Product Description

Don't Waste Expensive Glass
Dichroic blade features a slim profile and fine diamond grit, making it the perfect tool for cutting dichroic glass, iridescent, or any glass with a delicate finish. The narrow profile means less waste, and the fine grit produces a cut without chips. Clean edges mean lower temperatures and faster firing times for kiln fired jewelry creating a clean professional look. People who enjoy using copper foil can use thinner foil with less overlap creating finer lines and more detail. Use for a smooth finish to even your most intricate cuts.

Blade kit fits the Taurus 3 Ring Saw and includes grommets.

Seen below is a set of slab cast and cut dichroic pendants by Melanie Churchill and an etched dichroic pendant by Karina Foster. Also shown are intricate cut dichroic pins by Nancy Geddes, as seen in "Dichroics: Art Glass All Dressed Up" book #6224.

  •   Expensive Lesson
By on
Pros : Nice and thin.
Cons : After fitting (adjusted a few times) it snapped within the first 10 secs of use - probably had a weak spot.
Other Thoughts : Very expensive lesson. Will stick to the standard blade.

How and when did you get started in glass art? I saw an article about Kristin Frantzen-Orr along with a step by step example of how to do one of her famous floral beads. I talked about it so much my husband bought me a beginning torch set for the following Christmas. Once I got the kiln and the duel fuel torch, I just kept experimenting and growing from there. Kristin is still my idol and I keep telling myself that one day I will do nice, clean floral beads like hers. Your jewelry, vases, plates etc. are all beautiful. I especially love the geologic nature of your Copper Reactive dish, its so unique. Can you tell us a little about how you achieved that look? The base glass is Bullseye Steel Blue Opal (000146) and it reacts all on its own. I used clear stringers and broke up chunks

We tell ourselves not to judge a book by its cover, but the simple truth is, we are attracted to whats attractive. On a recent hunt for a birthday present for my mother, I came across several beautiful handbags in several different boutiques. What ultimately influenced my final purchase decision was the complimentary gift-wrapping offered by one of the storeowners. The handbag itself wasnt any prettier or better quality than the others I was considering, but the packaging was beautiful. Brightly colored tissue, a big sturdy box, quality wrapping paper and an oversized hand-tied bow. No, it wasnt sealed with a kiss, rather a large gold embossed sticker with the boutique name and logo (theres nothing wrong with a little discreet self-promotion). Here are a few tips for better packaging-it might just buy you your next customer. 1. Show your customers what theyll get. The boutique I mentioned earlier had

Delphi merchandiser Kayleigh McGrath recently shared some photos from her early days at Delphi. She was playing around with different colors and textures of glass and learning the hard way that there are limits to what you can do (and cant do) in fusing. The first image shows what happened when Kayleigh layered dichroic glass, coating to coating. The base is 90 COE dichroic rainbow pixi stix on black, (Delphi item 921714) and the top is an old texture we dont carry any more (cyan red radium on clear.) The second image is of a piece Kayleigh loved so much she impatiently removed it from the kiln when it was still too hot (havent we all done this. ) As you can see, it suffered thermal shock. This was made with the same 90 COE pixi stix on black for the base and capped with Delphi item U630090 90 COE
