Those who want to make their own coloring work must know that stained glass supplies and materials can be easily found. Here are the ingredients you need if you decide to produce your glass items.
-Glass is the basic glass material. You should buy a dichroic fused glass that is thin enough to be cut without cracking. Glass is sold in sheets, according to weight and dimensions. This can present several different textures such as smooth or wavy.
-Oxides and salt are needed to create colors when firing artwork into the furnace. For green glass, you have to use copper, while for gold oxide red glass is recommended.
-White glass can help you if the resulting color is too shady. Blow white into a red glass using chopsticks and you will successfully lighten the whole aspect of your design.
-An inflatable pipe is needed when you need to blow up a few white glasses above your design to make it lighter.
-Grozing Iron is very important for cutting glass in various forms according to the stained glass project.
-Lead can be found in various shapes to fit the pieces of glass. Because tin is proven to be very toxic, copper is an ideal substitute.
-Soldering iron is very important when trying to connect copper foil with pieces.
