Product Information

Dichroic - With its rich colour this light reflecting texture is spectacular and perfect for jewellery creations as the textural surface will be maintained when fused with other Dichroic colours, even at high temperatures. An alternative to Fipple Rainbow 2 for those who want a consistent colour which still allows stunning results. Also available on black and with a variety of coatings. Yellow/Violet is a very thin colour and works best on a dark background.

Quarter Sheet Sizing: Quarter sheets of textured dichroic glass are a quarter of a circle with a small section of the curved edge removed. The area of a textured quarter sheet is around 440 sq cm, which is about the same area as 4.4 10x10cm sheets. Sometimes the textured dichroics come without the edge missing, in which case the area will be about 450 sq cm. See the Dichroic Glass FAQ pdf for more information.

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.

I have tried other Fipple textures and absolutely loved them, but this one is difficult. Comes out as clear/translucent after firing, with fine ridges. Very little colour. Almost invisible on dark colours. When used with the coated side up, it looks muddy. Best use so far is layered coated side down over plain coloured dichroic, when it gives an interesting texture.
