New Press Releases
(Grants Pass, Oregon)--Fire Mountain Gems and Beads®, America's Favorite Beading and Jewelry Supply Company®, is excited to introduce a new line of glass jewelry-making tools and supplies.
This new selection of glass-making tools and supplies is designed for:
- The "stained glass" method of foiling and soldering
- Creating fused glass jewelry and components
- Applying glass enamel "paint" to porcelain beads
Clear round, square and rectangle pre-cut art glass panes are available in three sizes for creating stained glass pendants and components with soldered borders. Add self-adhesive copper foil to the glass, use a horsehair flux brush to apply soldering flux paste or low-fume liquid flux to the foil, then add lead-free solder and finish with the professional hyper-torch. The torch works also as a soldering iron and hot air blower, to ensure permanent and quality soldered bonds.
Microwave Kiln, Glass Pieces, Stringers and Tools:
The convenient microwave kiln fits in standard household microwaves and works with a colorful selection of glass pieces and stringers, available in both opaque and transparent colors as well as clear. Use with glass cutting tools to safely and accurately trim, cut and break these glass supplies. Tools include:
- Wheeled glass nippers
- Running pliers
- Breaker-grozer pliers
- Dry wheel glass cutters with jaw slots
- Self-oiling glass cutter pliers with a pistol grip
Colorful glass frit in medium and coarse grits is also available for glass fusing projects using a paragon kiln. Reusable ceramic slumping molds are compatible with the glass frit and easily form pendants and components in a variety of sizes including teardrops, ovals, rounds, rectangles and bars.
