Stained Glass

Armstrong art glass, or stained glass as it is often referred to, is available in almost 500 different colors and color combinations. Armstrong art glass includes beautiful and unique textured glass for your special designs and for cabinet glass. We also offer more than 50 standard colors in our iridescent glass line.

Each sheet of Armstrong art glass is individually mixed by hand. As a result, every sheet of glass has a unique character, even within the same item number. And because we mix by hand, we can offer many four, five and six color combinations of Armstrong art glass that you simply can’t find anywhere else. 
In addition, there are many clear textures that are frequently used for cabinet glass or in other decorative applications for the home or office. Seedy glass, or seeded glass, is also frequently used in kitchen and bathroom cabinets. Whether you are in Atlanta, or anywhere else in the world, Armstrong Glass is available to you.

We now offer Kokomo, Wissmach, Spectrum and Uroboros glass in our both our online stained glass store and our stained glass and supplies retail Outlet Store in Atlanta, GA.

Float Fire 82™- Sheet Glass

Float Fire 82™ is a complete line of float glass compatible fusing products used for glass fusing that includes float compatible fusible glass, float compatible fusible glass frit, float compatible fusible glass powders, float compatible fusible glass stringers, float compatible confetti and float compatible glass paints. The newest addition to the Float Fire 82 line of fusing products is bubble powder. Float compatible bubble powder is used in the sandwich technique of fusing. The powder is designed to actually create bubbles in your work.

Float Fire 82 glass is a float compatible fusing glass that is designed for fusing to float glass. The glass has a COE of 82 +/-3 and can be fused with inexpensive clear window glass, also known as float glass. Because the COE of float glass among manufactures varies within a range between 79 and 85, there is no guessing as to whether Float Fire 82 is float compatible. It is float glass so it is float compatible. The only question is the appropriate firing temperature. We provide firing guidelines but we still recommend that you test because of differences in kilns and studio conditions.  You must have a UV light, also known as a tin scope, in order to determine the proper side of the float glass that you wish to fuse on.

Float Fire 82 is a very versatile product that can also be used in many applications other than glass fusing. It is similar to flashed glass because the color is on one side of the glass. This makes Float Fire 82 a wonderful glass for glass sandblasting and glass etching. It is easier to work with than flashed glass and it is less expensive.

You may choose to work with only our Float Fire 82 line of float compatible fusible glass frits and float compatible fusible glass powders, fusible glass confetti, fusible glass stringers or fusible glass paints. All you need is float glass to use as your base material. You may even be able to find scrap float glass free. The frits are available in 36 colors and in many different sizes. They come as powder, #2 grain through #5 grain frits, bubble powder, confetti, eggshells, glass paints and stringers.
Try glass slumping, draping and glass bending with Float Fire 82.  Many architectural glass projects use float glass for slumping and bending because it is so easy to work with and produces dramatic results. Imagine the addition of color that is possible with the use of Float Fire 82 glass or our float compatible frits, powders, confetti, and float compatible stringers or rods.

Whether you are making glass tiles, glass table tops, bowls, glass panels, jewelry or large architectural glass projects, Float Fire 82 float compatible products are perfect for the project.

The chart below indicates that some of the frits and powders do contain lead. It also indicates that some of the frits and powders are what is known as striking colors.

They appear to be white before they are fired and change color when the striking temperature is reached.
