Papyros PaperPapyros Kiln Shelf Paper

PAPYROS™ Kiln Shelf Paper is a ceramic-based paper specially formulated for glass fusing. When placed between the kiln shelf and the underside of a glass project, PAPYROS prevents the glass from sticking to the shelf during firing.

Because of its sturdy composition, PAPYROS provides excellent glass/kiln shelf separation on the first use, and frequently even in subsequent firings.

Annealing Bubbles

Annealing bubbles are a lightweight insulating material made from silica that will hold the heat in your beads as they cool up to 3x more slowly than in fiber blanket. They are not a substitute for kiln annealing. However, if you do not have easy access to a kiln, you’ll be able to make and successfully cool larger beads in a tin of annealing bubbles than may have survived with fiber blanket cooling alone. Thick components, such as murrini cane can be placed directly into the material for slow cooling.

Price: 1.75 litre plastic bag (bubbles must be put into metal container before use) $15.37
