Product Description

Luminescent coating is unlike anything else - offering up options for intense color, subtle shimmer or the ability to make it disappear entirely!
The coating on Luminescent glass is similar to iridized coatings, however it reacts completely differently when fired. It's ideal for reverse fusing projects, where the front of your piece is face down on the kiln shelf and you build backwards. This allows you to create in a whole new way, and your art will look its best from both sides!

Luminescent coating is applied to Clear Transparent glass, ideal for creating layered art. Standard 3mm thick glass offers affordable luxury for your fusing projects. 90 COE.

Get different effects depending on how you use it:

• Fire coated side down on a kiln wash dusted fiber shelf to intensify the coating.
• Fire coated side down on a kiln washed shelf or shelf paper to keep a brilliant luster.
• Fire coated side up, and the coating will stay vibrant on dark colors or fade to a beautiful delicate sheen on light colors.
• Cover the coated side with a piece of clear and the coating will fade away completely.
See examples in additional images.

Delphi Tip: Fire glass luminescent side down to ensure the coating will remain intact for additional firings. In subsequent firings use the lowest temperature required to achieve desired results. Delphi Expert Jeannette W. suggests a maximum temperature of 1400°F.

When and how did you get started in stained glass? Ive been interested in stained glass for as long as I can remember. As a child, I would sit in churches and watch the (often) biblical depictions come to life when a stray ray of sunlight cast its illumination our way. Sun shadows dancing. I dabbled in many media over the years, trying to find an outlet for some of the visions careening inside, but none of them took. Drawing, painting - even watercolours - no amount of professional training could guide my hand in a satisfactory way. But then there was the glass. I lived abroad for a few years, and wound my way through Europe on my way back to the States when I finished my Peace Corps Service. My last international destination was Paris, where one of my closest friends lives as an organist. Two beautiful autumn

Chances are, right now, in reading this blog post, youre avoiding an overdue task. I too was avoiding a laundry list of work-related tasks in writing this. Procrastination is a part of life, and its certainly always been a part of mine. As a teenager, my parents would accuse me of putting off everything from piano practice to math homework. Id vehemently deny their charges hissing back, I work better under pressure. The truth was, I often felt overwhelmed, under-productive and anxious. Over the years, Ive been able to combat my avoidance issues using 4 tools. The trick is constantly reminding myself of these actions, because they do not come naturally to me. 1. Just Say No. I say yes to everything. Need someone to head up that event? Sure. Want me to design 12 posters for the Car Wash? No problem. Take your kid to daycare? Of course.
