Here's our list of 5 Favorite New Items from the February 2013 edition of Stained Glass News.
1. Snowflake Casting Molds from Colour de Verre
With the new premium mold from Colour de Verre you can make incredibly detailed, beautiful snowflakes. There are so many ways you can use these snowflakes. Hang them on their own (they are light) or incorporate them into projects. We’re excited about how creative you can get making the snowflakes – depending on the size of frit and firing temperature. LOVE them with dichroic!

2. Barefoot Tools are Back and Better Than Ever!
The Bearfoot Tools line has some of our customer's favorite tool; and we would have to agree! After recently not being available in glass art, the tools are now back with extra features and available in money-saving kits. Have the popular tools? Now there are tons of convenient accessories to get the most out of them. We are thrilled to once again be able to offer these tools to glass artists. If haven’t tried one yet, see why these tools are so loved.
3. New System 96 Icicle Clear is Designed to Save You $$$
Delphi and Spectrum glass have worked hard to find solutions that will keep prices of glass down in spite of continually rising costs of raw materials. Because Spectrum must increase the price of System 96 Clear, they have developed a new clear fusible formula, Icicle Clear, that is economy priced.
Icicle Clear has a slightly bluish hue, which should be a non-issue for the majority of fusers using clear as a project base or a clear cap. It is made using the same devit-resistance and tested compatibility standards that fusers trust with System 96 glass. Regular Clear and Crystal Clear will continue to be available at Delphi. New economy priced Icicle Clear is available in Standard, Thin and Iridescent.
4. Smaller Wheeled Glass Nipper and More Top Tools
A smaller sized wheeled glass nipper has long been on our tool wish list. Now it’s here! The 7” wheeled glass nipper is part of the new Top Tools line which also includes breaker/grozers, lead dykes and running pliers.
5. Add Dichroic Sparkle with Frit Flakes
Now you can get dichroic frit in a smaller size. Regular dichroic frit is the coarse size.
New dichroic frit flakes are the medium size. So any projects that requrie medium sized frit glass – your creative options just got a lot more exciting.
Created by CBS Dichroic. Available in both 90
and 96 COE.
