Could you just clarify, all the examples are single colour that are shown except the one that you demonstrated right? Its just your orange transparent looks a lot more red than I have noticed when using it?
And does it work to getting a bright red that doesn't fire so dark? I love 1122 but it always seems so dark when I use the sheet with a clear cap to full fuse...

Colors can look different on different monitors. We list the styles used in the video in the Learn More document (in the tab over the video).

We make many shades of red and orange, so if Orange (000125) is too reddish for you, then use the Tangerine (000025), which is a warmer, yellower orange.

If you use our Color Picker, you can see all the similar colors together to compare:

How large are the clear base sheets? The narrator says it requires about six cups of powder, but nothing about the area of the piece of glass it will cover. Thanks.

Thank you!

Hi all,

We will work on getting those cycles into the Learn More document. Meanwhile, here are screen captures of all three cycles in Fahrenheit:
1: fusing powder to sheet
2: fusing glass flat tile
3: slumping
