Clear Bubble Powder

How to make a bubble powder pendant using clear fusing glass and bubble powder.

This fused glass bubble powder pendant is made from two pieces of fusing glass with clear bubble powder between the pieces of glass.

For this project clear bubble powder is used.

Colored bubble powder can be purchased and will fuse the same as clear powder.

Copper oxide powder may be used, it will produce a turquoise finish on clear glass.

It is a very simple fused glass pendant to make and is quite unusual when finished.

You can alter the size of the fusing glass if you wish.

If you don't have bubble powder then baking soda(sodium bicarbonate) or borax can be used. Just follow the bubble powder instructions.

Fusing Materials:

One piece of colored Bullseye glass 1" x 11/4" square.

One piece of clear Bullseye glass 1" x 11/4" square.

Fine clear bubble powder.

Glass cutter.

Warm Glass kiln.

Thin fire paper or kiln washed shelf.


Step 1. Cut fusing glass to size.

Step 2. Wash and dry thoroughly.

Step 3. Place the colored glass piece on a prepared glass kiln shelf and using a small spoon put some bubble powder on the glass, stack the clear piece of glass on top of the powder.

Step 4. Place the shelf into the glass kiln, gradually bring the temperature up to about 1500 F (815 C) and hold for about 20 minutes.

Check to see that bubbles have formed, do not let the kiln overheat as the bubbles may pop through the glass.

Turn the glass fusing kiln off and let the fused glass cool to room temperature.

Step 5. Remove from kiln, roughen up small area on back of fused glass pendant with sand paper.

Use two-part epoxy glue to fix metal bail to rear of pendant.

You may have to experiment with the amount of powder and kiln temperature as the results can sometimes vary.
