Emerald Dichroic Extract - 1/8" Sheet - CBS

1 Review


CBS Dichroic extract is a pure form of our high quality coatings literally extracted OFF of the glass and preserved in a glass container.

This innovative method recently created by glass blowing artist Brian Serck, gives the user a stable, brilliantly colored Dichroic effect. And, as there is no COE associated with the Dichroic Extract, it can be used much like a gold-flake or powder.

We have seen amazing results when this new product is used in flame-working, glass blowing, fusing, stippling, painting and various other artistic methods, including the newest Brian Serck Dichroic Extract “spackling” technique.

The Dichroic extract is sold in sheet glass equivalencies.

From CBS on working Boro Dichro:
Boro Dichroic tends to work better if pre-heated. This densifies the coating and makes it more durable in the flame. This can be done in a kiln by firing the boro to 1600° F with -0- hold. Lampworkers attempt to perform this pre-firing in the flame as well. This is when it is important to keep the coated side "away" from the flame. But when kiln-firing there is no need to fire face down.

We fire all of our Boro Dichroic "face Up" in the kiln so that the coated surface does not get the slight impression of the kiln shel(more...)

Interesting stuff. Berzerker glass does a demo on a interesting way to use it.
