Project Wrap Up

Once your project is fused, you can slump it any way you would like!

When slumping iridized projects, keep in mind these two important facts from the beginning of this tutorial:

  • An iridized surface on glass doesn’t stretch. If you slump an iridized piece of glass into a deep mold, the irid will likely take on a crackled appearance.
  • Iridized glass reflects heat differently from non-iridized glass. This can make iridized projects more likely to thermal-shock. Conservative firing schedules for iridized projects heat and cool more slowly below 1000° F (538°).
