OVERGLAZE
Overglazes prevent devitrification - that "scummy" look on the surface of the glass after firing. Use overglazes to cure pieces that have devitrified or that need a bit more gloss. Sunshine stocks overglazes from Hot Line and Fuse Master.

HOT LINE SPRAY A PLUS prevents devitrification. Spray "A" Plus is a low melting point clear glass, ground to a micron fine powder. This powder is held in suspension and is sprayed or brushed on your project before firing. Use the inexpensive Badger Air Brush to apply an even coat.
New, lead free formulation.
Use on glasses you know are sensitive to devitrification or can be used to put gloss on dull or matte surfaces. Can even be used to shine up items that have already devitrified.
Fire to 1300F

Sold in 8oz bottles (#0240)  $21.98

FUSE MASTER SUPER SPRAY is a 99.98% lead free overglaze. Use on all your kiln-fused projects. Fire to 1250F for a satin, matte surface. Fire to 1300 to 1700F for a shiny surface. Will not discolor reds, yellows, oranges or other sensitive colors. Can be used on iridized and dichroic glass. Use Badger Air Brush for best results, but can also be brushed on. Sold in 8 oz and 32 oz bottles

CLEAR COAT OVERGLAZE is the best and safest overglaze. It does not contain any lead or glass powders, only a natural fluxing agent that produces a durable glossy shine on the surface of your fired glass. Completely safe to use on food bearing surfaces. Ideal for use on types of glass including clear window glass. To apply, just brush or spray a light coat onto the top surface of the glass being fused.

Fire to 1350 to 1550F.

LOW TEMPERATURE OVERGLAZES mature a much lower temperatures than standard overglazes. This allows the glass to gloss over nicely before the kiln reaches fusing temperatures. Use as with any other overglaze. NOTE: not for food bearing surfaces.

BENDING GLAZE matures at 1100F. Quite often the glass you would use to slump replacement lamp panels will devitrify along the cut edges. Paint a light coat on the edges before slumping/draping. If the glass is sensitive and may devitrify on the face of the panel, air brush the surface before firing.

Sold in 4 oz bottles (#0236)  $14.98  

FUSERS GLUES

FUSERS GLUE holds your work together as you assemble the pieces of glass prior to setting in the kiln. Use just a small drop. Some people will apply with a toothpick. By Hotline

4 oz bottle with flip up spout (#02455) $6.98

SQUEEGEE OIL is used to hold fine frit in place when you are preparing a piece for fusing. Also used with enamels.  Burns off at relatively low temperatures without leaving a residue. Can be applied with a good quality brush on or silk screened for repeated designs.

Sold in 8oz bottle (#0244)  $23.98

HANDY TOOLS AND FUSING ACCESSORIES

HOTLINE STRESS TESTER (#02541) can be used with nearly any light source (typically a battery powered flashlight) to give an indication of stress when testing glass for compatibility. Includes diffusing lens, two polarized lenses and instructions (flash light shown is NOT included).
Polarized film is held in a 4x4in cardstock frame with a 2x2in aperture

Hotline Stress Tester (#02541) $21.98

KILN SAFETY GLASSES are a must when looking into a hot kiln. The specially coated shade 3 green lenses filter the infra-red and ultra-violet light that makes up the "glow". Reduces glare, and allows you to see your project more clearly. Protects your eyes from heat as well.

HAIK BRUSHES are used to apply kiln wash to kiln shelves, molds, etc. Sold in two widths. The very popular 2-3/4" wide brush (shown at left) is handy for coating shelves for table top kilns or to kiln wash smaller slumping molds. The double size 5" brush is the best choice for larger kiln shelves or molds.

FABRICUT is used to remove used shelf primer from shelves and molds. The open weave construction does not clog, flexible to follow curvy contours of slumping molds. Special grit size is not too coarse, not too fine. By Hot Line.

Sold in 9x11" sheets (#0251) $7.49

FUSING WIRE is a special ni-chrome alloy that we have selected for best result when firing in a kiln. This alloy will darken less than other alloys when fired.

The heavier 18 gauge wire is often used to provide hanging loops on fused panels. The lighter 22 gauge wire (also known as "stamen wire") will add finer details (ie. flower stamens) in fused projects and is often used as hanging loops for fused jewelry.

Both gauges are sold in 36", 20 ft and 1 lb spools. There are approximately 200 ft of 18 gauge and 500 ft of 22 gauge per pound.

FIRING GRAPHS allow you to keep careful records when fusing. You need good records for reproducible results. Arranged to get the info you need without a lot of figuring.

Pack of 25 sheets (#0256) $3.64
