Please note Granite Ripple is thicker than soft or medium ripple and gives more textural depth.
What is Dichroic Glass? Dichroic is a multi-layer coating placed on glass using a technical process known as thin film coating. Dichroic glass has a transmitted colour and a completely different reflective colour; these two colours shift depending on the angle of view. The play of light together with its vibrant colour makes dichroic glass a prime tool to add interest to any kiln glass work. CBS have been manufacturing this product longer than anyone in the business and their dichroic glass is Bullseye compatible and of consistently high quality.
Quarter Sheet Sizing: Quarter sheets of textured dichroic glass are a quarter of a circle with a small section of the curved edge removed during the manufacturing process. The area of a textured quarter sheet is around 440 sq cm, which is about the same area as 4.4 10x10cm sheets. See the Dichroic Glass FAQ pdf for more information.
All our glass is COE90, Bullseye Glass compatible and suitable for applications such as glass fusing, glass casting and glass slumping (unless otherwise stated in the description).
