I am currently taking a fused glass class. I also have a little experience with silver clay. I was wondering, would it be possible to combine them?
From what I have read, its better to add the silver clay after you have a fused glass piece - since silver clay fires at a lower temperature than glass. However, would it be possible to add the silver clay at the same time as making a fused glass piece?
The firing temperature of the glass ranges from about 650 (for slumped pieces) to 800 for a full fuse. I have some Art Clay Silver 650 left over from another project.
Sadly, my tutor has no clue about this and told me to 'try it.' However, I to be sure its not going to cause any problems in the kiln and I want to make sure its worth the experiment before I use my silver clay.
Thank you in advance!
