Livin’ on the Edge Project
This on-edge technique involves cutting & arranging strips of Bullseye Streaky or Collage Glass on edge, fusing together & finally slumping into a mold for a finished piece.
Cut Your Glass Into Strips
Cut your chosen glass into 3/8” strips
using a strip-cutter & Running Pliers.
Clean each piece with an ammonia-free
Safety Tip: Be careful not to cut yourself
when cleaning the strips, as they easily
tear through towels.
Arrange the Strips on Edge into Your Chosen Design
Set the strips on edge, creating the desired pattern or design.
Once you are pleased with your design, dam the edges
using 1/4 “ strips of Fiber-Frax & kiln posts situated on their
sides on the kiln shelf.
Design Tip: Try using a single piece of Bullseye Streaky or Collage for this project. Keep the strips in order as you cut them to emphasize the original pattern of the glass. You can also mix & match for a more randomized effect.
