Papryos is suitable for different COEs and appears to work well with glass from different makers.

Re-using Papryos

By carefully lifting the fused object from the kiln shelf without damaging the paper, Papyros can quite often be used for multiple firings.

 It has been found that transparent glasses yield the best results in re-using Papyros, however opal glasses are more likely to pull up the paper.

 Project’s design, along with the firing schedule in use can also determine how many firings can be obtained from a single piece, for instance lower temperature firings.

 Tack fuse schedules can quite often produce better results than full fuse schedules due to expansion or contraction.

If there is a tear or hole in the sheet, then you will need to use anew sheet for your next project as you would normally do with other paper brands.
