Hi Alisa, This is 3mm glass so it does grow a small amount. Probably close to 1/2" overall. I use 3 layers so that it flows evenly and fills up any gaps in the glass. Glad you like my work! Thank you, Cheryl

For years I have been trying to do something different than other glass artists and not make bowls and plates.
