Resin Art Glass
From R 8.00
- Bits of clear glass to create heavy texture, raised areas or sparkle in resin art.
- Generally safe to handle but use gloves as a precaution.
Resin Art Glass
Clear Glass that can be used in resin work to create texture, sparkle 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.
Often people wonder if Resin Art Glass creates sparkle. The Glass creates some sparkle, especially the Fine Glass. We have created lovely sparkle effects when our Cosmetic Diamond Pigments are added to resin that is used with 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, work particularly well with 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 resin mix will tend to anchor the crystals without the need for glue.
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.
These particles generally range from very fine (sand grain size) to 2mm.
Fine resin art glass creates some sparkle.
These chunks of clear glass vary in length / width from 3-10mm with thickness of about 1-2mm.
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 broke house window but without the many dangerous sharp bits.
Resin Art Glass compared to Texturing Glass Microspheres
Our Texturing Glass Microspheres are finer (like a coarse powder) and don't create any sparkle. The microspheres are spherical and uniform in shape and size.
