Okay, so I'm loving this whole fused glass thing. However, I'm starting to wonder if maybe i should *always* use kilnfire to cement my pieces together, because I fear that there was some degree of drifting this time... Lessons learned!

I did successfully fuse a piece of fine silver into one piece to use as a bail, which was also exciting.

Yay for kilns! Yay for fused glass!

thanks, yall... im putting bails on some of them to use as jewelry, but others i may use as adornment on a bag or something... the big yellow one i think im going to try to fuse down into a bigger piece. I think it looks sort of like a a ham and celery omlet before its been cooked. amusing, but not so attractive for the wearing around the house.

I love the funky shifty look of some of them, too, but i was trying to make the green ones into cufflinks, so i wanted them to *not* shift so that I could have them be identical. Will definitely use the sticky stuff for that next time.

Great colors! Are you saying that are sliding when you fire?

You can use a little tiny bit of Elmers glue to keep them in place. Use a tooth pick to apply.

Looks great- fusing is so fun!

That is exactly what I was going to say....use a bit of elmer's glue. The only problem I had with that was being patient enough to let it dry before I moved my pieces!  Wink

LOVE IT!  <3

Beautiful color combinations!


It appears, when I look at these cabs, that they *all* shifted, and that tells me that perhaps your kiln isn't level.

After botching about 3 batches of yummy glass candy, I checked my kiln and guess what??? Crooked!

So.  Check your kiln!
