Product Description

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.

See examples of this unique glass combined with Peacock Green, as well as the limited edition Reactive Copper Opal in the additional images. Don't forget to download the free tip sheets for details to help get the most out of this exciting glass.

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.

When and how did you get started in stained glass? Ive been interested in stained glass for as long as I can remember. As a child, I would sit in churches and watch the (often) biblical depictions come to life when a stray ray of sunlight cast its illumination our way. Sun shadows dancing. I dabbled in many media over the years, trying to find an outlet for some of the visions careening inside, but none of them took. Drawing, painting - even watercolours - no amount of professional training could guide my hand in a satisfactory way. But then there was the glass. I lived abroad for a few years, and wound my way through Europe on my way back to the States when I finished my Peace Corps Service. My last international destination was Paris, where one of my closest friends lives as an organist. Two beautiful autumn

Chances are, right now, in reading this blog post, youre avoiding an overdue task. I too was avoiding a laundry list of work-related tasks in writing this. Procrastination is a part of life, and its certainly always been a part of mine. As a teenager, my parents would accuse me of putting off everything from piano practice to math homework. Id vehemently deny their charges hissing back, I work better under pressure. The truth was, I often felt overwhelmed, under-productive and anxious. Over the years, Ive been able to combat my avoidance issues using 4 tools. The trick is constantly reminding myself of these actions, because they do not come naturally to me. 1. Just Say No. I say yes to everything. Need someone to head up that event? Sure. Want me to design 12 posters for the Car Wash? No problem. Take your kid to daycare? Of course.
