5. FUSED FUNKY FISH PROJECT
using 2mm glass

Draw a simple shape fish, something easy to cut in smaller pieces.
   
Use the drawing as your template. 
Cut all the pieces out in 2mm glass for the base and again in 2mm clear for capping.

Stick the parts together on kiln fire paper and decorate your fish. Stick the clear capping bits on. 
Add any decoration to want to the top. Full fuse.

These are a couple of others...fusing rounds everything off nicely!


4. FUSED GLASS CAT LOVER PROJECT
using patterned metallic inclusions and 3mm glass
Cats are 22mm - 24mm tall, hearts are 26mm

Cut base glass for your pieces, leaving a few mm space all around the layout. 
Cut a clear capping layer a few mm larger than the base layer. 
I've used Spectrum Teal glass and Bullseye black glass for the finished tiles shown. 
Use a compatible clear capping layer with your base.

Moisten or lick your finger, wipe a little moisture on the base glass. 

  

Press the cats and hearts onto the moistened glass. Pat with tissue and let it dry.
Place the capping layer on top and full fuse.

Dragonflies are 12mm tall

Cut base glass for your dragonflies, leaving a few mm space all around the layout. 
Cut a clear capping layer a few mm larger than the base layer. 
I've used Spectrum Adventurine and teal glass with clear Spectrum to cap them.

Moisten or lick your finger, wipe a little moisture on the base glass. 

 
  

Press the dragonflies onto the moistened glass. Pat down with tissue and let it dry.
Place the capping layer on top and full fuse.

 

2. FUSED GLASS TREE OF LIFE
using silver inclusion material, 3mm glass and medium grade frit. 
This tree is 9cm tall

Cut base glass for your tree, leaving about 1cm space all around the inclusion. 
Cut a clear capping layer a few mm larger than the base layer. 
I've used clear glass for both layers but if you look at the last photo, 
you'll get an idea what it would look like on coloured backgrounds.


Moisten or lick your finger, wipe a little moisture on the base glass. 

     
Press the tree onto the moistened glass. Pat with tissue, let it dry. Place the capping layer on top.
Then put some frit on top of the capping layer. Full fuse.
