Step 1: Choose a glass base. This is when you decide the size and color of your project’s base sheet of glass. During this step you will also be deciding on what your end project is going to be. For example: 3″ x 3″ or 4″ x 4″ can be a coaster or a night light.
Step 2: Design your pattern. This is where your design starts to come together. We offer over 25 different glass colors. Pick from a large selection of colored glass strips, frit, stringers, dots, tips and tails of crushed glass. Our helpful staff is on hand to show you how to get started with nipping and break glass to create your own fused glass project.
Step 3: Leave it, we will fuse it. We will melt (fuse) your pieces together in our kiln.
Step 4: Put on the finishing touches. We have several options that can be added to your glass to turn it into a functional item. Before it is fired, we can add a hook so it will be permanent. After your piece has been fired, we can add bumps and turn it into a trivet or coaster. We can glue on a nightlight bracket to turn it into a nightlight. We can also fire your item one more time on top of a ceramic mold and give it a shape like a plate or candle votive.
