I have only used pate de verre in plaster/silica moulds so glastac worked fine I will definately try wallpaper paste to see the difference. Pate de verre translates as glass paste, wouldn't it be argile de verre to be glass clay?

Just had a thought. Would flour and water work cos people used to use that as wallpaper paste? I'm always nervous about experimenting as frightened I'm going to ruin my kiln!

I wouldn't try flour and water it would leave too much residual carbon which would discolour the glass. In the old days they used milk as a binder, the casin in the milk acts as a glue. It works ok but the smell during the firing is awful.

Nora, I
I'm reading your thread on glass clay, but can't see your photos of the work you did with it. Would you please post them again.
Thank you, chloe
