Visually check the glass to control the fusing results.
Paragon’s newest kiln is the affordable, exciting MagicFuse. It fires inside a microwave oven to glass fusing temperatures. This is the perfect way to introduce yourself and your loved ones to the amazing world of glass fused jewelry. Create stunning jewelry that your family and friends will treasure. Experiment with the huge selection of stained glass colors available from your local glass supplier.
Place the kiln inside a microwave oven and turn on the power. The kiln will reach 1500°F (815°C) in about 5 - 8 minutes. (Firing time depends on the wattage and brand of the microwave oven.)
Create beautiful glass fused pendants and earrings. Discover how the heat magically transforms glistening dichroic glass and the vast palate of stained glass colors that are available from your supplier. Enjoy hours of creative entertainment with your whole family.
Within an hour after you begin fusing, the glass will be cool to the touch. Experiment with new designs in the MagicFuse before filling your larger kiln with production loads.
Learning to fuse glass
Firing the MagicFuse requires skill. Because the kiln fires so rapidly, glass pieces should be limited in size to 2 layers of 1 ½” x 1 ½” or smaller. Larger sizes or additional layers of glass must be pre-heated for 5 minutes at a 50% power setting on the microwave. Otherwise the glass will break.
The glass must be free of glue, grease, and fingerprints. The rapid firing of these contaminants can cause the glass to break.
Firing times may vary even within the same microwave oven. For this reason, visually check the glass a minute or two before it is done. Then add more time and, if necessary, check it again. Remove the kiln when the glass has fused just the way you had envisioned.
Includes 6 - ½” ceramic posts, glass separator, and a 15-page 5 1/2” x 8 1/2” instruction manual. Place the kiln on 3 posts inside the microwave and on the other 3 posts for cooling. (Note: The MagicFuse requires a microwave oven, which is not included.)
