This lesson has graciously been given to Incredible Art Department by Delphi. It is here for you to "borrow" - revise to your needs. It can NOT be republished on any web site without permission of Delphi.
Students will 1) learn glass cutting to create a "mosaic look" picture frame; 2) work with color and shape to create abstract designs; and 3) learn fusing and kiln basics.
One sheet of clear glass strips makes twelve frames. One bottle of each of the mosaic frits makes about 12+ frames. Use extra sheets of clear glass to make additional frames. Students can also use fusible glass instead of frit to create their own design.
Refer to Delphiās Instructions for Fusing for detailed instructions.
1. Cut clear glass into strips. For glass cutting directions see Delphi Instructions for Beginning Stained Glass handout or Stained Glass Made Easy video #6149V.
2. On a kiln washed shelf, arrange the clear strips to form a rectangle.
3. Cover the clear glass with random pieces of mosaic frit. It is acceptable to overlap the colors.
