Faux Stone with Frit

About 'Faux Stone'...

For some time now, Karen Tarlow has been creating work based on fused glass that looks like stone - real and imagined.

Sharing information is what we are all about on FusedGlass.Org and at Karen & Paul's fused glass teaching studio in Austin, so here are recipes for 16 of Karen's favorite frit/stone variations.

The recipes are based on Bullseye compatible glass because that's what we use. Each recipe makes 1 pound of frit - but can obviously be adjusted for the desired quantity. And, of course, computer screen colors can (and usually do) vary signficantly so test before whipping up a huge batch.

How to Use These Recipes
  • Mix in a closed jar to avoid breathing in glass dust. It is recommended that you wear a mask.
  • Pile mixture about 1/2" deep to get a 1/4" sheet of faux stone glass.
  • Smooth out the top as much as possible.
  • Use a full fuse schedule with a 20 minute hold at the fusing temperature for a smooth surface.

Faux Stone ?

How are you achieving a consistent size when making tiles?

Thanks

Bubbles

What do you do about air bubbles?  Seems like you would capture a lot.

 

Frit maker

I made a batch that looks like granet by mistake. Using a new frit maker. The paint from the frit maker (WHY do the paint the inside) came off in my frit and I could not get it all out. I fired the frit anyway. I would love to see a tutoral on frit makers- it's a great way to use scraps and make frit in a jam if you don't have the correct color.

Wonderful site, thanks very much
