There are two great reasons to melt glass through a screen. First it
uses up your scrap glass for a great purpose. Second, it creates unique,
intricate patterns that cannot be created any other way! Take your failed
pieces of glass cuts and make them into something successful and spectacular!
make it so easy to create a wonderful, amazing works of art. There
is no limit to the design you can create. All you need is a kiln,
one of these screen melt systems and lots of scrap glass. The
glass drips through the heavy gauge, stainless steel screen and as it becomes molten and
drips to the bottom, it reforms into a new piece of glass that can
be slumped into a mold in future firings.
For best results, put
1/8" Rigid Ceramic Fiber Paper in the
square or circular area where the glass drips into. Makes it
easier to remove it from the kiln. Each system comes with 4 3"
stainless steel posts and 4 5" stainless steel posts. Max height
the system stands is 5.5" plus however tall your piles of glass becomes.
