Glass Paperweights! Made from What?

When I mention glass paperweights I’m sure you’ll have visions of murrini paperweights. That’s not what we’ll be making, but ours are still quite interesting.

In this project video, I’m making two glass paperweights from bottles, using something you probably have in your house right now, for the mould.

So please have a look at the video and give me your opinion on the project and the finished piece.

Project Information

Fused Glass Paperweights

In the YouTube video, you will find links to related videos, a chapter list with time stamps, and links to more resources.

Don’t forget, the glass I normally use is Bullseye 90 COE. I use Thinfire fiber paper on the shelf, but when fire polishing on my shelf, and slumping in moulds, I spray with boron nitride mould release.

All relevant details are in the video.

If you have any questions please ask in the comments section for the YouTube video.
