No Days visited AAE Glass, a premier glass fusing center with over 3,000 square feet of studio space in Cape Coral, Florida. In addition to being a Bullseye Resource Center, the outstanding coldworking facilities include a sandblasting cabinet, glass saws, 12″ lap wheels, and of course grinders. And that’s on top of lots and lots of kiln space!

AAE Glass offers classes and workshops as well as open studio rental time.
No Days Instructor Carrie Strope Sohayda was the visiting instructor and taught two different fused glass classes:
|Fused glass mosaics and frit painted pieces|
No Days fused glass mosaics using No Days Thinfuse to create a textural fused glass mosaic with Tekta, fusible glass scraps, frits, stringers, and rods.
|No Days Thinfuse Mosaic|
Frit painting with No Days Liquid Fusing Adhesive to create detailed frit designs.

Some of the advantages of No Days Liquid Fusing Adhesive over hairspray or other glues include: a stronger bond, immediately tacky, strong hold with fine frits, and it doesn’t obscure or erase unfired painted designs with unique glass colors or glassline paints.
|Securing the “frout” (frit/grout) with No Days Liquid Fusing Adhesive|
Some of the advantages of No Days Thinfuse over hairspray or liquid glues: instant faux tack fuse, no glass movement so you can work quickly to finish a project in one sitting, and easily transport your project with no worries of pieces moving.
