Step 2: Load Kiln

In this step, great care should be taken to ensure that the glass is properly spaced and clean.

Step 3: Fire the Kiln

The kiln is fired to 1575 degrees at which point the two glass pieces should be fused.
*This requires a separate instructable of firing schedules of temperatures depending on the type of glass, the thickness, desired result, as well as the kink of kiln you are working with.

gorgeous! I love fused glass. I really like the clear ones with leaves. I don't have the big bucks for the gigantic kiln. Someday I will make a parabolic solar kiln and maybe that could work.

Thanks. I have found that fused glass is a very versatile material to work with. The clear glass pieces you commented on have copper wire (inclusions) in them. The wire is outlining the leaves. A solar kiln sounds very cool. Let me know if that works.
