I am working on some pendants that need to have an “S” in the center. I have been mixing Liquid Stringer Medium from www.fusionheadquarters.com with 96 cobalt blue glass powder. I am making the mixture fairly thick, so I can shape the glass into an “S.” I am trying different sizes of the “S,” since the glass tends to shrink when it is fired. I need to have a certain size “S,” because I already made a couple of the pendants where the “S” will go, so I need a certain size.
I also made a red heart using a thick mixture of the Liquid Stringer Medium and 96 Cherry Red Glass Powder.
I will let those dry overnight and see what I get tomorrow. I am thinking of firing these right on the kiln shelf, rather than on a piece of glass. I will see what size they come out to be and decide if I want to fuse any of them on the glass pendants. The heart will probably be fused to some glass to be made into a glass pendant.
