Fusing Frit in a KilnCA4S
If you would like, you can sketch a design onto the kiln paper to help in shaping the frit for fusing.
Put a dusk mask and safety glasses on. Pour glass frit onto the prepared kiln shelf and maneuver the glass into shape.
Place the kiln shelf into the kiln. Program the controller to fire the kiln to your fusing schedule. The kiln paper will disintegrate or degrade in firing. This is normal. Note the difference in size from the fused piece to a copy of the original sketched design.
Note: Each kiln fires differently so it is recommended to test your kiln to establish the correct temperature, hold times and annealing times before embarking on a finished design.
General fusing temperatures and hold times:
