Tutorial for Fused Glass Plate — #3

Fused Glass Plate

For this Fused Glass Plate, step #3 involves cutting two pieces of Spectrum 96 White glass for the border on each side of the clear strip with the stringers.  Each strip of white glass is 5 1/4″ by 12.”

Tutorial for Fused Glass Plate — #2

The second step for this Fused Glass Plate is to cut off the edges of the strip from Step #1 and grind off a couple of points.   Sometimes this step won’t be necessary, if the glass cuts perfectly 🙂

This piece of glass needs to be perfectly straight, since it fits in-between the two white pieces of glass.

Tutorial for a Fused Glass Plate — Step #1

Tutorial for a Fused Glass Plate

I thought I would take you through the steps of making a Fused Glass Plate.  I will be making a Fused Glass Plate that is 12″ by 12″ and I will be slumping it into a Slumper Mold.

This first step I cut a piece of 96 Clear glass 12″ by 2″ and added stringers every 1/4.”  I fused the stringers to the clear glass.  I made the clear glass a little larger than I wanted for the Fused Glass Plate, so I could cut the edges off and make a nice clean edge.  I want the clear strip to be 1 1/2″ wide.

Step #2 will be next time.  Unfortunately, this will be going backwards, but I’m sure you will be able to figure it out 🙂

Fused Glass Coasters

Fused Glass Coasters

I made a similar fused glass coaster about a year ago.  I only made one, but I had always wanted to make more.  I also want to make a fused glass plate like these coasters.

A customer wanted four of these fused glass coasters for her mother.  So, I made four glass coasters for her.  She really loved them!

I am in the process of making four more fused glass coasters and a 12″ square fused glass plate that looks the same as these glass coasters.  I will keep you updated as to my progress.

Fused Glass Spoon Rest

Fused Glass Spoon Rest

Someone saw a Fused Glass Spoon Rest similar to this one on one of my past blog posting.  She said she just loved it and wanted one for herself.  I made two more fused glass spoon rests with the two fishies.

The two fishies for the Custom Order Fused Glass Spoon Rest were a dark blue glass with white eyes.  The two fishies for the second fused glass spoon rest (the one in the picture above) were an iridized dark blue glass with white eyes.  The white eyes didn’t fuse into the iridized glass — they only tack fused, so you can feel the eyes.  It was a nice surprise.

I put this fused glass spoon rest on my website.

Fused Black Glass Coasters

Black Glass Coasters

These Fused Black Glass Coasters are similar to my last post of Fused Red Glass Coasters.  I fused black glass to the clear iridized crackle texture glass instead of the red glass.

Notice how different the crackle texture glass is between the red and the black picture.  Also, each fused black glass coaster is different from each other.
