OUR MISSION: To facilitate communication among glass artists, to encourage education and promote excellence in the glass arts.


When using agents for mixing a powder stain or enamel, one might consider
squeegee oil, a pungent thick oil that completely fires out and leaves a
wonderful gloss. Used only for trace lines or total fills. NOT for matting.
To thin, if needed, use mineral spirits.

IMPORTANT SAFETY PRECAUTIONS: Squeegee oil is a poisonous
substance…treat accordingly. Ventilate room well where painting and firing your kiln. Take precautions to wash hands well and consider wearing a mask. For sensitive skin, wear rubber gloves.
