Glass Fusing

The fourth-sixth graders made these glass fused pendants.  We are gluing the "bails" on the back to make necklaces.  The kids are going to give these as holiday gifts to a family member or friend.  They each made two pendants.  

This is the first time I have done fused glass with kids.  I used the how-to guides from the System 96 website and ordered the glass from Delphi glass.  

Have you done fused glass in your kiln before?  If so, I have some questions to ask you and maybe you can help me troubleshoot a bit.  Let me know and we can connect!

Some of the pendants turned out wonderfully (as I expected) and some of them did not seem to melt evenly.  They are still beautiful and the kids are proud of their work, but I am wondering if anyone has any insights.

Yes I have done glass art! Last year I bought a small Skutt Hot Start Glass Kiln and I also have two microwave kilns. I've done a few posts on my blog about fusing and slumping glass:

I'm not an expert by far, but maybe I can answer your questions...Did you use your ceramic kiln or do you have a kiln specifically for glass?
