New Glass Packs and Free Shipping Changes


Well we are recovered from the holidays...Are you?

We are introducing some new scrap pack glass to our website tomorrow.  We have had numerous requests from artists wondering how Tanya Veit comes up with her background colors.  She has sand, water, sunset etc.  This will be your chance to purchase the glass colors that Tanya uses.  She has hand picked this glass as if she was going to use it herself.  We hope you enjoy!  Here are some examples GALLERY

As we add more and especially heavier items, we have to amend our shipping policy.  Free shipping will still be offered for the near future, but the minimums will be increased to $60 domestic and $100 international.  We still provide same day shipping.  This will help us to serve you better and thank you for your understanding..

We have also restocked several silver settings and we have some new ones on the way next week.  We have many new projects and inventory to offer you in 2011 and we hope you enjoy them.

Here is wishing you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! 

We have been able to meet and work with so many up and coming glass artists this year.  We truly feel honored that you chose us to learn from.  We strive to help glass artists anyway we can.  We remember how frustrating those times could be, but we also remember how satisfying and happy the hard work we put in made us.  We encourage you to keep up with your medium and learn from your experiences.  That knowledge will be priceless in the future.

As always, our email is open to help you. will get you a timely response to any question you may have regarding your glass work.  We also love to hear any ideas you may have as far as new products that you would find useful in your work. 

Lastly, we have developed a whole new way to use our glass fusing decals and will be releasing more information in January. I can only say you will "flip" when you see this. 

We also had several requests for the glass combination that Tanya uses is her pieces. IE: sand, water, mountain...You will have a chance to purchase this all together in a convenient pack. 

We will keep bringing you new ideas and products that we have found useful.  By doing this, we will be able to share with you, what works and what doesn't. 

Merry Christmas

Firsing Instructions for Fused Glass

Fused Glass Decal Firing Instructions

Application Instructions:

1. Clean the glass surface where the decal will go.

2. Remove any wax paper barrier, if any, from the decal surface.

3. If desired, cut decal to desired shape using xacto knife or scissors.

4. Soak the decal in a shallow pan of warm water until they easily slide off the paper. It is easier to apply decal directly from the paper to the glass piece. Leaving them in water too long will result in them floating off the base paper and it will be difficult to apply.

5. Use a paper towel to blot excess water and gently smooth out any wrinkles or air bubbles. If air bubbles are not gently rubbed out, a tiny hole will pop through the decal when fired.

6. Change water frequently after soaking several decals to remove impurities.


8. Decals go on your FINISHED, fire polished piece. DO NOT cap the decals with a top glass layer. Decal firing is the last step to your piece.

Firing Instructions:

Preheating is particularly important in decal work. Materials from the medium on the decal must be burned off gently. Good ventilation allow for a clean final product. Leave the kiln lid open 1-2 inches, plus any peepholes. Preheat slowly to 1000 degrees to prevent pinholes or blisters and then procede with normal ramping. Heat-soak the decals at top temperature for approximately 8-10 minutes. THE FIRING SCHEDULES PROVIDED ARE FOR A REFERENCE POINT ONLY! GET TO KNOW YOUR KILN AND TAKE NOTES!

Need additional assistance? Email us at with any questions you may have. Remember, it is always better to under fire than over fire!

Low-fire schedule

250 DPH to 350 HOLD 20 minutes

500 DPH to 1000 HOLD 10 minutes

AFAP to 1034-1074 soak 8-10 minutes

High-fire schedule

250 DPH to 350 HOLD 20 minutes

500 DPH to 1000 HOLD 10 minutes

AFAP to 1280-1320 soak 8-10 minutes

Four Fusing Secrets Inside

Yes, you can overlap decals to create some very interesting effects. I like to overlap trees and forest scenes over suns and moons to create the most realistic scenes. THIS REQUIRES SEPARATE FIRINGS! Apply your sun/moon, fire and then add your trees over the suns/moons. If you try it with one firing, you may get blistering of the decals.

Use colored frit, enamels or a complete different color of bottom glass to create your horizon line. This will add realism to your pieces and add "balance" to the piece.
Several of our glass decal designs come in both black & white.  You have endless possibilities with this technique.  Use a craft knife or scissors for precision cutting.

I am often asked how my decals appear so "black" in some of my pieces. Three factors to this: soak your decals in COLD water if you want more density. Drop your temp 10 degrees and drop your hold time from 10 to 8 minutes. TAKE NOTES! You can always refire our decals and not lose any detail. SO, it is best to underfire and start low!

Show and Tell - Bludragonfly
Etsy Store

My name is Christine Wilson and the name of my business is BluDragonfly.  I have been making jewelry for over fifteen years.  I collected lampwork beads by other artists for several years and designed my own jewelry.  In 2007 I took a lampworking class and I was hooked on making glass beads.  My “Sneaker Wave” lampwork bracelet was featured in Bead Style magazine (July 2010 issue) in the Reader’s Gallery.  In the past I have also created jewelry in Precious Metal Clay and I also took a silversmithing class.
Once bitten by the glass bug I ventured into fusing glass last year.  There are infinite possibilities out there to expand your horizons in the glass world.  I took a fusing class at a local studio and from there I have been experimenting with fused glass pendants.  Recently I discovered AAE Glass and their DECALS.  I immediately fell in love with them and have been making pendants with decals ever since.  I retired in May of this year after having worked in the administrative field for over 35 years.  My husband and I relocated from Denver, CO to Johnstown CO.  Our first priority was getting our glass studio up and running!   am very fortunate to be able to devote more of my time to a hobby that I love. 
This fall I have signed up to do six local craft fairs – they will be in Loveland, Greeley, Conifer, and Arvada Colorado.  I am really excited to be able to share my passion for fused glass with the public.  I can’t wait to show off my pendants that I have created with AAE Glass decals.  I look forward to receiving their emails every week telling me of the new decals that are available.  I enjoy the creative process when creating a pendant by using dichroic glass, frits in every color combination and then selecting a decal that best suits the pendant.  Every morning is an adventure when you race down to see what is in the kiln!!
Thank you AAE Glass for the opportunity to share my story and for always being there when I have a question related to fused glass and your decals!
