Glass Clay

Before firing

Merryl's glass after firing
My friend Merryl Snowden bought some Glass Clay and kindly let me try it with her. Its basically powdered  glass mixed with a binder, when fired in a kiln the binder burns away (similar to the metal clay) and the glass is fused together.
I wasn't that impressed with the clay, the colours changed dramatically when fired and the glass looked lumpy like sugar.
