Sassy Glass's Profile


Bio

I have loved pretty glass since I was a child but all I did was collect it until 2011. In 2011 I set up a studio in my home which I have been adding to ever since. I love bright colors and fun organic or folk art pieces. I am a member of the Glass Art Guild of Utah. I have pieces at Art at the Main Gallery in Salt Lake www.artatthemain.com. I am currently organizing an artist cooperative glass art gallery in Salt Lake City, Utah. You can contact me at: [email protected]

Love this sparkle, May 10, 2014 5 stars
Pros
I experimented with this before I used it on the piece I wanted. I mixed it with paint medium and brushed on and then did a dry powder sift. I wanted a fairy dust effect so went with the dry powder sift. The result is brilliant! I did another by air brushing on translucent. Let it dry and then covered. Just adds a glow!
Cons
All Mica powders need to be experimented with before you use on your final piece. Keep in mind that is has to be fused between glass and even if you brush on wet or air brush wet when it dries it will smear if not covered right away.
Other Thoughts
Be sure and keep it within 1/4 inch of the edge. Any mica not covered with another layer of glass will just fall away.

Beautiful Ripple water effect, August 5, 2013 4 stars
Pros
I added this frit on top of cut and stacked glass to create wave "crests" on water. It also makes lovely "snow" with white opal when fused to a tack stage.
Cons
Other Thoughts
I have used this on opals when I wanted a feature to stand out and shimmer.

Perfect Melts!, August 5, 2013 5 stars
Pros
I love this screen system. I get perfect round melts each time and don't have to do any cutting or edge polishing when they are done. The glass melts thru the screen more easily than other melt molds leaving LESS left over glass to deal with. Because of the size of the screen I can arrange glass colors on it to get many different patterns. The bottom ring can also be used by itself. Just line with fiber paper.
Cons
I have used 8 times since I purchased and have no negative feed back.
Other Thoughts
I spray with the Boron Nitride both the inside ring below AND THE SCREEN ABOVE.
