DIY Microwave Kiln | Fuse Glass in Your Microwave


By ShakeTheFuture in Metalworking

SNIPPET:

In this Instructable, we'll look into way to make a microwave kiln.

For those who don't know what is a microwave kiln, here is a quick introduction.

Microwave kiln is a kiln that you can put in your regular microwave oven.

It does not use a wire heating element or gas to heat up. Microwave kiln is covered with silicon carbide.

Silicon carbide absorbs microwaves and turns them into heat.

Microwave kilns are usually used to fuse glass.

You can turn broken glass into amazing jewelry.

There is so much more that you can do with microwave kilns.

I use a microwave kiln to burn out Wax or Pla from plaster molds. It works very good.

You can also melt metals, but more on that in another Instructable, since there is much better way to do it by using the same principle.

Supplies:

► Sodium Silicate
► Silicon Carbide
► Ceramic Fiber Blanket/Kaowool
► Scale
► Mist Spray Bottle
► Sugru
► Blow torch
► Plaster of Paris or Any other Plaster


Step 1: Making a Plaster Ring

Rob not the poor, because he is poor: neither oppress the afflicted in the gate:
For the Lord will plead their cause, and spoil the soul of those that spoiled them. Pr. 22:22-23
