Adhesives for textured Dichroic

#10950

Glassy,

Be real careful with the type of glues you use on the glass.  Sometimes you can get a hazy effect, even with the blue gel glue from Elmers.  I use only Glastac.  Another suggestion is to use individual frit pieces to help support your clear cap.  Another suggestion is to fuse the dichro to smooth it out then clear cap.  If I am making small earrings I usually do not clear cap.

Another suggestion is to make up a tile of the glass, being careful to initiate a bubble squeeze then use a tile saw to cut the piece up to size polish with your grinder and then fire polish.  A 600 grinder head is best for a clear edge on you pieces unless you have a lap grinder.

Good Luck!
