Product Information
2mm (Thin) Bullseye Sheet Glass - French Vanilla - Reactive glass!

A light colour which has some remarkable reactive effects and is always a great background colour. Come and experiment!

Contains:

Sulphur

May react with:

Copper, Lead, Silver

Put the wonderful reactive powers of this glass to use.  Take a look at the 'Riot of Effects' pdf (from the link on this page) for inspiration on using this glass. This image, from our 'Reactive Inclusions' class, shows the interesting effect caused by the dark interface reaction between French Vanilla and silver foil:

Check out our 'How To...' guides for more information on using this and other Bullseye glass products in your work!

Cold characteristics: 

Consistent colour.

Working notes: 

A sulphur glass. May react with gold-bearing lead (1311, 1411, 0301, 0305) and copper (1116, 1408, 1417, 0144, 0145, 0146) glasses to create dark interface (lead sulphide, copper sulphide). Very viscous; will flow later and less than other glasses. Generally more sensitive to heat-history and more likely to show variation in colour after fusing than many opals. When fired on edge, a clear distinction between outside and interior surfaces is commonly seen (a variation used by designers). This glass may become increasingly white with repeated firings. Consider using glass from the same batch for a given project.

Love this reactive glass. Great to be able to try a different technique with it.

I fuse my glass on a bed of builders plaster. this allows me to add fine, one off textures to my jewellery. But, when I fire the vanilla with silver or fiber frax it is throwing up bronze, or at lower temps it looks burnt.. A commission I had recently ended up like fossils and stone like. love it
