How to make a low fire decal art glass pendant fired in a glass fusing kiln. The base layers are first first fully fused with softly rounded edges, then an image is applied and the pendant is re-fired at a lower temperature.
Low fire transparencies are fired at below fusing temperature to prevent the image burning away as no clear cap is applied to the pendant.
These decals come in black and white and colored versions, many of the decals used on ceramics are suitable for glass fusing. It can be a matter of trialling different brands to ensure they do not burn during the firing process.
Due to the transparency of the image, it must be applied to a light colored surface such as white. You can experiment with this as some colors may enhance the image colors.
Dark colors are generally not suitable as some of the image details will be lost in the dark background.
This pendant has a black base fused to a white upper layer.
