Firing Instructions & Helpful Tips

Our etched glass should be cut on the non-etched (back) side.  It may be cut on the etched side if it has been fired etched side down on the kiln shelf to ~1350 degrees first. 

Dichroic or Iridescent Etched Glass
- May be clear capped or uncapped.
- Fire etched side down for a matte finish.
- Fire etched side up for a glossy finish.  This is dependant upon the top temperature reached.  A fire polishing temperature for your kiln will result in a beautifully glossy finish.

Luminescent Etched Glass
- Do not cap with clear.
- Must be fired ETCHED SIDE DOWN ON FIBER PAPER or on a powdered fiber kiln shelf for first full fuse or the coating will burn off.
- May be fired again, etched side up, to less than 1400 degrees.

 

**Remember that every kiln is different, so the temperatures given are for reference purposes only.
