Product Information

Modelling Glass transforms powdered glass into a firm, non-stick material similar to clay that can be hand-sculpted to create unique glass pieces without needing the use of moulds or freezing techniques.

Work with Modelling Glass in many of the same ways you would work with clay – roll into coils, roll into flat sheets and cut out shapes or press into silicone moulds. When fired to tack-fuse temperatures it will hold an amazing amount of textural detail. It can be thinned with water and used to create beautiful palette-knife textures. Combine colours to make your own blends.

Before firing, dry Modelling Glass shapes can be sanded, carved, and otherwise modified, virtually eliminating the need for extensive cold working after firing.

During firing, the binder and medium will burn away, and do not affect the compatibility of the glass. Even at full-fuse temperatures, colours remain true.

The Modelling Glass Starter Kit includes:

  • 100g (3.5 oz.) Jar of Powdered Binder
  • 60ml (2 fl. oz.) Bottle of Liquid Medium
  • Easy to follow instructions

The Modelling glass comes with full instructions and firing schedule. The the schedule is:

Rate - Temp - Hold

167°c/hr – 690°c – 10min

999°c/hr – 482°c – 1:00hr

56°c/hr – 371°c – 0

Each kit makes over 3 pounds of modelling glass and is compatible with all CoE90 glass. The unique formula contains non-toxic, food-grade ingredients.

Please note: You must combine the ingredients in the order described in the instructions to ensure correct results.

A special note about working with white: The best white is achieved using Bullseye Opaque White 0013.08. A much longer hold and a slightly higher temp matures the white much better. The slightly higher temp of 718°c with a 1 hour hold is the right approach. If you are after the super-white look, then try making the hold even longer. Loss of detail in the texture is minimal even at 718°c.

Brilliant product, I have loved using modelling glass, it has enabled me to make decorations from glass that I would never have been able to without it, completely hooked now.

Max Otto

Great product. Very versatile and easy to use.

I made small circles with holes in them using round coockie cutters.

Something I would be unable to do without this product.

Please note that using transparent powder needs a different firing schedule.

This is amazing! the instructions and video are really clear and easy to follow. I was really successful with my first attempt, which is a bonus. It is just like using a kid's dough. i used two strips of 3mm tekta to rest the rolling pin on to get an even thickness. It is possible to cut round a template or scribe directly onto the surface, dry out the pieces on a baking tray in the kiln, you can then add details or smooth the edges. When firing added details will be lost if you fire above a tack fuse. The instructions warn about shrinking, I found this was more pronounced when a cut was made into the shape. I love this product the possiblities are endless.
