Product Information

Want complete control over your dichroic? Now you can put the eye-catching sparkle of dichroic exactly where you want it. You can even paint with it!

Dichroic Extract is a powder form of pure dichroic coating. When mixed with water, Glastac glue or Liquid Stringer it can be painted onto glass to create a piece that is truly unique to you.

This pot contains 1/8th sheet of Emerald Dichroic Extract powder.

Renowned glass artist Bob Leatherbarrow uses dichroic extract to add subtle blue shimmer to his fish wafers, which are then inset into a bowl (see second product photo).

Try using it to bring out the pattern in Bullseye's textured glasses, such as Herringbone. It is also fantastic for in-filling etched or sandblasted patterns.

Compatible with all glass types.

Less is more!!! Using Dichroic Extract sparingly creates a better result than using large amounts. A tiny amount goes a very long way. If mixing with water, any excess can be allowed to evaporate off to leave the extract ready to use another time.

Dichroic Extract can be used between layers or on top, but please be aware that if you use it on top of the glass some of the extract will rub off. Experiment with sprinkling a fine layer of clear powder over the top before firing to reduce this.

Gorgeous and will make your project more eye-catching. I was fortunate enough with other students to get a chance to use this on a recent course at Warm Glass. Luckily, bearing in mind how little this pot is, a tiny bit goes a very long way. Pat on to your piece with a damp cocktail stick. Needs to be dusted with a light coating of crystal clear powder otherwise some of it will wash of your fused piece. (Much like uncapped mica does.) I would have given it 5* instead of 4 if it wasn't quite so expensive.
