Well, a little while ago we purchased ourselves a little microwave kiln set from Fuseworks. It contains a wonderful assortment of glass and all the things you need to get started in glass fusing. And i must say .... its addictive!!!
My favourite is the dichroic glass. Dichroic glass contains multiple micro-layers of metals or oxides which give the glass a beautiful metallic shimmer. It is available in more colours/patterns than you can imagine! While the kit comes with a small selection of dichroic glass, I ended up ordering some more from dichroic-glass.com.au as i plan to feature it heavily in my pieces.
Glass work is a little bit trial and error and in the first few days of playing, i've had a few of both... exhibit A
This pendant will be finished and headed to the shop very soon!
