This is so cool! Here’s a tutorial on how to do a wire mesh melt. The result is awesome and a great way to utilize scrap glass to get interesting pieces that can later be turned into tiles, bowls, jewelry…the possibilities are endless! The tutorial is provided by the kind folks at Clearwater Glass Studio. I’ve mentioned them before regarding a tutorial on how to make pattern bars.
The glass is stacked on metal wire mesh and when heated it flows down and pools to form patterns that are truly one of a kind. I’m always looking for ways to make things that are unique and this is perfect. I want to cut the finished glass up and use the pieces for tiles in my bathroom. What would you do with your wire mesh melt?
