Tutorial for Fused Glass Plate — Step #8

Fused Glass Plate

Step #8:  Your fused glass plate isn’t quite finished like I said it was going to be in Step #7.  Right now, you have a flat piece of glass.  I forgot you still need to slump this fused glass plate into a plate mold.  Just a minor detail  😉

The above picture shows the fused glass plate after it was fire polished during Step #7.

In Step #1, I told you I would be slumping mine into a 12″ by 12″ Slumper Mold.  After cleaning the glass very well, put it on the mold you have chosen.

The following is my firing schedule for a slump:

400  750  15

600  1250  15

9999  960  1.30

150  700  0.01

See Step #5 for more information about my firing schedules: https://glassart.wordpress.com/2009/06/04/tutorial-for-fused-glass-plate-step-5/.

This will be the final firing for your fused glass plate.  Let me know how yours turned out!
