About Us



1. Carefully cut the following:
One 3” x 3” standard thickness black irid
One 3” x 3” standard thickness clear
One 6” x 6” standard thickness clear
Four 1/5” x 4 ” transparent red or other complimentary color.

 2.  Select a pattern to etch onto the black irid piece of glass. Simple broad patterns work best. Oriental symbols are ideal. Many are available in the form of a stencil. Free handed patterns can also be used. Transfer the selected pattern to the irid side of the black glass using a Sharpee pen. 

3. Wearing a mask, use the engraver to carefully follow the outline of the pattern on the glass. You will need to engrave thoroughly the areas inside the outline to assure a solid pattern after firing. Using a towel and alcohol remove the glass dust and any remaining ink.

4. Place the etched piece of glass, iridized side up in the center of the 6” clear square. Place the 4 ” x ” glass around the iridized piece of glass. Using a small dot of glue, glue these pieces into place. If desired, place decorative elements of coordinating stringer or glass pieces on the solid glass border.

5. Fire the glass at 300 degrees per hour to 1150 - hold 15 minutes, then 9999 to 1470 degrees and hold until completely fused (approximately 15 minutes).  Hold the kiln at 960 degrees (anneal the glass) an hour. Allow the kiln to cool  to room temperature before opening.   

6. Apply and set kiln wash or glass separator according to the manufacturers written instructions to Creative Paradise 6” square slump mold GM02.  

7. Place the fused 6” x 6” square of glass centered directly on the slump mold.  Place the mold and the glass in the center of the kiln. Fire at 300 degrees per hour to 1250 and hold for 15-20 minutes or until slumped.  Hold the glass at 960 degrees while cooling for an hour.  Allow the kiln to cool to room temperature before opening.
