Delphi Technical Tips:
Paper only works with black and white laser printers with an iron oxide based toner.
Heat up your printer first by running 6 or 7 test prints on regular paper.
Use on light colored glass for better contrast.

Shown are the simple steps of selecting an image, printing on the fusible photo paper, and the finished project after the design was transferred to glass and fired. Note: Most all-in-one printer models do not use a compatible toner, a single function laser printer usually produces best results. Be sure to research the type of toner used to find a model that will produce quality images in your glass art.

Other Thoughts : Bought a MICR (check-printing) toner cartridge for my printer to get correct iron content. Check online to see if there is one available for your printer. Most of the newer laser printers don't have the required iron content in their regular cartridges, but the MICR cartridges need the iron to enable them to be machine-processed.
Fired above tack fuse, but below full fuse. 200 deg. ramp to 1100, hold for 20 min., ramp at 500 deg. to 1325, hold for 10 min., drop to 950 and hold for an hour, then 100 deg/hr to 700 deg.
Nice deep brown image on flat glass, did not cap it, will probably try fusemaster over-glaze to protect it.
Slumped into a wavy dish shape at 200 deg/hr to 1000 deg. then 500 deg/hr to 1280, soak for 20 min., drop to 950 and hold for 1 hour, then 100 deg/hr to 700. Slumped perfectly and did not distort image.
Giving an incredible handmade gift can be easy, and doesnt have to take much time from your busy holiday schedule. This season, design a keepsake plate and take advantage of the firing time to whip up some cookies in the kitchen for a special gift that will last beyond the last scrumptious bite. 5 tips for creating quick plates 1. Apply wash to your mold before getting started on your fused design. This will allow plenty of time for multiple coats to dry before it is time to slump. 2. Using two pre-cut circles (available in 90 COE or 96 COE) as the base of your plate makes it the right thickness for a full fuse, so you can focus on adding details instead of cutting glass. 3. Fusible pre-cut shapes (available in 90 COE or 96 COE) and millefiori (available in 90 COE or 96 COE) make creating fast.
