We Also Recommend for PAPYROS Paper:
Product Information
PAPYROS Kiln Shelf Paper is a ceramic based paper specially formulated for glass fusing.

When placed between the kiln shelf and the underside of a glass project, PAPYROS prevents the glass from sticking to the shelf during firing.  Because of its sturdy composition, PAPYROS provides excellent glass/kiln shelf separation on the first use, and frequently even in subsequent firings.  

Key Features:

  • Less mess, does not decompose completely into dust -'fold over' the expired sheet using a studio dedicated spatula and dispose of or vacuum using HEPA vacuum.
  • One firing but can often yield multiple firings depending on the project.  Please see FAQ on advice for firings.
  • Available either as a 76m x 1.04m roll, 10m x 1.04m roll or a pack of 10 sheets (52x52cm)


  • Wear gloves when handling
  • Wear dusk mask - we recommend FFP3 Dust Mask  
  • Wear safety goggles

I've been using papyros for a couple of years now, it's not cheap but often I can re fire again even after large splashbacks have been created- if I remove them carefully. The biggest advantage for me over thinfire is the folding up of the product when it's totally used up rather than vacuuming every time and clogging up filters endlessly, it's a great product and leaves a lovely smooth finish.

I have found papyrus paper to be quite economical, especially as it can be reused for multiple firings. However, If i am firing opaque glass as the base layer I have found that papyrus paper sticks really badly and so can't be reused, so for this I prefer to use thinfire paper.

I have been really impressed with papyros shelf paper. I have been able to reuse sheets multiple times, you just need to be careful when removing items from the kiln. I leaves a lovely smooth texture to the underside of the glass.

Tried papyros kin shelf paper instead of the thinfire paper I have used over the last 3 years, although it was more expensive. I had to refire the glass items on thinfire paper as the glass edges / base felt 'rough' and not as smooth as normal. will not use this product again. The remainder 9 sheets are destined for the bin, unless I can return them to warm glass for exchange / refund.

Although this is a huge expense, I think that it is worth it because of the possible multiple use and the safety and cleanliness. There are no puffs of old fibre wafting over work as you try to reuse paper and it has to be better for health for any one who finds a cumbersome mask too often remains unused.

I've Used this for few years now as well as bullseye thin fire but i do prefer papyros of the two as you can do numerous refires if careful not to disturb it... Would definitely recommend Well worth giving it a go ....

This is a good product and lasts far longer on the kiln shelf than Thinfire.
