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 Black Opal glass, ideal for creating layered art. Standard 3mm thick glass offers affordable luxury for your fusing projects. Compatible with System 96 glass. 96 COE.

Wissmach glass often has rounded corners as shown in additional images. Glass pieces may include factory rolled edges.

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.
