A suggestion by a lovely customer of red, mauve and pink came out a lot, lot better than I was hoping! I’m really pleased with this mix. The 96 Hi Fire Pink is a spectacular colour – it really pops with the deep reds! Unfortunately I was pretty unoriginal with the naming… but hey. It’s pink and red. Valentine seemed the obvious choice!
What you get:
40+ usable chips in a little tin. Every chip will be between 5.5 and 7mm and will show the designs pictured when fused (first picture). You will not get teeny tiny chips or chips with minimal/no design.
The chips are made from System 96 glass, constructed by hand (not in a vitrigraph kiln) and hand-pulled by me in my workshop. The chips are designed to be used in fusing, and vary in size between 5 and 7mm diameter and 3-6mm high. They can be used on top of two sheets of 3mm fusing glass to add that special something to your fused glass pieces. They work really well when used as eyes or flowers.
You will receive a tin containing at least 14 grams of murrine, at least 40 chips. These will be a random mix of the four designs. The chips are hand-cut with care to ensure the sides are as straight as possible, and then ultrasonically cleaned to minimise production dust and grease and improve the final fused result.
As with all handmade items, small variations are to be expected.
*A note on compatibility*
Checking for compatibility is especially important when using flame worked elements in kiln forming. This is because the flameworking stage exposes the glass to temperatures outside the usual kiln forming range. This can, on occasion, cause the glass to become incompatible. I take compatibility very seriously, and every item I sell for use in glass fusing has been tested for compatibility using the Polaroid film test; full fused above two layers of 3mm icicle clear. However, if you are planning on using the murrini differently to this, you should conduct your own compatibility test.
