Fusing Farm Etching Creams

Laguna Hares Fur Etch Hare's Fur (FSM-010):
Applied in 1 to 2 thin even coats it produces a matte, opaque lightly frosted surface. When applied to glass for slumping, it will produce radial ridgelines. This becomes emphasized when slumped in a round mold.
Laguna Dapple White Etch Dapple White (FSM-020):
Applied in 1 to 2 thin even coats it produces a dappled or modeled crystallization pattern, on the surface of the glass. When applied to glass for slumping it produces similar results with possible wrinkling.
Laguna Maximum Etch Maximum Etch (FSM-030):
Applied in 1 to 2 thin even coats it produces a sandblasted or deep etched white flat opaque surface. When applied to glass for slumping it creates a frosted matte surface with deep wrinkles. Maximum Etch will repel other creams when dry.
Laguna White Pickett Fence White Pickett Fence (FSM-040):
Applied in 1 to 2 thin even coats it produces a matte, opaque surface. When applied to glass for slumping it will produce delicate frosted wrinkles like that of crepe paper.

Application Methods

Each of the Wrinkle Cream products can be used in a variety of ways to emphasize or alter their prescribed affects. Some can be blended/mixed together or layered. They can be thinned down, by adding water, to create subtle results. They can be layered or applied thickly to emphasize their unique qualities. Note: When layering one or more of the creams it is important to apply layers successively while wet. Applying new coats over dried material it may pull off old material, or repel new material (as in the case of Maximum Etch).

Wrinkle Creams can be applied to flat glass using a pre-wetted brush or dispersed from an Axner Precision Applicator Bottle. Spray application can provide an even soft finish or a spattered/stippled effect.

Dragging tools through creams can create lines. In addition, different ways of applying can also create effects. A dense or stiff brush can create brush strokes or sweeping lines to create pattern, texture and visual composition.

To create bands on the glass, place on a rotating surface such as a banding wheel, lazy-susan, or potters wheel. As the glass is rotated use a brush or precision applicator bottle to disperse the creams in concentric bands around the glass.

After firing additional surface modifiers can be added over Wrinkle Creams. Which is available in Gold and White Gold.

Wrinkle creams should be dry prior to firing. Placing in front of heat and/or air sources can decrease drying time. Use caution when using hair dryers or paint strippers. Keep heat source 6 inches away from surface, and keep in constant motion to avoid thermal shock. Sunlight can also be an affective drying method. For best results fire between 1550-1650 degrees Fahrenheit. (Refer to Firing Schedule provided below).
