Fused Glass e-book – Transparency

For March I’m focusing on fused glass e-book studios is Helios. As I mentioned in my last blog, they have 17 e-books albeit, I’ll be focusing on 12 e-books that I’ve purchased and love.

The seventh fused glass e-book I want to talk about is his fused glass “transparency”e-book. Normally I change up fused glass techniques but this one I didn’t. When I first got this e-book I did one but you couldn’t even see the difference i.e. transparency.  This one I kept the same as Paul’s instructions.







I love the colors but the red isn’t as transparent as I expected. It’s still beautiful. The first picture is before the coldworking, the second picture is after coldworking, basically I cut off the edges to make it smooth and sandblasted it.  Can you see the outline of the colors? Very cool.







I fire polished it but won’t be able to slump it right away. When I do slump it I know it will be wonderful.
