PAPYROS® Kiln Shelf Paper is a ceramic-based paper specially formulated for glass fusing. When placed between the kiln shelf and the underside of a glass project, PAPYROS prevents the glass from sticking to the shelf during firing. Because of its sturdy composition, PAPYROS provides excellent glass/kiln shelf separation on the first use, and frequently even in subsequent firings.
Cut Papyros to size - approx. 1cm larger than the glass - and position on the kiln shelf. Lay your glass work on top and fire as usual. PAPYROS® is quite durable, and tends to retain its paper-like qualities during firing, rather than decomposing into loose dust. The degree to which PAPYROS retains its integrity can be affected by the characteristics of the glass being used (transparent vs. opal), as well as the intensity of the firing schedule. By carefully lifting the glass project off of the PAPYROS lined shelf, you may find that you can achieve more than one firing from a piece of PAPYROS. Take care in placing the new project to avoid tearing or disturbing the paper.
Cleaning & Safety
Papyros is a ceramic-based product - so like with any other ceramic fibre material - following security aspects need to be respected:
Wear protective gloves, dust masks and safety glasses when handling Papyros.
Don`t breath dust, especially when cutting unfired material and when desposing of fired material. We recommend using a HEPA filter vacuum cleaner to clean out the kiln.
