    I must have left glue from glass labels on the bottom of a fused glass project because it fused it into the glass and did not burn off. Do you think I can add another layer of glass underneath the project, perhaps a dimensional surface fuse to 1400 degrees to cover my mistake, or should I just cut my losses and break it into small pieces to reuse?

    Not certain I understand. Seems like glue would burn off if it is on the outside of the piece. If it’s on the inside, there wouldn’t be a way to correct it.

    Yes, I was told that glue would burn off. (I thought I had cleaned the glass thoroughly, but obviously I did not!) I think I’ll try fusing a thin sheet of glass onto the bottom of the project where the glue remained. We shall see!

    You could always cold work it off by hand.  There is a book here by Paul that tells you how.

    I have had the same thing happen to me when I don’t pay attention.  The glue stays on and if the piece is next to the kiln shelf it discolors the glass.  I used some pixe dust and mica powders in a random desig and then added a thin piece of glass. This hid it really well.

    Thanks for the advice. In the end I just fused a thin (2mm) piece to the bottom and it workout OK. Now I know to make certain that all of the glue is completely off! Thanks again.
