Guidance & Inspiration 

Welcome to the creative gallery

This is to go alongside the fused glass craft kits. If you get stuck at any point or need support, please feel free to 'ask for help' via the contact form at the bottom of the page.

There is no time limit to complete your kit - to make you aware it will take up to two weeks for me to fire and ship your finished pieces back to you. 

Opening the box!

Hopefully, you have managed this as you are here! Make yourself familiar with the contents of your kit. Don't worry about the bunting hooks (if relevant) - I will attach them before firing.

Think about your design

Have a play around with the larger elements before committing with glue - It does not matter which side of the glass you use.

Opal & Confetti glass

Using the confetti (if in your kit) glass as your background layer can provide some lovely effects. Note that some glass is transparent so you can see through it, and the other is opal which will block anything behind it.

Working in layers

Once you are happy with the background layer (if you want one), build up your design using different elements of glass from your kit.

Adding extra glue

Dip what you want to add in glue, either in the lid or using the spatula, or apply glue to the background layer but this can move your original pieces.

Confetti & Stringer glass

If the confetti or stringer is the wrong size you can 'snap' it with your fingers - but be careful as it can fly off. I usually have an envelope or bag to prevent shards from flying off. Don't make your stringers too small as they can be hard to snap without injury!

Heart template kit

Have the heart template under your clear glass - add the glue within the outline. Add your crushed glass and keep it inside the lines. You can use the side of the wooden stick to 'tidy' up the edges.

Clear & Iridescent mix

Included in some kits is a little pot of clear and iridescent mix. Here is an example of the bubble watercolour effect it can create. The iridescent clear has a very subtle metallic finish, reflecting in the light.

Leave for 24 hrs

Please leave your pieces for 24 hours for the glue to be fully set. Make sure to re-stick any details that have come loose.

Please take photos and email them to me with your order number.

Droplet kit

One of my craft kit customers made these lovely flower droplets. Once fired, these kits come with copper beads to help with stringing them up. There is a guidance video on my Instagram story highlights.

Unfired

These are unfired finished bunting pieces made from a kit.

Fired pieces

These are the finished fired pieces. The colours selected in the kit were yellow and orange.
