Harvest Moon – Re-purposing a Fused Glass Texture Tile by Dana Worley

Sometimes, things happens. A mold gets dropped, an edge gets knocked against a hard surface, stress occurs during a firing, or a mold arrives broken in shipment. Before you give up and toss out a broken mold or texture tile, think about other ways you can use the pieces that remain: http://jestersbaubles.blogspot.com/2015/08/harvest-moon-repurposing-fused-glass.html

Dana Worley’s Koi Platter Tutorial

Recently I created a koi platter using paints from Unique Glass Color (UGC) and a Creative Paradise texture tile. I planned to create a short tutorial, so I took pictures of the process along the way. Today I received a few questions about the process, so it’s time to write a blog post: http://jestersbaubles.blogspot.com/2015/08/fused-glass-koi-platter.html

Dana Worley’s blog on Glass Powders

Fused Glass PowdersI follow a couple of fused glass forums, and it seems that the projects people make and the topics discussed come in waves. Several months ago, it was fused glass puddles. Then came pot melts, followed by “flow” pieces. One of the latest hot topics is the crackle technique, which involves using finely ground glass powder (powdered frit) sifted down on fiber paper, moistened, and then manipulated to produce cracks in the powder.
