Recently found that Pebeo Vitrea 160 glass paints, applied with a natural soft brush for a fused glass look, work beautifully for this purpose. Bought...

Re: lace glass

I'd also suggest Paul Tarlow's e-book called "Waste Not! Fused Projects Using Scrap" which contains the chapter "Lacy Glass".

http://fusedglassbooks.com/

His helpful e-books on several subjects are $15 and discounted for 2 or more.

Re: what would happen if

I'd also suggest Paul Tarlow's e-books "Waste Not! Fused Projects Using Scrap" and "Mesh & Trough Melts".

http://fusedglassbooks.com/

Also @ FusedGlass.org there are PDF firing schedules for pot drops and wire mesh melts.
