Product Description

Transform your powdered frit into a firm, non-sticky clay like material! This unique two-part kit consisting of a powdered binder and liquid medium allows artists to combine any powder frit with water to create their own claylike, modeling material.

Roll it flat, cut it, create coils or press it into a silicone mold or texture sheet to form it. You can even sand it when it's dry to finalize your shape before firing. Thin with water to create beautiful palette-knife textures.

Kit includes 3.5 oz powder binder, 2 oz liquid medium, and instruction sheet. Makes over 3 lbs. Made with non-toxic, food-grade ingredients. Modeling glass does not affect the compatibility of the glass. Compatible with all glass COEs.

Instructions for Mixing a 4 oz 90 COE Batch:

  • 1/2 cup plus 2 level teaspoons glass powder
  • Two 1/2 level teaspoons powdered binder
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 teaspoons water
  • 1 teaspoon liquid medium

Instructions for Mixing a 4 oz 96 COE Batch:
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 level teaspoons glass powder
  • 1 level tablespoon powdered binder
  • 1/4 cup plus 2-1/4 teaspoons water
  • 1 teaspoon liquid medium

Note: Combine dry ingredients thoroughly, then add water and mix. Add liquid medium last. It is important to mix in this order only.

Vendor Tips:
  • The binder and liquid medium burn out during the early stages of firing leaving behind just the glass. It is recommended to vent your kiln to 1000* degrees F.
  • Modeling Glass can be stored in a plastic airtight container. If you plan to store it longer than a few days, wrap the ball in plastic wrap before placing in into the container. Modeling Glass will keep for several months.
NOTE: The mixing instructions for Modeling Glass were developed for use with Bullseye Glass powders. The ratio for mixing Modeling Glass with Oceanside/Spectrum/Uroboros or other powders is slightly different. INCREASE BINDER from two 1/2 level teaspoons (6g) to 1 level tablespoon (7g). INCREASE WATER from 1/4 cup plus 2 teaspoons (60g) to 1/4 cup plus two 1/4 teaspoons (70g).

Delphi Tips:
  • Use silicone mats when working with wet clay to avoid clay sticking to your work surface.
  • Pre-fire glass accents to be added to projects in the future
  • We found firing to a tack fuse between 1300° – 1360° F
  • If you stored clay dries out you can reconstitute it with a bit of water, we found using a spray bottle works great

Pros : Allows for sculpting into many shapes and textures to create small 3D pieces which can stand alone or be incorporated into larger fused glass work. Easy to use. This can expand your creativity! It can be used to make complex shapes without cutting or using expensive molds!
Cons : Works best opaque glass. (not really a Con though.)
Other Thoughts : Can be used with fine glass frit, but glass powders are much easier to work with.
