Learn About Glass Fusing Technology And Its Supplies

Glass fusing is a technique in which thin layers of glass are usually layered on top of each other and colors are used to create different patterns. This is known as stacking. This stack is then placed in an electric kiln and heated. Eventually, the fragments are bonded and the temperature is rapidly reduced to avoid delamination.

The bonded part is then allowed to cool over time until it reaches the proper temperature, which is essential for the annealing process. This is done so that uneven cooling does not occur and there is no damage to the product.
