Making Your Dichroic Pendants

  1. Sketch your design
  2. Cut at least two 3ml pieces of glass for each pendant
  3. The Dichroic glass may be placed in between or on top of your layers of glass.
  4. Wash and dry thoroughly using soapy water or methylated spirits to remove oil and fingerprints.
  5. Fire at 790c for 24 to 36 hours for a fully fused finish.
  6. If your pendant requires grinding back after the first firing, you can fire-polish the edges at 630c for another 24 hours.
  7. Only remove glass pieces after your kiln has completely cooled.
