Product Description

A sheet of clear glass is coated with glue and slowly baked until the glue peels off. As it pulls away, it chips the surface of the glass, creating a texture similar to frost on a window pane. Glue chip glass is great for backgrounds, and will compliment beveled glass beautifully.

Clear textured glass, sometimes called architectural glass, can add incredible depth and beauty to your home. Textures, ranging from subtle to dramatic, add privacy, movement, and create ambiance in designs like nothing else. Most commonly used in cabinets and entryways, clear textures can be used to add dazzling appeal to panels, sun catchers and more! Use alone or in combination with other textures and colors to create a stunning piece of glass art.

Flower panel project is from "Kitchen: Cabinets, Windows & Tile" book #6200. Tulip panel project created by Artist: Kathy Carroll. Round flower panel by artist Janelle Kerns from Delphi's Online Artist Gallery. Snowflake project from "Magic of Snowflakes II" book #6800. Oval flower pannel by artist Sarah Formwalt, from Delphi's Online Artist Gallery. Rectangle bevel panel from "Beveled Glass For Your Home" book #5977.

Pros : I purchased two large pieces since I use this all the time for backgrounds. The pieces had a beautiful variation from very dense to less dense.
Cons : None
Other Thoughts : Was concerned that single glue chip might be too clear, but that is not the case.

Sometimes necessity is the mother of invention, and sometimes invention comes when you have nothing to lose. Early in my career, I had three metal-clay-and-fused-glass pendants fail in a single day. The glass cabochons simply shattered and fell away from the silver after the pieces were fired because I had neglected to cut an expansion hole underneath the cabochons. Augghh. Lesson learned. But now I was left with three ugly pieces of silver, each with small pieces of glass permanently fused into bizarre locations on the surfacea loss I could not afford. Weeks later, after tryingunsuccessfully to remove the glass, I decided to try fusing glass in patterns onto the surface of the pendants. The results were surprising, and the Stained Glass process was born This technique begins with any fired metal clay with a flat surface. Small shards of fusible glass are then attached to the silver.

To celebrate the end of the year for Boy Scout Den 41 in Tampa, Florida, the kids had a Mosaic in the Park party. Using stained glass chips nipped into triangles, each boy made a mosaic picture frame for his mom for Mothers Day. The boys wrote personal messages to their mothers on the back of the frames. Their troop leader grouted the frames, and each child had a hand-made mosaic project for Mothers Day. The kids loved making them, and the moms loved the frames. This is a very easy project. It requires no glass cutting by the kids, and no previous mosaic experience. Time saving tips 1. Draw a border around the edges of the frame and instruct the children not to go past the line - this allows room for grouting the edge. 2. Nip chips into triangles, and nip 1/2 of those triangles into smaller triangles.
