The 3 lower pictures have a clear base with Ice on top. This fireplace also has a new surround frame that we now manufacture also found in the Surrounds page.
The fire pit below has Ford Blue topped with Ice.
The fireplace below has Azurlite with Ice as a Topper.
This was a 2" installation with lava rock and sand as a base.
The fire pit below has Clear with our very own ICE!
The pictures below we will be showing how to do a 3" install (all glass), a surround painted black and a triple burner with Ice and Starfire.
Above and below are a typical of what most fireplaces look like (yuk)!
Above and below with a triple burner, some cleaning and a little bit of paint.
Above and below we installed an aluminum surround painted black. Only Starfire is installed for now.
It's hard to see but we did install Ice on top of the Starfire. If you noticed we had to pile a small mound in the front to cover the massive pipe connection. Did you even notice it in the first few pictures?
With the surround it make the room. We are proud of our inventions and ideas because our customers are always pleased.
The fire pit above and below have Gray, Gray Reflective, Ice and Red Topper.
Claer Ice in the pictures below
Ice Blue Green below
The fireplace below has a Starfire base with Red Toppings, Red Toppers, Scarlet Red Toppers and Ice
The fireplace below has 1/2" Chunky Clear with a little bit of Ice topping it off installed and a simple self install. This is a remote control and it is located on the bottom right.
Other Uses of Aquatic Glassel
In addition to the use of Aquatic Glassel in your fireplace or fire pit, Aquatic Glassel is used in a variety of other applications. Come back often, as this page will continue to grow. Have fun exploring...
Aquatic Glassel in Your Potted Plants
Here are two large pots containing giant bird of paradise.
Flowers could be planted around the bird of paradise. But they need to be maintained and won't always be in bloom.
Instead, we will beautify the pot with Aquatic Glassel. We cut some grass cloth and covered the dirt with it.
Then we poured some Pink Rosa Aquatic Glassel over the grass cloth.
Finally, we enhanced the Pink Rosa with some Clear Ice. What a nice enhancement to the pots!
Aquatic Glassel in Your Post Lights
Here is a regular post light. We want to add some sparkle to it.
We take the top of the light off.
Now we pour in some Emerald Green Reflective Aquatic Glassel.
These lights really sparkle whether its day or night.
The 2 fireplaces below are the same fireplace! This fireplace started out with a brick face and Clear glass
After a little black granite and some Clear Ice, we have a very nice fireplace!
This fireplace belongs to Carl Herkes
The fireplace below has Evergreen, Evergreen Reflective and topped with Ice.
Before and after, big difference?
This next self install is a 10 picture install with :
Azurlite, Clear, Blue Green, Blue Green Reflective, Ice Clear, Ice Blue. Very nice fireplace.
The fire pit below was a traditional lava rock fire pit
Now filled with lava rock (crushed 1/4" 3/8") over 3/8" 1/2" crushed. Remember the larger is under the smaller to keep the glass from falling through.
Above a flex line was installed to raise the ring to the surface. You don't want to leave the ring at the bottom unless you want an explosion or if you want to get rid of the significant other.
Pour more crushed lava to make the desired shape of the fire pit and test burn for flame pattern.
Starfire base and a few other colors were added
Azurlite, Scarlet Topper, Red Topping, Ice, Copper Blue Topper, Copper Blue is a chameleon as when it gets hot it turns green and when it cools it turns back to blue!
Patterns, can you do better?
Great job and very creative.
The fireplace below has Dtarfire and Ice. This is a complete makeover and turned out very nice.
The fireplace below is in Georgia and we will explain as we move down
The first 2 pictures are of how it used to look, nice logs! I don't think so!
The owners of this fireplace called and told us they couldn't use the fireplace because of the soot (carbon monoxide) (poison) So we redesigned the fireplace with an air vented pan and our glass (Starfire and Ice) and now a clean burn! The flames are all above the glass and therefore no more carbon monoxide. Fireplace Shops and dealers won't tell you about this unless you ask, how would you know to ask?
Starfire and Ice on the left
Pan and ring burner on the right.
Really nice fireplace in the middle of the great room surrounded by 3 glass walls.
The fireplace below has Starfire, Ice and Copper Ruby Red.
The fireplace below has Black, Black Reflective and ICE on top
The tables below were made for the Marriott in Boise Idaho
Marriott Hotel Boise Idaho
This is a pro-to type fire table that when finished will be wrapped in wire and finished in smooth high heat concrete mix with a 48" fire bowl in the middle. There will be a 6" brushed metal finished edge to cover under table lights. The table is 60" wide and 24" tall. These will be delivered to Boise Idaho, Marriott Corp. We will post finished pictures as soon as we can.
A brushed finish 8" edge was added along with a touch sensor to turn the lights on under the table. It is a 3 position sensor (high, medium and low).
Now the high heat concrete is applied and shaped.
As it turns out there is a 36" triple ring under the lava rock and we are down sizing it to a 24" double ring. As you can see when the wind blows the fire get a little bit close to the edge.
If you had a drink near the edge it would be a little bit warmer now. The sides will be dropped about 3 inches and the center raised about 3" and a 24" ring will finish it off. We will post the pictures of the glass and ICE when it is installed in a few days.
The fireplace below is a vent less with a steel pan and a stainless face added to cover the controls. The glass is Azurlite with Ice Ice Ice. Ahhhhh the beauty of no logs! Really!
Can you honestly say logs look good?
The fireplace below has Starfire and Ice Ice Ice installed with a really cool ceramic tile on the face. Nice job!
The fireplace below has Bronze, Bronze Reflective, Ice, Gold and Yellow Amber Topper. This fireplace is in Shawano, Wisconsin at the Cotton Patch Restaurant. E mail Patti and tell here you saw her fireplace.
Now for the after pictures! This was a custom propane burner which was under all of the glass!
This is what Patti had to say:
Well, it's been about two weeks since I installed the new fireplace, and it is the talk of this sleepy little town. Because of the "Ice" on the top, it has been nicknamed the "Fire and Ice" fireplace. I just placed an order for a pound each of 1/4" Gold, Yellow Amber Topper and Clear Ice. I think it needs a smidgen more color, and since the Ice is the big feature, I decided to add a little more. I have to say, I didn't think I would like the ice, but it looks amazing!
Thank you Ed and Jimmy for all of your help and hand holding over the past few months. I will take more pictures when I add the new products.
The fireplace below is a propane burner, self installation with the 2" method, Starfire and Gold on top
Above we have the old burner with a smaller flame pattern which we will change to a double burner in our tray propane pan burner
A little bit of cleaning with a wire brush and 1200 degree paint
We filled the bottom with pea gravel and the covered it with sand
Then we installed the propane burner and filler it with pea gravel to the top of the burners
You can see the pilot light and thermo-coupler exposed
So there it is. A clean burning propane burner, 2" method, no soot, no smells, no carbon monoxide and it puts out a tremendous amount of heat. We sell the 2" method because it works and if anyone tries to tell you different, they need your money more than you do. We are the only company building propane burners for glass that don't soot or smell!
The fireplace below has Bronze, Bronze Reflective , Ice Ice Ice and Clear Diamonds
The Fire pit/ Fireplace is in the entry, pretty cool.
The fireplace below is in San Diego, California and the colors used were:
Cobalt Blue Topper
Steel Blue Topper
Cranberry Pink Topping
Deep Royal Topping
Solex and Solex Reflective
Azurlite and Azurlite Reflective
Blue Green and Blue Green Reflective
and a little bit of Ice Ice Ice on top
The end pictures show that the burner was too close the wall which was an easy fix by moving the burner forward.
This is where is went a little bit wrong, oops. We just had them move the burner forward and now its fine and the back wall was repainted.
The fire pit below has Azurlite as a base and Ice on top making the letter "Y"
The fireplace below is in Glendale Hills California. We installed Starfire as a base with about 1 lb of Ice Ice Ice on top. Then to finish it off we installed a brass surround with bronze frosted glass. The customer loved it! She is the CEO of Fredrick's of Hollywood! Awesome house by the way.
The fire pit below is a new product line from TC, one of our newest dealers. These come with a fibre optics feature, fire and water feature included.The glass that was use was a Clear base with Ice Ice Ice and a splash of Dark Red Orange Topper, Copper Ruby Red Topper and several Diamonds through out for a pretty nice look. We will have pricing on these as soon as we start to distribute their newer products.
The fireplace below is in Beverly Hills California.
We use a Black base glass with Clear Ice Ice Ice on top. The customer wanted to use their original burner to keep the flames localized in the center area. This fireplace goes from "Log Ugly" to very nice and contemporary in about an hour. If you really take a look at your fireplace place in the beginning it almost looks like an incinerator for long ago.
Not very nice? Nice Logs? I don't think so!
Now it's painted and ready for the glass.
A Black base glass and 5 lbs of our Ice Ice Ice.
You can't see the Ice on still pictures but what it is doing like looking into a spoon, it reflects backwards and appears to be melting. Ask for a sample and you will be amazed.
The fireplace below is a before and after and a "how to" make it low and lean. A more contemporary look. This is a self install by Rich Kamins and one very nice job!. He used a Bronze and Bronze Reflective base glass. Topper with a bit of Starfire. Ice Ice Ice and about 2 pounds of Copper Ruby Red Topper for a splash of color.
Typical nasty fireplace before Moderustic!
A few bricks and some drywall
Some sand under the burner for filler to raise the base glass.
And here you have one nice finished fireplace.
The fireplace below is a typical peninsula direct vent fireplace. A simple conversion. We used a Bronze base with Gold on top with Ice Ice Ice and Clear Diamonds and Pink Diamonds.
The fireplace below is a self install with a 2" base of crushed lava
painted with metallic warm brown paint
18 18 double burner
Bronze base glass
Ice Ice Ice
Dark Red Orange Topper
The fire pit below belongs to Mike DeVito in Northern California. When I saw his idea I was excited to help him create something new and wonderful. He took a very old mining cart in his front yard and we helped him convert it to a propane burning fire pit! Turned out pretty cool! Net he is getting a fire pit cover made to cover it from debris and who else knows what.
We use a FPPK (fire pit propane kit) with valves, thermo coupler, pilot light and air mixer. The glass that was use is:
Starfire base glass over a bed of crushed lava rock,
Yellow Amber Topper
Steel Blue Topper
Turquoise Blue Topper
Copper Ruby Red Topper
Ice Ice Ice
and of course our Diamonds in Clear, Pink, Amber and Blue.
I think this is one really nice idea!
It is all supplied by this 20 lb propane tank
Here is the mining cart with the base plate installed with the burners
Here you see the controls, air mixer and thermo coupler and pilot light lines under the base plate
You can use a larger (3/4", 1" lava) as a base under our 1/4" crushed lava as this will save you a few dollars.
Now we pour on the crushed lava to keep the glass from sinking into the larger lava.
Add some Starfire
Splash a few colors
Have your spouse light it in case something should go wrong! (Just Kidding)
Again here are the first pictures we saw of the mining cart. Great Idea!
Mike, you did a great job!
The fireplace below has a Starfire base with 2 lbs of Ice Ice Ice on top with 1 lb of Lavender Diamonds.
The fire pit below was designed and built by Jeffrey Stoutenborough in Santa Barbara, California.
He started with a Bronze base,
Bronze Reflective on top,
Ice Ice Ice.
Dark Red Orange and
Blue Green and a few large rocks left in place.
The fireplace below has a Clear base with Blue Green and Blue Green Reflective on top.
Above and below you can see there was about 2 lbs added of our Ice.
The fireplace below has a Starfire base with Dark Red Orange Topper, Clear Pyrite and Ice Ice Ice on top.
The fireplace below was installed by George Foote who also built his own pan, great job! We supplied the burners and glass and George supplied the talent and labor. Great job George! The colors used were:
Starfire base glass,
Gray base glass,
and our Ice Ice Ice and you be the judge!
Before the pan and glass.
Here is the stainless steel pan that George built.
Start with Starfire.
Add some Azurlite.
and the rest of the colors for one nice design from George!
The fire pit below is filled with lava rock and then was topped with a base of Clear base glass. Then they covered the Clear with Azurlite and topped it with a few Ice Ice Ice cubes. A funny story comes with this fire pit. Elliott came out from the San Fernando Valley as he was sent by his mother, which was tooooo busy to come out herself. She told Elliott to pick out the colors he liked which he did (he was told to pick Amber colors). He went home with Amber and Gold and set up the fire pit which actually looked very nice. Well to his demise his mother did not like Amber at all! She made Elliott pick out all of the Amber and replace it with what you see here. Yes we did exchange the glass for him to prevent his mother from further punishing Elliott. We will post the Amber pictures when we come across them in our files.
Elliott: It turned out very nice! I hope your Mother is happy now.
The fireplace Below has a Starfire base with Ice Ice Ice on top.
The fireplace below was installed with a dual battery operated 100,000 BTU propane electronic ignition system. Each capable of 100,000 BTU's of fire. The first pictures show what we had to work with and how it progressed.
The glass that was used was Starfire, Gold and Ice Ice Ice.
If this was in your house you would say NASTY!
Burning wood and logs is just nasty and dirty! True story!
Above you can see the soot that come out of the fireplace and and leaves your house smelling so carbon monoxide fresh! YUCK!
Add a bit of lime stone.
A few pieces of copper.
Below you can see the sand bed and the ignition box we built.
Below are the two vent we installed for the air mixers inside of the ignition systems.
and here we are finished. Now isn't that much better litter feller?
Modern times call for modern measures! I guess that's why we are Moderustic!
The fireplace below is in Santa Monica California. The fireplace is a Malm Fireplace which can be found at:
We used an 18" double stainless steel burner and a bed of Starfire topped with a few pounds of our Ice Ice Ice.
This is a very simple self installation as you will see.
The fireplace below is in Laguna Beach California. The glass that was use was Starfire. Topped with Clear Diamonds and Ice Ice Ice.
The fireplace below was assembled by Nadine in Dallas Texas (Elegant Reflections USA) Great job on the skull! The base glass is Starfire and Black base makes up the skull. She also used Clear Diamonds and Clear Crystals from our Toppers.
You can see the Diamonds and Crystals around the outer edge for accents.
The fire table below was built for Dr. Ramsey Burton in Kentucky. We are going to show you from beginning in the shop to the finished product that Ramsey envisioned for his patio. Ramsey did a wonderful job in planing, building and execution of this project. The glass he used was a Starfire base with Ice Ice Ice on top. Here we go:
This was the lay out for the table to come!
these were the pictures we sent Ramsey after assembly and testing of the fire bowl, water pumps and fibre optics. The glass we tested with usually is our Multi Mix. It tends to show off many colors and always looks great.
Above you can see the gas line and electrical
Access panel below.
Below the bowl was fitted.
Don't ever forget to install a trimming valve!
There are 6 colors on Ramsey's color wheel in the fibre optics.
Above and below you can see the cover Ramsey have made to protect the fire table when not in use.
Great job Ramsey!
The fire pit below belongs to Chad Haupert. He used an Azurlite base with Azurlite Reflective on top. Then he created a star in the center using Bronze Rust Copper with and outline of Ice Ice Ice. We didn't get pictures of the complete pit nor of it burning. But it looks great!
The fire pit below is going to be installed in Sacramento on 11 14 09 for the Yard Crashers/ DIY/ HGTV show. After it is and has been installed we will post pictures on the Yard Crashers page. In the mean time here is the how to and why. We can build any size, shape, design feature you desire. We build to your imagination.
Below is the catch basin to hold the water for the feature
Above you see the auto fill?
Below the water pump is now install below.
Below the top pan is in place for testing with the fire and water bowls in place
Below the stainless steel ring is installed.
Below the glass (Bronze base glass) has been installed and the lights turned on.
Below you can see the pump has been turned on.
and now the fire.
We placed a card board template to replicate the table top to conceal the lights as well.
Now we add color to the water!
Here is the feature exposed with the blue water. You can change the water to any color you like.
This feature is only 6 1/2" tall. You can mount this under the table top and keep it only an inch or so above the surface of the table top.
So let's change it to red water and add Starfire base glass.
Remember, we build to your imagination!
The finished pictures will be posted on the Yard Crashers page when this project is installed after 11 14 09!
The fire water feature below was built by Don Whittaker and the glass that was used was:
Bronze base, Bronze Reflective, Garnet Topper, Ice Ice Ice and Cobalt Blue Opal Topping.
Here we go from the beginning:
The fireplace below is typical wood burning fireplace which we see every day. Once uncovered it looks like an incinerator. They are pretty nasty looking with out the fire burning. We like to show the before and after so you know what you really have.
Nice! Very Nice!
We had Starfire base glass installed with Ice Ice Ice on top.
The fireplace below has
a StarfireStarfire base with:
Orange R140 Topper,
Ice Ice Ice,
Copper Blue and Steel Blue toppers.
The Orange R140 Topper is actually one of our chameleons, it turns to bright red when it gets hot and then changes back!
Our Copper Blue Topper is a chameleon as well. It turns to green and changes back to blue when cooled!
The fireplace below has Azurlite base glass, Ice Ice Ice and Sky Blue Diamonds for accents.
This next fireplace was done with lack of knowledge! First they installed a 18" single burner and some real interesting choices of glass. What they did do correct is have a 3" sand bed under their yuk glass. The first issue we repaired was the stub out on the left side of the fireplace floor. All we did was install a 90 degree elbow and connect a 1/2" flex line to the new double 24" burner. They had left the flex pointing in the air and then reduced it to a 3/8" line and to top that off added they very sad single 18" burner. We repainted their futile attempt (of painting) with dark metallic brown, added 10 lbs of sand and poured 75 lbs of Starfire base glass over the new burner and sand filler. We will explain as we move forward:
Below you can see the black marks under the paint.
Below you can see the flex line that was installed was left above the surface. Now if we tried that I think our customers would take us out and string us up, what do you think? To top it off this customer was an attorney! Completely happy with what we did.
Here is the new paint on the back walls.
Now we added the Starfire base glass. One thing we have been doing a little bit different is to bring the glass out from the front of the fireplace. We let the glass come out of the fireplace from 3 to 6 inches to make it look even more grand. What do you think?
Here is a the almost finished product of what we do! We left several colors with the customer to add. We will post pictures when they arrive.
Below are teh finished pictures of what else was added:
Ice Ice Ice,
Red R Topper,
Roma Red Topper
I think it turned out very colorful! Check it out!
The fireplace pictures below is a before and after fireplace.
The glass that was installed is:
Galaxy Green base glass,
Ice Ice Ice,
Pale Cobalt Blue Topper,
Lime Green Topper
You be the judge, a very nice mix of colors. Many times better than the BEFORE!
Just the Cobalt Blue Topper is installed above and below.
The fireplace pictures below show the before and after from Bob Kobus. The glass that was used is:
Starfire base glass and Ice Ice Ice, Very nice, contemporary and simple!
Let's go from start to finish:
Nice Logs! NOT!
Bob used an aluminum brick metalized panel.
Then they did their grind pattern.
And here you have it finished!
Yes the logs will be leaving very soon!
Starfire and Ice.
Much better, don't you think?
The fireplace pictures below will show how simple and easy it actually is to install.
Subject: More proof of how easy it is to do with Moderustic providing the materials!
We are so happy with our fireglass fireplaces (we have 3!). It has literally changed our lives in that we can use our fireplaces anytime we want with no worry about cleaning ashes later on. Even better, the look is so superior to fake logs. All of our friends have been wowed by the look. We always send them your way.
J. D. Harriman
Here we go:
Above you can see how nice it WAS! YUK!
Below they painted, we always recommend painting the lines first and then painting each brick separately. Using this technique you can eliminate spots.
Install the burner. We usually recommend curling the flex line from underneath, but this works as well if your flex line is long enough. The reason for the flex line: it allows you to move the burner forward to prevent the flames from hitting the back wall.
Below the lava has been poured and test the flame pattern.
Pour the glass from the front going to the back. You can use a cup or pour from the bucket.
