How compatible is mica with different glasses? I would have
guessed that it would shatter into a million pieces. this
sounds like it could be fun. I have lots of mica laying around
or do I have to use a commercial version?
Actually Mica is very heat resistant. I don't do any real glass
work. But, when firing plique-a-jour enamel (enamel with no
backing) I use a sheet of mica to set the work on. It holds up in
the kiln way past the melting temp of glass. The only problem
that one might have using it in the matrix of the glass, is that
mica doesnt stick to the molten glass....might create some
neat... or ugly effects...it's worth a try though....
