Want to add a little extra something something to your glass? Maybe some metal or perhaps bubbles? I was playing with bubbles today. Love bubbles. My favorite way to create bubbles in fused glass is to take two pieces of reeded glass and place them face to face, criss crossed and then fuse. Perfect bubbles. Rows and rows of perfect bubbles. But what if you want something more random? Try a bit of baking soda. Some people make a thin paste with baking soda and water, such as Susan Hutsko, or you can try what I did, which was sift it on. Tomorrow I’m going to try a thin paste too. I did let the glass get too hot and had some out of control, giant bubbles. Not good. Ask Mr. Google about it and you can find a few sites with information. And check out what some of them say about metals too…
