We’re in love with Bullseye's Tint Overlay Palette!

Bullseye Glass Quick Tip:

Have you ever watched the show "Say Yes to the Dress"... well, that how much you are going to be in love with this new Tint Overlay Palette from Bullseye Glass! And, it is so easy!

For a semi-matte finish and crisp seams, simply design with a base layer of tint glass and cap with an opalescent style. To keep the finish, slump with the shelf-side facing up and work with molds that require relatively little heatwork.

Hake brush hack

We love Bullseye Glass Blog Posts and this one is genius!

Connect a full size/standard brush (5.5″) to a short section of another brush (they’re perforated or maybe you already have a broken one) with hot glue & duct tape. Voila! Having a variety of widths in the studio is handy for different applications. Just make sure that the wide one still fits in your primer bucket!

Google Reviews

Trying to stay up-to-date with social media can be a daunting task. So, today we are asking for a little help from our friends. If you have purchased a kiln or, had a positive interaction with Kiln Frog, we are reaching out to ask if you could give us a review on ‘Google +’. We appreciate it can be time consuming but, it would be a great bonus to us.

Many thanks!

Drilling Small Holes in Jewelry

Bullseye Glass Quick Tip:

While teaching jewelry workshops, we get this question a lot... "What is the most effective way to drill a small hole in my pendant?" It seems like a simple question but it can cause a lot of stress to both the student, and the glass.

This Quick Tip shows you how to do in three easy to follow steps.

In our studio, we generally make at least 8 holes in 4-6 mm thick fused glass before changing to a new bit. With use, you’ll notice that a drill bit doesn't work as effectively. If a piece breaks while drilling, this may indicate that it's time to replace a bit.
