Made with Spectrum and Uroboros glass, using special techniques to minimize heatwork and preserve compatibility with COE 96 glasses.
Three sizes available:
- 12" cane: one cane, 12 inches long, 4 to 7 mm in diameter, consistent from end to end (less than 1mm variation in diameter for any single piece). Great for any project, they can be cut to just the right size.
- Shorts: 12 sections of cane, 2.5 inches long.
- Samples: 3 sections of cane, 2 inches long.
Samples and shorts may vary a bit more in diameter and twist frequency. These are great for smaller projects, or if you need a variety of thicknesses. Also, torchworkers can quickly heat and pull the cane thinner. Attach a mandrell or glass rod to each end and you are ready make thin twisties.
How To Use:
You can get a variety of fusing results by setting up your base glass differently. Try these techniques and others to find out what you like best:
- 1. 6mm flat base (two layers of 3mm sheet). Place cane on top and full fuse.
- 2. 3mm base. Place cane on top with 6mm glass rod sections filling the spaces between. Full fuse.
- 3. Use sheet glass strips instead of 6mm rod to fill the space between canes. Full Fuse.
- 4. Single 3mm sheet base. Place the cane on top and full fuse.
