Product Information
2mm CBS Dichroic Sheet Glass - Silver on thin clear. 

A pure bright silver in reflection, this stunning dichroic will not disappoint! This glass works beautifully as an overlay with Dichroic patterns and textures on black.

The light waves which pass through the glass form the transmitted colour; the remaining light forms the reflected colour.

Also available on black.

Note: The un-fired colour of this sheet may not look silver. The silver colour appears when hot-worked. We recommend test firing a small sample to verify colour prior to use.

Quarter Sheet Sizing: Quarter sheets of Dichroic glass are a quarter of a circle. The area of a quarter sheet is around 450 sq cm, which is about the same area as 4.5 10x10cm sheets.

About Dichroic Glass: Dichroic is a multi-layer coating placed on glass using a technical process known as thin film coating. Dichroic glass has a transmitted colour and a completely different reflective colour; these two colours shift depending on the angle of view. The play of light together with its vibrant colour makes dichroic glass a prime tool to add interest to any kiln glass work. CBS have been manufacturing this product longer than anyone in the business and their dichroic glass is Bullseye compatible and of consistently high quality.

A note about dichroic on clear glass: Dichroic coating on clear glass produces a subtle effect that many artists find appealing. It is difficult to photograph so please be aware that your glass will be essentially clear, with a subtle mix of the transmitted and reflected colours shown in the main image. If you prefer to make the dichroic colours stand out more, simply layer it up with darker glass styles or choose dichroic on black.

All our glass is COE90, Bullseye Glass compatible and suitable for warm glass applications such as glass fusing, glass casting and glass slumping (unless otherwise stated in the description).

I love this dichroic as beads from it almost look like pearls. It works with so many other colours and is more versatile than silver on black, I think.

I use this colour under other trans. colours to ensure the colours show against other background (such as a pendant, when worn against the skin). Shows the colours beautifully and add a little sparkle :)

Everyone should have some of this colour! After firing it keeps its colour so well, it's great capped or not.
