SDS Form

Schilling Graphics Copper Ceramic Pen works like a paint pen or felt tip pen but applies a thin layer of liquid copper to the surface of your glass or ceramics. Easy application for firing. Fires at 1,112 degrees F up to 1,328 degrees F.

For best results, please follow these suggested instructions prior to use:

  1. Place pen tip down in a container and leave tip down for at least 24 hours prior to use:
  2. When ready to use your pen DO NOT SHAKE IT! Leave the pen tip-down and depress the tip onto a flat surface.
  3. Hold tip to the surface for 30 to 60 seconds, lifting the tip on and off the paper occasionally to help the flow of the material.
  4. Once the tip is completely filled with material the pen is ready to use.

NOTE: Make sure to store the pen TIP DOWN to ensure material is near the tip for future use.

  • The first time you must prime the pen by removing the cap and gently tap the tip of the pen on a hard surface. (This could take several attempts before the felt tip is loaded with copper and it will appear a brownish tone).
  • Be careful not to overload the felt tip or when you use the pen, too much copper will flow onto the piece.
  • When using the copper pen, if it appears to be getting too thin, prime the felt tip again "only" once or twice and continue to draw.
  • The copper is dark when applying so it is very difficult to see on dark glass. Hold your piece up to the light and from a side angle you can see what you have drawn. Try not to draw over the same area twice. It is better to fire your glass and then draw over any area that is not as expected and re-fire.
