Glass Fusing with the Boys

Over the summer I had bought a Groupon for a glass making place called Make It Glass and while we didn't get a chance to use it during the summer we headed out there with the boys last week before the Groupon expired. I'm glad we did.. it was such an interesting experience. 




Both boys glued and layered their little pieces of colorful glass. Once finished we learned about the different temperatures the glass pieces are fused together at. Now while my brain has forgotten the temps I can surely say there was the option of high and medium.. lol.

High results in a smooth finish while medium it more textured. So we went with a smooth finish on H's piece and a textured finish for D's piece.

        
 The before and after of H's creation!

And up on the wall in his room as a switch plate.
