Use glass painting with glass enamel to decorate fused art glass jewelry pieces.
Glass fusing painting and decoration for glass jewelry can be carried out in a number of ways
The use of lead free opaque and transparent enamel powders is one of the major techniques in use today.
The colors can be mixed which means an extremely wide palette of colors is available.
They are not enamels in the normal sense but finely ground glass particles with a low melting point, which after being applied are fired in a glass kiln so that the enamel is fused to the jewelry piece.
Paints come as low-fire or hi-fire powders, the firing temperature between the different types and brands can vary so you need to check the makers firing temperatures.
Glass bead makers can roll their hot beads through enamel powder and pickup up a color layer.
Enamel powder can be combined with a water based medium and mixed with frit or glass powder and packed into pate de verre molds and then fired.
