MICA ILLUSION TRANSFERS
Illusions transfers are 3x3 transfers than come in Silver, Champagne and Gold. They are new to the market and we will be introducing them at Stained Glass Express in April. (2018)
Will work on any coe. Not for food bearing surfaces.
The white parts of the stencils is where your glass will show. The color part is actual mica backed with enamel, so it adheres to the glass. Fires at lowest possible. If you fire too high the mica will adhere too much to the glass in the negative areas because the glass is softening.
You don’t have to use dichroic glass for these because the mica is so awesome. You could do it on anything. Clear, dichroic or anything! Experiment. These samples are on black glass. They are hi fire decals. 1250F to 1300F.
Glass MUST BE pre fused. Then add the mica transfer.
Remove the wax carrier
Soak the transfer in distilled water take off the backing and apply to your fired cabochon.
Smooth out air bubbles with paper towel.
Let dry. 3 hours might be enough, but you probably should do over night
