Shelf paper prevents damage to glass kiln shelves from hot fusing glass during the glass fusing cycle.
It is necessary to ensure that fusing glass does not come into contact with the kiln shelf as it will stick to the shelf as the heat increases in the glass fusing kiln. Using shelf paper is one of the easiest and quickest methods to prevent this happening.
This paper is a ceramic paper that is very thin, specially made to prevent glass sticking to the kiln shelf. Although more expensive to use than kiln wash or normal fiber paper it will produce a somewhat smoother finish than other methods
Fiber paper and kiln wash should not be overlooked as they both are very suitable for many fusing projects.
