Palm Trees – A Fused Glass Decal Project

06/28/10 – Palm Trees – I am sure you have seen silhouettes of palm trees standing gracefully against the sun setting sky. There is nothing like experiencing this romantic tropical scene in person.

A fused glass decal is used to make this scene come to life on this fused glass piece. These decals can be purchased on line and are a welcome break from etching the tiny details into Dichroic glass. With decals you can use any color of glass and embellish the piece before adding the decals.

Read the instructions that come along with your decals and make note if they are low-fire or high-fire before beginning the process. Fuse your glass to a full fuse before adding the decal. This will give you a smooth even surface and help eliminate bubbles in the final product.
