Using Old Fused Glass Again

Have you ever heard the saying "Everything old new again"? Well, this article explains the same theory about dichroic fused glass. First a bit of background, fused glass is the joining of two or more panes of glass COE compatible.

There are plenty of tutorials on how to integrate the glass so I'm not going to focus on aspects of fused glass. However, most of the tutorial does not discuss what to do to say no chunks or pieces of plain perfect. That's what I want to discuss in this article.

Fused will return to Old is New Again concept; glass can be fired several times. Therefore, if you make a mistake with a piece of fused glass not just throw it away or give up on the experiment to make something new out of it.

When I first kiln me one of the pieces I was not right but it has beautiful colors including purple, blue, and clear glass that I just do not want to waste. So instead of disappointed that it has not changed the way I want, I got a hammer, and both need to say I made some wonderful pieces of jewelry from my "mistakes".

But it does not stop there when referring to create new fused glass pieces blend of old. I am a simple person and when I started my fuse does not include a lot of decals or designs or dichroic glass in my pieces.
