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 Silver 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.

Dichroic Extract elephant Sample

Fire using our basic Bullseye firing schedules (see the PDF link). For tack fusing, try the following schedule:

Rate/Hr Temp Hold
222C 677C 0:30
333C 704C 0:10
999C 482C 2:00
83C 371C End

Please note: This is a premium colour so is generally a slightly larger grain than other extract colours. This make is appear as if there is more in the pot, but all our dichroic extracts are the equivalent of 1/8th sheet of dichroic coating.

I love this product. I found it very easy and exciting to use. Less is definitely more. This colour is perfect for highlighting area's and brilliant for jewellery making.
The item arrived very quickly and I've found the information with it and on the website very easy to follow and useful.
Very good product
