This fused glass mica pendant has been etched with Armour Etch cream to highlight the heart design.
When selecting mica powder for glass fusing, care must be taken to ensure that the powder can withstand kiln firing temperatures. Some powders such as PearlEx are not suited for kiln work and will begin to fade at higher temperatures.
Generally any powders intended for cosmetic applications should not be used for glass fusing processes. Suitable powders can be found at many fusing supply stores.
This item is made by painting a mix of powder and A 14 Medium or Klyr-Fire onto a piece of glass and then applying some form of resist to protect the powder from the etching cream. A 14 and Klyr-fire can be obtained from glass supply stores or Thompson enamel.
The etched item is then capped with a piece of clear glass.
