Introducing Scarab our new line of paint for glass.
We believe you will love our line of paints for glass fusers. They are designed to mature between 1250 and 1400 degrees. These paints can be used on top of a pre-fused piece of glass or on a piece that will be capped with clear glass. If capped, most colors can withstand the low end of full-fuse temperatures.
Our experience has taught us that all kilns need to be tested to find how their firing temperatures compare to the kilns that were used in tutorials. For our tests, we borrowed the idea from Creative Paradise Glass. We cut four 1 inch squares of standard-thick clear glass, one piece of 1.5 inch by 1.0 inch standard-thick black glass, and one piece of 1.0 inch by 0.5 inch standard-thick yellow opal glass for our test fire. We stacked the four pieces of clear glass and separately centered the piece of yellow glass on the piece of black glass, which left 1/4 inch of the black glass showing all around the yellow glass. We then fired to the following schedule:
|Step||Rate||Temp (F)||Hold (mins)|
* For large projects be sure to use appropriate anneal hold times
After firing, the stacked 1.0 inch pieces of clear glass had reduced in thickness to 0.3675 inches and spread to 1.345 inches square. The black and yellow stack had reduced in thickness to 0.2355 inches and reduced in length and width to 1.46 inches by 0.948 inches. By test firing, you can find how the temperature in Step 4 needs to be adjusted to achieve similar results.
This is the full fuse schedule we use when painting on a standard-thickness layer of glass and capping it with a standard-thickness layer of clear glass.
I will add images to each product as I am able to get new pieces, with less brush marks, made to photograph.
We are still in the process of testing new colors
