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!
These 40 mesh sifters work perfectly for sifting glass powders or enamels. All are made with twisted wire handles.
We also offer two sizes of line sifters, 1/16″ and 1/32″. These can be used to sift a small quantity of powder or enamel into a very specific place (like a gecko’s eye) or to form a line of powder.
Diamond Hand Pads
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.
Silver foil will react with all sulfur/selenium glasses.
Copper leaf also reacts with all sulfur/selenium glasses. Used by itself, copper leaf will leave blue bubbles when fused between two pieces of glass.
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.
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 to prevent scratching during shipping. For best results, please remove this coating (it just peels off!) 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.
