glue residue left on glass
- December 13, 2011 at 10:09 pm #9723
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?December 15, 2011 at 3:56 am #12338wordanaParticipant
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!December 17, 2011 at 11:26 pm #12340Stephen RichardParticipantJanuary 28, 2012 at 6:29 pm #12341josthingsParticipant
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.January 29, 2012 at 3:50 am #12342
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.
