1. Cut a piece of fiber paper big enough for the entire kiln carving (inside the black line) I prefer to have some extra so I can tack down the fiber and pattern together. There are handy black dots for tack placement.
2. Carefully cut out the gray area’s of the pattern, making sure you cut through the pattern AND the fiber paper. I prefer to use a brand new X-acto knife blade for each pattern as the fiber paper quickly dulls the edge.
3. Cut around the heavy black border after you have removed all of the gray area’s.
4. Cut a piece of glass large enough to cover the entire cut pattern. I’m using float glass for this project. Fire to a full fuse.
After you’ve finished fusing the glass, consider slumping it into a little dish for hold jewelry or soap. I’m sure your mom would love one!
