ones in your life.

1. Draw and cut the pattern.
2. Rest the members on the correct tint glass and sketch around the shape with a permanent marker. Generously envelop the traced design with beeswax or Chap Stick.
3. A glass saw is required to cut the pattern. Make a point of cutting close to the line to keep the outline and all the small fine points.
4. Cleanse with soap and soak in clear water or use glass cleaner to eliminate the design and residue. Air dry the items.
5. Assemble the parts on a all set up kiln shelf and put the shelf in the unit. Be sure to grip the glass by the edge to avoid fingerprints. Use a little hair spray to secure the stringers in place while fusing.
6. Close the lid or door. Turn on the oven.
7. Observe the fused piece at almost 1325 degrees Fahrenheit. While glimpsing at your fused glass wear glasses with IR and UV shield.
8. When the glass has your preferred appearance, turn off and unplug the kiln. If the unit is put together with thick fire bricks, you can let it cool down on its own. If however it is constructed with ceramic fiber, the kiln must be kept on and monitored so that it does not cool off any more than approximately 300 degrees Fahrenheit per hour.
9. As soon as the temperature drops underneath 100 degrees Fahrenheit, the kiln can be opened.
10. When the project has cooled down to room temperature, add a pin back. Adhere the pin back with a two part epoxy.
