Product Information
Bullseye Thinfire Shelf Paper. Also known as kiln paper.

For the smoothest finish on the bottom of your kiln-fired glass projects, Thinfire Paper is an excellent separator between the kiln shelf and your glass.

Thinfire Paper helps to achieve a perfect firing every time. Many find it quicker and easier to use than shelf primer.

Good for one use only.

Vacuum residual dust after firing wearing a mask - please see the safety data sheet pdf.

We recommend using a FFP3 Dust Mask when using this product, and cleaning up using a vacuum with a HEPA filter.

Instruction sheet is included.

Every glass studio should have some!

Such a useful staple item in my studio. I primarily make cabs for jewellery so use the paper in small amounts. Easy to cut so there's very little wastage and I get a consistently smooth surface on the cabs.

Up until recently, I have bought the pre-cut sheets of this fire paper, but I've always had to trim it to size leaving lots of strips of paper. Yes - I can use it for smaller projects, but i prefer covering the whole kiln shelf. Then I bought some by the roll. MUCH better - my kiln shelf is 1/3 of the width of the roll - NO waste pieces! If you can - buy it by the roll - in the long run it is much more economical!

As a newcomer to glass fusing I have found this ideal for my use. I also used up all off cuts making a jigsaw pattern, creating 3 extra circles from each sheet ( 28 in all) from 1 sheet. As a pensioner I need to look after the pennies. Thank you for your prompt delivery service, plus free on

I've only ever used this thinfire paper, never kiln wash, and I like this paper a lot.

Pros: very easy and fast to use, perfect results for most uses.
Cons: not cheap, produces dusty cloudy effect on the grinded edges (I work with Moretti, but I've seen in different forums that it does with Bullsey too), so if you see this effect you should use primer.

Love this paper. It makes a beautifully smooth surface and is so easy to cut to size for any kiln shelf size.

This is an item I could not do without! I have always used thin fire on my kiln shelf. It's easy to use, gives a smooth finish and does the job I want it to do. Always remember to wear a mask when hoovering it out of the kiln.

Not cheap but does an excellent job. Leaves a smoother finish than other cheaper kiln papers. Multiple layers can be used for finer contours than 1mm fibre. Experiment with a few shaped scraps between layers of glass as an inclusion.

This certainly quicker and easier than shelf primer. But not as economic. It rarely sticks to the glass and gives a smooth though dull finish.
Being me I save all offcuts to use in strips when firing smaller pieces. Make sure you don't have an overlap under your glass or you'll get a ridge! BUT you can also make texture by cutting strips or shapes and placing under your glass - make sure they are the right side up though.
Effect is subtle and doesn't disappear during slumping.
