More Slurry Glass Powder Painting

More custom fused glass made with aloe vera gel and water and glass powders. Each color is mixed in a squeeze bottle with 1/3 water, 1/3 aloe vera gel and 1/3 glass powder. Shake well and squeeze unto clear glass or opaque white glass. Move and push the colors around until you like the design. I then thoroughly dry the piece in my convection oven for 20 to 30 minutes at 225 degrees and then I full fuse in the kiln.

After full fusing I decided to drape this piece over a stainless steel mold. The photo below shows the finised piece.

This is such a fun economical way to create you own designer glass by just using clear glass and powders. Just make sure you use the powders safely and wear a mask or respirator when mixing up the powders.
