Fusing Glass Shapes Comment by Jennifer Bonesteel on Friday, January 16, 2015
@Diane6520 I think the sheet you are referring to is referring to glass separator, otherwise known as kiln wash. Molds should always be kiln washed with a glass separator to prevent sticking. For slumping you don't necessarily need Primo Primer but the application method is the same for regular kiln wash. You can watch a video about it on ArtGlassTV using the link below: After that you simply balance your glass on the mold and use a standard slumping schedule. For more basic information about fusing firing schedules you can visit the link below: Unfortunately we don't have a Dealer location in your area but if you look on the Yellow Pages and search Art Glass you will find a few results and may be able to find the help you need. I hope that helps you get started - if not, feel free to call our customer service team - they will be more than happy to assist you.
