Table Top Cutter

This is the cutter we developed and use in our own studio. The cutter greatly simplifies the process of cutting strips. You can score multiple strips at once, then break them, saving time and minimizing broken strips. It’s so simple, someone who doesn’t know how to cut strips can be cutting successfully in less that five minutes!

Our table top strip cutter comes already assembled with the supports, steel bar, cutter head, mounting screws, and zero center ruler. The cutting head is a standard Toyo head that can easily be replaced when needed (ours lasts for 2 to 3 years). We provide everything but the table and the person to screw it in place.

Your cutter can be configured with the head on the right or left of the bar. Optimized for 3mm (1/8″) thick glass. Price includes free shipping to all U.S. locations.

Add to Cart

Diamond hand pads are ideal for smoothing the edges of your glass.

To use, start with a coarse pad and use until the edges of the piece are uniformly smooth. Then switch to the medium grits — 100, then 200 — and make the piece even smoother. Continuing with a 400 grit will leave you with a finish that will fire polish beautifully. A 600 grit finish leaves a beautiful smooth matte finish that doesn’t require fire polishing. For best results, use with water.

You can also use the 400 pad to smooth small needles and minor imperfections from the edges of your fused glass.

Polarized Film

Polarized film is used to see hidden stress inside of glass.

It helps you determine if your glass is likely to crack due to incompatibility or improper annealing.

Information about how to used polarized film is located at this page.

Polarized film
Two pieces, each 4" square
$13.95
Add to Cart

Our polarized film is laminated on both sides so it is thicker and won’t roll up like cheaper films.

It also comes covered with a transparent protective coating on each side.  For best results, please remove this coating (it just peels off!), which helps prevent scratching during shipment, before using the polarized film.

Photo Transfer (Decal) Paper

Photo Transfer Paper (also called Decal Paper) is used to create fusible decals from laser-printed artwork.

Either photographs or drawings can be used.  Black and white artwork works best.

To use the paper you will need a laser printer that uses a black carbon-based toner cartridge.

Binders

A binder is a liquid that is mixed with enamels to create paint of the desired consistency. We recommend and use A-14, which is a water miscible medium that is non-toxic and cleans up with water.  If you prefer an oil-based medium, we also sell Squeegee Oil.

Our Choice

A-14 is non-toxic and cleans up with water.  It works well for many applications, including painting and screen printing.

A-14 also works well for mixing with mica or similar products.

A-14 can be mixed with powdered enamels, then stored in an airtight container for a long time (even years).  To reconstitute, scrape enamels out onto your palette, remix and then, if needed, add a couple drops of A-14.

For best results, do not thin or mix A-14 with water.  Use water only for cleanup afterwards.

Klyr-fire
8 ounces / $5.99
Add to Cart

Klyr-fire, squeegee oil, and A-13 are  other mediums that can be used with enamels.

Klyr-fire is not recommended for mixing with enamels for painting, but can be used as a fusing glue, mixed with micas, or in airbrushing.

Squeegee oil works well with enamels, but must be cleaned up with mineral spirits.

A-13 is an acrylic medium that is a bit thinner than A-14. It works well for screen printing enamels.
