Technical information


Effects with SLUMPING-COLORS® colored glasses

Optical color slumping effect:

  • Optical color glasses can be colored differently according to working temperature and kiln type and setting; different color combinations are therefore possible.
  • Very high-performance in terms of color nuances and variations
  • Shiny glass surface can be shown through slow and careful heating of the flame and briefly maintaining this working temperature. Charming color combinations can result depending on the duration and extent of the temperature effect.

Methods to achieve the coloring effect:

Using the color nuances through slumping (by adding temperature, here in the slumping process, slumped glass can take on its actual color).
