Fuseworks Microwave Glass Kiln - An easy way to start glass fusing -
Glass fusing in a microwave? Yes! You can!
If you've been thinking about learning how to fuse glass then this little kiln is a great way to get started. Made of a high tech composite material, it is made especially for firing in a microwave. (The picture shows cabachons which I made using this kiln as examples - they are not included in the purchase.)
This kiln measures 3 1/4" H x 4 1/2" wide with an interior platform which measures 2 3/4" so you can easily fire pieces perfect for pendants, earrings and brooches.
I've been testing these kilns and have been happy to find that it can reach full fusing temperature (about 1350 degrees) within 4-6 minutes! Amazing. Let cool until completely cool - which is about an hour - and then you've got a lovely little cabachon to use in your jewelry creations.
It's very easy to use - cut your glass, stack it in the kiln on a piece of kiln paper which acts as a release, close and hit go. The length of time really depends on the power of your microwave and the effect which you're going for. But after a few pieces you will understand how many minutes to set on your microwave.
I like to use a microwave outside which I use only for fusing. (I'm just extra careful. I'm the same way with my polymer clay - I have a toaster oven just for clay baking and never put food in it.)
Occasionally you'll get a sharp little corner on your cabachon after you finish. Just use a piece of wet/dry 400 grit sand paper or a carborundum stone under running water to knock that sharpness off.
I've been fusing glass for about ten years and own three large kilns and just love this baby! I use this little kiln when I want to quickly test out an idea or just want to fire polish a small piece without having to fill an entire regular kiln. It's fabulous!
This is a fun inexpensive intro to glass fusing which will have you ready to leap into the wonderful world of glass! Hooray!
Comes with complete instructions. Not a toy for children.

Shipping & policies
***First thing - I do indeed do combined shipping and refund any extra postage back. Yey!!***
I ship via USPS Mail and Federal Express. Unless stated differently in the listings, I try to ship out within three business days after payment clears and sometimes even that same day if you happen to catch me on the way to the post office! (The leather wristbands take closer to 5 business days because I have to cut them to size and add snaps.)
I figure out the shipping rates based on the weight and size of the objects. All domestic purchases under 13 ounces ship First Class Mail. Anything above 13 ounces ships Priority Mail or Fed Ex.
Outside the US, I ship all packages weighing less than 4 pounds and up to the maximum size allowable via International First Class Mail (it's the most economical way and saves you money). All other packages ship via International Priority Mail.
***** Please note - USPS and Fed Ex delivery time estimates are guidelines only and not a guarantee as to when the item will actually be delivered. If all goes well you'll receive your item within 10 days but please allow up to three weeks to receive your order within the US and up to 8 weeks to receive your International order. (Sometimes items get hung up in the Customs office and it delays delivery of your purchase.)
Please contact me if you absolutely need to have something by a certain date and I can arrange to upgrade your item to be delivered by an outside courier company.
***** Please allow extra time for your delivery during the holiday season. It is the US Post Office's busy season and things can take longer especially when there is bad weather involved.
Any customs fees incurred in shipping internationally are the responsibility of the buyer so please keep this in mind when placing your order. In keeping with the law, all packages are marked as "merchandise".
Here is a very helpful explanation which details the entire checkout process:
I try to ship out everything within 4 days of the order being placed and payment going through. ****HOWEVER IF YOU ORDERED LEATHER WRISTBANDS - PLEASE allow 5 business days for these to ship out - I cut them to size and add the snaps myself so it takes me a little extra time.***
So you know - E-checks take a little longer to clear - typically 4 days if you're in the US and up to 10 days everywhere else. It's a drag of a wait but in those cases, I wrap everything up and have it ready to ship out as soon as possible! Thank you!!!
Returns & exchanges
I hope that you are happy with your purchase but do accept returns under certain circumstances. Please contact me within 3 days of receiving your purchase if you have any questions.
Please note that shipping fees are not refundable (that's because the money you sent me for shipping was indeed spent to ship it to you). But please contact me and maybe we can work something out.
**** Please note - if you live in California, sales tax of 9% on the items purchased will be added to your total. Thanks! *****
