1. First, we rounded the edges of our Clear Glass Blank by turning the mold upside down and tracing the edges onto the glass. Then, we scored and cut the edges.
2. Separate your Clear Glass Blank into eight strips with a permanent marker. This will become your template for laying out your triangles.
3. On each individual glass block, draw strips with the same width of the stripes on your blank. Draw zig-zags in between each set of stripes. Skinnier zig-zags will create skinnier triangles, while wider, more equally spaced zig-zags will create equilateral triangles.
4. Using your Pistol Grip Glass Cutter, score the lines you just made on each block and break with your running pliers. Our sample is approximately 8 triangles x 10 triangles, with some smaller pieces filling in the edges.
5. Decide how many triangles of each color you want and cut them all out before you glue. This way, you can rearrange your pattern as needed throughout your process.
6. Once you have all the triangles arranged, secure them with a small amount of glue.
7. Optional: We opted to finish our piece by filling in the spaces between the triangles with Clear Medium Frit. Sprinkle the frit in the cracks and brush off the excess with a dry cotton swab.
8. Let Dry. Contour fuse using the 6 segment program provided.
