System 96 Glass - offers more consistent glass thickness, costs less, is easier to
cut and is overall easier to use than other fusible glass. Also, System 96 glass
has a less chance of divitrifying at higher temperatures than other fusible
glass. Many times glass surfaces becomes dull, rough, milky and hazy. System 96
seeks to avoid this problem. Some fusing artists have found that placing a clear
COE compatible sheet of glass over the piece of System 96 glass helps
significantly in avoiding divitrification.
All Frit is made from glass tested compatible with System 96. System 96 fits most glassblowers' batches, such as "Spruce Pine 87" or "East Bay Special." Typical uses of the powder range from pate de verre to shading on flat or blown forms. Mixtures of large sizes with dark colors in fine or powder provide particularly dramatic effects.
These eggshell-thin shards are perfect for adding detail and interest to your fusing projects. They are the same piece used to make fracture streamer glass. Confetti can be layered to create random forms or shading and color blending.
System 96 Noodles resemble fettuccine noodles in size and thickness, about 1.5 mm thick, 5 mm wide and 16" in length. Noodles are wonderful to use in fusing and bead making. Use them for providing thin, uniform bands of color or fun lines. They are easily bent using a torch or even household lighter. Each tube weighs 5 oz. and has about 20 noodles per pack. The image below shows both stringers and noodles in this color fused to white glass.
Uroboros System 96 Rods are machine pulled from System 96 tested compatible glass formulations. As a result they are straighter and more consistently round than hand pulled rods. System 96 rod users love the low shock factor of our rods, which results in a safer torchworking experience.
