Making Fused Glass Reaction Test Samples

Fused Glass Reaction Samples

When it comes to glass fusing, testing techniques are part of the process. If you’re trying something new, or just want to check how something will look, it’s always preferable that you perform a test. Glass fusing reactions are one of those things where you need to understand what happens in order to design a project.

The video tutorial will show how I make some reaction test strips, using mainly opal glass. It will show you the colours I use, the final reactions, and my observations.
