Making a fusing glass pendant decorated with a clear epoxy coated decal. This item has two pieces of fusing glass, a decal designed for polymer clay and clear resin.
It is fused using contour fusing temperatures so as to produce an item with softly rounded edges to which the transfer is applied.
Due to the transparency of the decal it must be applied to a light colored base such as white. You can experiment with this as some colors may enhance the transfer colors.
A dark colored base is generally not suitable as all the transfer details will be lost in the dark color. As a contrast you can fuse a dark color to a light color layer and apply the transfer to the light colored surface.
Two white layers have been used in this item.
For decoration a polymer clay water slide design has been used, unlike glass fusing decals these cannot be fired in a kiln. There are a large variety of sheets available. For this project a Lisa Pavelka Signature Series decals was used.
The pendant is finally coated with clear epoxy coating for protection and to give it a high gloss finish
