    I am relatively new to fused glass and have been making some pendants and coasters.  I often have a base layer and then, particularly for the coasters, a 2nd patterned layer of multiple colors & shapes.  Is it necessary to put a 3rd layer of clear on top?  I know the magic thickness is 6mm but much of my glass is 3mm so with the two colored layers, I am already at 6mm.   If I DO add a 3rd clear layer to bring the total to 9mm….is that too thick?

    You do not have to add a clear layer as long as you have the 6 mm thickness.   A third layer of clear adds depth to the look and is a matter of perference.  I haven’t found that it is too heavy.
