Fusing glass interior

Fusing glass - one of the most popular and original techniques create stained glass. Based on this method of sintering the glass at high temperatures in special furnaces.This technology avoids the presence of metal compounds in the stained glass products, which directly improves the appearance of the decorative items.At the heart of fusing it is one of the oldest techniques of glass processing - machinery hot enamel.

In recent years, the use in the manufacture of glass fusing stained glass began to take on a mass character.This is because such a method of working the glass opens new, previously unavailable features.Its main advantage - the ability to create complex multi-layered product.Thus all the properties of the glass and color are maintained.

Due to the chemical properties of glass, glass fusing technique is perfectly suited for the production of stained-glass windows and decor items.Solid glass at a temperature of 800 degrees is converted into liquid.Then comes the stage of formation, when it is given the required shape.Despite its apparent simplicity, this method has a lot of nuances and it is quite difficult to perform.

main difference fusing technology from conventional stained glass is that in this case, for a bunch of metal profiles are not used, as it allows future product purchase extremely aesthetic appearance, complete mosaic woven together multi-colored glasses.With the help of fusing pieces of glass fused together and are fantastic compositions.

Fusing glass

glass fusing technology includes five basic steps.Each of them is important, as it directly affects the quality and appearance of the future product.

  1. Preparation of material to work - heating the glass.The heating temperature may be from 650 ° to 920 °.This difference in temperature is due to the type of the procedure.Heated from room temperature to the melting temperature of the glass changes not only the shape but also the color.Reaching the required temperature, it becomes red and yellow and is completely ready to hang over the process.This means that at this stage the edge of the glass pieces are touching and their fusion begins.The temperature at which the full fusing - 800 ° C.
  2. The following stage of longing, or, in other words, the shutter speed.When glass is heated to the maximum temperature for a time to remain unchanged.On how this step will be carried out in good faith, it depends on how flat and smooth to be treated fragment.
  3. future product is then quenched.At this stage, the product temperature is reduced to a point slightly above the annealing temperature.The quenching is required in order to keep the resulting red.If this step is performed with a delay - the glass again acquires its natural white color, and then start to blacken.
  4. fourth stage - the stage of annealing.This process is necessary to relieve tension - that is, taking the desired shape, the glass retains its strength.
  5. final stage - the cooling step.It usually takes place at room temperature, naturally.

styles or Fusing

Today there are three main, the most common style of glass fusing.In order to fabricate complex interesting compositions of glass-fusing technique using reformer.It is through these techniques produced the highest quality and valuable products.

«Bending" or formation - the original method by which it is possible to shape the previously fused glass.For this purpose already fused workpiece is again subjected to heating, and then attach the required shape.

«Polishing the fire."This technique is used in the event that the product should be given additional smoothness and gloss.To achieve this effect, it is placed in a glass furnace.

«combined carding" technique is based on the formation of the shape of the product with the help of tools.Pre-heated blank of fused glass is processed manually, using professional tools.

Application fusing the decor

list of products for the decoration of which is used fusing glass, it is quite wide.First place in popularity take the stained glass windows, made using this technique.But fusing can decorate almost any product - for example, a mirror, a painting or a decorative metal box.Attractive looks and the input or interior doors with glass inserts on the fusing and closets finished fusing doors, windows, shower stalls, and so on.Application of fusing the interior is possible in every possible detail - this technique will adorn himself in any style room.

Also this technology allows you to create unique multi-layer glass windowsand products with a complex relief structure - details of the interior and decor, decorations, dishes.So, quite original produced decorative plates with elements fusing, vases, wall panels, framing table lamps and other decorative items.

Using fusing glass significantly expands the possibilities of working with color - the fusion of individual parts of different colors allows to achieve unique color.

It should be noted that the widespread use and popularity of glass fusing technology has won not only because of their aesthetic qualities.In addition to the noble appearance, such products are also practical.Stained glass made using this method, not afraid of moisture, temperature changes and extremely easy to care for.These qualities have made relatively new popular technique.Products made with it, in a short time became fashionable and popular.
