|Stained Glass • Fusing • Mosaics • Jewelry Supplies|
|1.||All glass has a coefficient of expansion, or COE. Glass made specifically for fusing is often "tested compatible," or guaranteed to be a certain COE (usually 90 or 96). Use the same COE glass in a project, or else it could break apart after firing!|
|Use sheet glass, frit, confetti noodles or other types of glass to create different effects.|
|2.||Once you have the glass, you'll need a kiln. Already have a kiln? Great, get double the use out of it! Don't have a kiln? Delphi has a huge selection of kilns and accessories. The proper kiln for you will depend on what size project you want to make, and your voltage and space limitations.|
|3.||Accessories expand the range of fusing effects, and some are very simple to use. Molds and shelf paper are two of the easiest to use.|
Delphi's Kit Manager,
made this butterfly
by tack fusing frit
(just enough melting
to the the glass
to stick together).
This frame was made using fusing
and copper foil stained glass techniques.
|Delphi Expert George Ayars
made these great sunbrust tiles
by cutting his design in shelf paper
and fusing the glass on it to create
these dynamic impressions!
