I want to fuse dichro frit ( which I hope I can make) and then cold fuse onto black regular glass, what is the best glue to use just to get it to the kiln?November 2, 2009 at 5:26 pm #11421VernelleParticipant
I go to the dollar store and get the White Rain, pump not aresol, hair spray. Pour a little in a cup and use a tooth pick to put a drop on the bottom edge of the frit as it is setting on your base piece. You will see the liquid seep under the glass. Let dry about 10-15 mintues.

Thanks for that info Paul, appreciate it. How does a gold Ferro ceramic pen work on the center of a plate then covered with clear glass?
instructor here in Tucson said I could use a cheap coffee grinder to make the dichro frit. Anybody ever try thatNovember 7, 2009 at 4:33 pm #11425
I’ve been told to use blue gel Elmers glue, White Rain hair spray and even nail polish ( sally Hanson) to glue the frit and glass chips to the clear glass in order to get to the kiln. Anybody tried these?November 7, 2009 at 6:46 pm #11420LauraJoParticipant
I’ve successfully used regular Elmer’s and clear nail polish as adhesives. Had some trouble keeping the hairspray where I wanted it… and had more overspray than I’d hoped for.
And too much Elmers can leave a whitish glob behind, so be a minimalist if you go that route. Applying with a toothpick helps.
