One of each 16 BubbleART Colors (1 oz./25 grams size) and 2 – 2 oz. of GM300 Glass Medium.
- BubbleART is a fired glass color that are non-toxic colors that are in a powder formula that is mixed with our GM300 Glass Medium. Mix equal parts or can be used thinner. Keep mixed up as the color tends to settle to the bottom.
- These 16 colors are translucent/transparent colors that were designed to be fused between two layers of glass to create bubbles.
- Available in 1 oz. (25 gram), 2 oz., 4 oz. and Pints.
- These colors are design or artist dependent, meaning that where you put your design you can control the bubbles. If you use a liner brush and place lines on the glass and leave spaces between them you will get lines of bubbles. Solid areas will be all over bubbles. You can place dots of color and these will be small collections of bubbles.
- BubbleART can also be used on top of the glass. You will get a textured look and feel. Some colors will be transparent and others will be opaque when used on top of the glass. Some of these effects are technique dependent. You can add more GM300 Glass Medium to change the consistency and your application which can change the color intensity. They are not food safe if applied on the top surface.
- Shake jar before mixing powdered colors with glass medium. These colors are much more gritty than the G series glass color line. The gritty stuff will create intense color if you dont want that you can pick it off the wet color before it dries.
- The heavier the color is put on the darker it will be. The thinner it is put on the lighter in color it will be.
- When using float glass (window) you tend to get larger bubbles. The float glass can be fired between 1425-1550 F.
- When using 90 or 96 COE you will get smaller bubbles. The 90/96 COE glass, when fired to 1485 F, tends to shrink in but the bubbles are a little larger than a firing of 1450 F. 96 COE glass fired to 1420-1450 F is a nice fuse.
- The hotter these are fired the larger the bubbles are. Each kiln is different and tests should be done before starting a large project.
- You can brush on GM-300 Glass Medium on the bottom piece of glass and then with palette knife sprinkle on some of the dry powders. Cap with clear or transparent glass and you will get individual bubbles where the colors are. Fired to 1420-1450 F or Full fuse.
