Modelling Glass Powder Binder and Liquid Medium Starter Kits and Refills
MODELLING GLASS Refills
Modeling Glass is a new product that has been in development for several years by Lois Manno, Glass Bird Studios. It's a unique two-part kit consisting of a powdered binder and liquid medium that artists combine with water and their own powdered glass or frit. The resulting material has the consistency of clay, is smooth and easy to work with. It won't stick to your hands or tools. The binder and liquid medium are food-grade and non-toxic.
You can work with Modeling Glass in many of the same ways you would work with clay: roll into coils, roll into a flat sheet and cut out shapes, or press into silicone molds. Modeling Glass holds its shape without freezing. 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 colors to make your own blends.
Before firing, dry Modeling 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. It can be used with either COE 90 or 96 glass, and at full-fuse temperatures, colors remain true.
Each set of refills kit makes over 6 pounds of Modeling Glass and comes with complete instructions for mixing, use, storage, and a suggested basic firing schedule. Modeling Glass is easy to use and gives artists a whole new way to work with hand-sculpted shapes!
The refill bottle contains twice as much product as the Starter Kits, so is a cost effective voice if you were thinking of purchasing 2 Starter kits, but you need to purchase both the binder AND the liquid medium.. the start kit contains both.
