Painting on Bullseye glass

Postby brookemont » Tue Feb 09, 2010 8:05 am

Hi- I'm trying to do a series of work that will look like fabric and plan on using bullseye glass, fuse it into the shape I want and then apply low fire enamels from Reusche and fire again.
Do anyone knows what product I can use for gold color? Reusche doesn't carry any low fire gold or silver colors that I can apply. Thanks!

I have used a Ferro gold pen with great results. If you google it there are a lot of places that carry them.

lowfire enamels don't like fusing temperatures, and will fade or disappear.

I prefer using onglaze china paints. I use the Ferro Sunshine series. These mature between 1380 and 1520ºF. I always prefire them before covering them with a sheet of glass.
