Don't Miss Limited Edition Fusers' Reserve Glass
Available only while supplies last - don't miss your chance to create with limited edition glass. Made in small batches, this tested compatible fusible glass is a fantastic way to create one-of-a-kind art.
Reactive OpalArt™ is an un-assuming clear texture, but it creates extraordinary color reactions in your fused art. The special formulation contains swirls of tin throughtout the glass, which will react to glass containing copper to create a burgundy tone where the two meet.
Note: you must position the tin-bearing (topside) of the glass against the copper-bearing glass to create a reaction. To find the topside, run your fingertips across the glass; the side on which the swirl texture can be felt is the topside.
This nearly colorless glass goes into the kiln, and creates rich burgundy and red tones where there is a reaction.

Artist Jeannette W., created dots platter using Y-96 glass. Notice turquoise dots picked up OpalArt swirl pattern when fired. Y-96 glass may have some devitrification. For this project the Y-96 glass was fired 3 times, try coating with super spray to prevent this. Last project image courtesy of Kim France, from Delphi's Online Artist Gallery.
