Fused Glass Photo Frames - Class Projects
These frames were made from left over pieces of glass that were fused together in the glass kiln. They fused at Ra 2 (in glass kiln) and the glass is coefficient of 90. The kids help me cut strips of the glass the size of the acrylic frames. We used Elmer's glue to hold items in place securely and put on kiln shelf that had been prepared with kiln wash.
Once the pieces were fused together, we took them out of kiln and used E6000 glue that was purchased at Wal-Mart to glue on the glass to the acrylic frames. The frames can be any size. They are inexpensive usually found at Wal-mart, Target, CVS or Walgreens. We used the 5x7 size frames.
This project gives a great end result!
