Introducing Dicro Slide Dichroic Coated Paper! This new application for dichroic coating was developed through the creative thinking and technical expertise of Howard Speelman, (GlassHopper Patterns) and Dan Crow, (Spirit of Glass). Dicro Slide combines a quality dichroic coating with special paper, which results in a layer of dichroic strong enough to be transferred to glass or ceramics.
Dicro Slide has no COE so it works well with most glass. It can be cut with scissors, paper punches or craft knives, is simple to use and fires easily to 1500°.
The versatility of Dicro Slide makes design possibilities unlimited. It offers something new and exciting to art glass. Dicro Slide comes in 5 solid colors and Rainbow. We offer several sheet sizes and assortment packages.
