I love geometry, so I couldn't resist this icosahedron ornament. Looking around for materials to make it, I remembered this stash of round aluminium foil peel-off lids from milk cans. Some folding and hot glue was all it took. The diameter of each circle is about ten centimeters, so the ornament is somewhat too big for the christmas tree, but it looks good hanging on its own, kind of like a flowery satellite. I could fill it with candies... Thanks for this instructable, it was great fun playing around with triangles!

Thank you so much, Danny!
Dorlis, the microwave you use with the kiln CANNOT be used for cooking, EVER AGAIN. I bought a new one for the kitchen and use the old one, in the garage, with the kiln. You can buy the kiln at Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Fuseworks-FW849-Beginners-M...When you buy the kiln, you also have to buy kiln ceramic paper, to protect the kiln from the molten glass.
Danny, what about mixing materials like glass and brick, or glass and sand, or glass and stone, would that work or explode?
I have also been playing around with a microwave kiln, and it's great fun! I use it for fusing sea glass to make sun catchers. After about ten minutes on high, I open the microwave door and just leave the kiln in there for one hour. Then I take it out and place it on a ceramic surface, still closed. One more hour before I open it. This way, I don't have to wear gloves.

I cut a slit on the inside of the glove index finger tip, and when I want to type I slide my finger tip out of the glove.
