Resin Art Glass

Clear Glass that can be used in resin work to create texture, high viscosity (low flow / high thickness), visual effects and raised areas.
While we sort as well as we can, each size category will overlap a bit with the next size category. The size description below best describes the majority of the particles but some particles outside of that size range will usually be included. The shape of individual particles is fairly random but some description of the average shape is given below. 
While you can generally handle the glass without gloves we cannot guarantee that no sharp edges or points exist and so gloves are recommended when handling the glass. 
 
By adding small amounts of any of our Pearlescent Pigments or Allure Colourants to the resin, beautiful translucent colours and metallic glass effects can be achieved. Interference pigments, which create subtle transparent colours, also work well with glass. 
 
Often people wonder if Resin Art Glass creates sparkle. On its own the glass in resin does not create sparkle but we have created lovely sparkle effects when our Cosmetic Diamond Pigments are added to resin that is used with the glass. 
Adding glass to resin can be very useful. If a lot of glass is added then the resin becomes thick and not free flowing allowing the creation of raised areas. The glass replaces resin in the volume and thus reduces resin costs. Crystals can be embedded into the glass resin mix pointing upward to create crystal spires. The glass and resin mix will tend to anchor the crystals without the need for glue. Glass also prevents pigments settling as a pigment particle can only settle as far as the first glass piece it contacts. Glass can enhances the effects of sparkle pigments and glitter. 
 
For many applications we recommend that you add the glass to mixed resin and stir briefly. Use a spoon or spatula to apply the glass resin mix which will be quite thick after mixing in the glass. We have included a picture of a resin coaster containing only our Resin Art Glass - Fine.The glass creates a look similar to opaque bathroom window glass. Adding our Cosmetic Diamond Pigment to this would have created a beautiful sparkle effect but we wanted the picture to show the glass alone. Apologies we dropped the coaster so it shows some cracks. We also created excellent non-slip coasters using our Resin Art Glass - Medium. The glass makes the surface somewhat rough which prevents slippage. 
 

Fine Glass

These particles generally range from very fine (sand grain size) to 2mm. 
Fine resin art glass may create a limited sparkle.
 

Medium Glass

These chunks of clear glass vary in length / width from 3-10mm with thickness of about 1-2mm. 
 

Large Glass

Glass pieces that generally range in length / width from 7-20mm with thickness of 1-2mm. The shape is random but the glass pieces are quite flat. 
This is probably most similar to what you would expect from a broken house window but without the many dangerous sharp bits. 
 

Overall colour

Clear glass can appear slightly greenish when lots of pieces are together e.g. in a pile, especially the fine glass.
Green glass has a pale translucent green colour.
 

Resin Art Glass compared to our Texturing Glass Microspheres

Our Texturing Glass Microspheres are finer (like a coarse powder). The microspheres are spherical and uniform in shape and size. The name "Texturing" originates from their effect in paints. In resins they can be used to reduce costs, to thicken resin and to create some visual effects. Our Resin Art Glass will create more texture than Texturing Glass Microspheres.
