One of the great things about fused glass is how many ways you can get to what you want to accomplish. Here’s a link to a great site, which gives a technique I’m dying to work with for double shelf fusing. That way you can accomplish fusing glass which is less than 1/4″ thick. It’s from Diann Schwerdtfeger’s technique on double shelf fusing millefiori http://www.hgtv.com/crafting/bite-sized-bowls/index.html, to state the obvious, and bring a not so professional approach to this, why wouldn’t you simply glue the edges of the little petals together? Anyway, whatever you decide to do, I’d LOVE to see a picture of the finished product!
