My first attempt at faux dichroic glass! In the Craft stamper magazine (Feb 2009) there is a fabulous tutorial for this technique by Sid which I more or less followed. I don’t have a melt pot (yet) so I had to improvise with a craft iron turned upside down and a small Teflon coated dish from an old Raclette machine. It worked up-to-a-point but I also needed a heat gun to completely melt the UTEE (ultra thick embossing enamel). I only had one piece of sea washed glass from the local beach and it wasn’t totally flat but it made a good practice piece.
