Float Glass or Bottle Glass sheet
Print out of PDF Jack O’Lantern pattern sized to fit desired glass
Prepared mold to fit desired glass
Glass Etching Cream
Cut a piece of fiber paper large enough to accommodate the entire pattern and pin both layers to a cut proof surface.
Carefully cut through the paper and fiber paper with a sharp razor and remove gray areas.
After cutting all of the gray pieces, place the fiber paper on a prepared kiln shelf under an appropriately sized piece of glass (this one is 10” x 10”), and fire to a full fuse.
After fusing, you can use the 4 pumpkin glass for either a dish or a hanging piece. Here I have etched the raised pumpkins with etching cream and then painted them with copper and green mica. Slump into a dish using the Slump Firing Schedule. The firing will bend the glass into your mold, and set the mica at the same time.
