CBS Dichroic Extract

CBS Dichroic Extract ~ it is awesome, amazing, and magical.  It is created from dichroic glass, then the extraordinarily thin (millions of an inch thick) coating is literally scraped off of the base layer, and placed into a small jar.

The resulting "magic dust" is the fumed metals and quartz crystals created from the dichroic glass deposition process.  Dichroic extract can be used for a wide variety of mixed media:  in glass, for lampworking, glass-blowing, fusing, as well as you have seen I have developed a quick and easy method to apply it to my FYI Silver metal clay creations.  It can also be used in conjunction with enamels on metals ~ the possibilties are truly endless.

As well, this fab video by CBS (Coatings by Sandberg) - showcases just what it is they create, and how they go about doing so.  

These colour-chart pieces featured below were created with FYI Silver metal clay, and embellished with dichroic extract.  

I've written up a how-to in my FYI Silver FaceBook group if you're curious to know how I applied it to the silver.
