I was wondering if anyone else has tried the glass fusing bubble powder from www.bluedragonglass.com. I purchased the gold metallic bubble powder and got some really cool effects in my projects... Looks almost like a geode or natural stone. Wondering what others have experienced and how you use it.

I have some bubble powder I tried between two layers of glass and I had some pendants turn out with tiny bubbles and a few come out with huge dome shapped bubbles. Very cool product and I plan to play more with it.

Hi,

I heard the borax powder could be used to make bubbles. I picked up a box but I am not sure where to start!

Welcome Leila! Smiley
Borax powder actually works better than the bubble powder. Use an equal mix of borax and baking soda sprinkled lightly on and capped w/ clear works great. Also a sprinkling of this mix onto clear base and cathedral frits makes it easier for the bubbles to be seen.

Plain baking soda works to make bubbles in torchwork beads.
