Fused Glass Textured

How to make fused glass textured plate painted with glass powder and slumped in a glass fusing kiln.

This fused plate has been made from two pieces of glass, one of which has been painted with colored powder frit and then fused on a flat textured mold.

After fusing on the textured mold then plate is then slumped in a suitable curved mold.

You can use either COE 90 or COE 96; Coe 90 was used for this tutorial.
