"Thin Fire" Fiber Shelf Paper
There are two popular ways to protect your kiln shelf when fusing: Kiln Wash and this ThinFire Paper. Use this Paper Thin (or actually any of the fiber paper listed below) between the kiln shelf and your glass so the glass will not stick to the shelf. This saves you from coating the kiln shelf with kiln wash. It also creates the smoothest backing possible. The Thin Fire is not reusable. Click here to learn more about ThinFire

These papers come stiff with an organic ridigizer. During the first firing, you will see it turn black and then white again as the binder burns off. There will be some smoke and smell. The paper will be less rigid if you choose to reuse the paper. Fiber paper can be used to make holes in glass by cutting strips and placing between layers. After firing the glass, expose the hole by poking out the paper. Also used to make design indentations on the back of fused pieces by placing design strips under the glass before fusing.
*This does not mean you get that quantity for that price. The minimum order amount means we will not ship it to you unless you order the listed quantity (or more).
Used to make custom molds. To harden the fiber when making a slumping mold, soak the blanket with rigidizer. Drape the wet blanket over any form and dry. When dry, coat with kiln wash and use as a slumping mold. Also used for kiln and furnace insulation.
*Density - how many pounds per cubic foot (Kgs per square meter) the denser the blanket, the
more the insulating value but less flexible than a less dense blanket (less dense may be better for
you if make molds) It is interesting to note that most of insulating value of fiber products is in the
NUMBER of fibers. This is why we list the density of the fiber products. If you took a piece of fiber
and squashed it thinner, it would have close to the same insulating value.
Fiber Mold Hardener. Soak fiber paper or fiber blanket with this rigidizer and dry.
Fiber will harden.

For glass beads, sculptures, ornaments, vessels or any other projects. These help cool your glass slowly to help prevent
thermal shocking or breaking.
To use, place your hot glass between these pads as soon as you are done with it on the torch. The pads hold the heat to slow down the cooling rate. The timing for placing the glass between the fiber is critical. If you place them to soon, when the glass surface is still molten, and fibers may stick to the glass. If you wait to long, the glass may cool to much and break. Experiment with the timing.
