Sloth003, Thanks!  Dichroic glass is a specially treated glass with laser imprinted designs.  It is particularly shiny and takes on many different colors depending on the light.

A tack fuse is when you layer the glass and fire it just under 1420 degrees, give or take, so that the glass pieces fuse together, but they retain most of their original shape aside from a l itlte bit of slumping and rounding of the edges..

Thanks for the very first THIS ROCKS, I appreciate it!
