LET’S GET STARTED
1. PRINT OUT TEMPLATE PROVIDED WITH THIS TUTORIAL.
2. TRACE THE LEAF SHAPE ONTO THE GREEN, RED, AND YELLOW GLASS WITH A PERMANENT MARKER.
3. USING YOUR GLASS CUTTER, SCORE A LINE TRACING THE DESIGN ONTO THE GLASS. USE YOUR RUNNING PLIERS TO BREAK SHAPE FREE. MAKE SURE YOU ARE WEARING YOUR SAFETY GLASS WHILE CUTTING GLASS.
4. OPEN YOUR FUSEWORKS CRAFT KILN AND PLACE KILN PAPER ONTO THE BASE. THEN PLACE A PIECE OF 3.25 X 2.5 INCH CLEAR GLASS ONTO CENTER OF KILN PAPER.
5. ARRANGE THE GLASS LEAVES CUTOUTS ALONG THE TOP EDGE OF THE CLEAR FUSIBLE GLASS. OVERLAP THE ENDS OF THE LEAF ONE AFTER THE OTHER. THEN PLACE THE SMALLER 2 X 1.25 INCH PIECE OF CLEAR GLASS IN THE CENTER.
6. PLACE PIECES OF FRIT AROUND ANY OPEN SPACE YOU CAN FIND. THIS IS A GREAT WAY TO ADD TEXTURE AND A FESTIVE TOUCH. THEN CUT PIECES OF GLASS STRINGERS TO MAKE THE LEAF CREASES.
7. WITH SMALL DABS OF GLUE ARRANGE THE STRINGER PIECES ONTO THE LEAVES AND THEN LET THE GLUE DRY FOR 30 MIN.
8. AFTER GLUE IS DRY IT IS TIME TO FUSE. PLUG IN YOUR CRAFT KILN AND TURN DIAL TO 12 MINS FOR A NICE CONTOUR FUSE. IF YOU WANT A TACK FUSE TURN THE DIAL TO 10MINS.
9. AFTER IT IS DONE FUSING, LET IT SIT IN KILN FOR 2 HOURS OR UNTIL KILN IS COOL TO THE TOUCH. MAKE SURE YOU ARE WEARING YOUR HOT MITTS BEFORE REMOVING.
10. AFTER YOUR PIECE IS COOLED, WRITE NAME IN THE CENTER WITH PERMANENT BLACK MARKER. YOU CAN USE ACETONE WITH A PAPER TOWEL TO REMOVE WRITING AND USE AGAIN NEXT YEAR.
