Product Information
3mm 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 (next to the product information) 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.

What is Curious glass? 

'Curious' glass is glass that has not reached the target colour, includes imperfections or is experimental.  It is still Bullseye compatible, CoE90. Available at a discount, this glass will only be around for a limited time so don't miss out.

This Glass gives consistent results with its reactions. I love using it with turquoise coarse frit. However, I find it harder to cut than most other colours. But worth the extra effort,
