Here are some pictures of 1/4" Ford Blue with 1/4" Ford Blue Reflective on top.
This is also a self installation so follow the pictures down to see how it turned out.

The pictures below are of 1/4" Ford Blue and 1/4" Ford Blue Reflective from beginning to end.
Sand over lava was installed over the burners.
Where is the lava rock and sand? Don't let anyone tell you different as this proves to be very cost effective if you choose to do it this way.

The fire pit below was aired in early of 2008. The fire pit was filmed by Yard Crashers (www.IdeaFactory.tv ) in Sacramento, California. A subsidiary of HGTV and Pie Town Productions. Here are a few shots from the filming. Yard Crashers is a new program from HGTV who do complete makeovers in your back yard. Please contact www.IdeaFactory.tv for details on how you can get involved!
The fire pit below has 1/4" Azurlite, 1/4" Azurlite Reflective, 1/4" Ford Blue and 1/4" Ford Blue Reflective installed.
The fire pit below is at the Torrance Marriott in California.
The fire pit below will show you how not to do it (bad plumbing) and how easy it is to install a battery operated remote control. The glass used was 1/4" Ford Blue and we installed 2 44" stainless steel "H" burners.
In the pictures on the top right, do you see the plumbing sticking out of the pit? Well this was fixed, but not by the plumber that tried to install it. We cut a little bit of concrete and placed the valve in properly.
Above you will see a very poor attempt of a gas burner and valve.
The picture above has our twin remotes inside the box protected from the weather.
We covered the larger lava rock with our crushed lava rock to pour a 1 1/2" method of 1/4" Ford Blue Base to cover the lava and burners. Unless you plan to cover your outdoor fire pit we recommend to use all stainless steel burners and parts to avoid rusting.
Once the glass covers the box, it just looks nice. To replace the batteries, move the glass on the top and the rest is simple.
The fireplace below was done with 1/4" Ford Blue and 1/4" Ford Blue Reflective
The fireplace below is a propane pan burner with a lava rock fill.
You don't want to crush your own lava rock because of the time.
You can use larger lava around the edges of the pan but you will want to use crushed lava in the pan up to the surface of the burners.
The glass use in this fireplace was a 1/4" Ford Blue base with 1/4" Ford Blue Reflective on top. Topped with 1/4" Clear Pyrite and Amber accents. The install went very well except for the rock crushing episode.
The fire pit below has a "FPPK" propane burner installed and the burners were exchanged out for stainless steel.
If you were to leave the steel burners in you will eventually have rust pouring out of your fire pit onto the patio which will not look very attractive!
The glass used was 1/2" Gray and 1/4" Ford Blue.
The controls were inside the bottom housing, nice fire pit but almost a big oops.
Very nice design!
below you can see where the controls were to be mounted
above you can see the steel ready to rust and make a mess. Remember you get what you pay for.
We will be posting different ideas on fire pit covers we can build or design for your fire pit.
This fire pit is in Pasadena California.
The base is 1/4" Ford Blue and 1/4" V Blue topped with both colors in 1/4" Reflective.
Then we topped it with Cobalt Blue Topper G250CF, Copper Blue Topper G251CF and Lagoon Topper G245CF.
Then we made a simple tie cover to keep the pit looking great all of the time when it is not in use.
The fireplace below is a direct vent fireplace located in Palm Springs California at Palm Springs Modern Homes. www.PSMHomes.com .
We have done over 60 of these installs in the condo complex and they all are outstanding!
For those of you who say it can't be done, well here it is. Just because you don't know how doesn't mean it can't be done.
The fire pit below has a 1/4" Ford Blue base with several pounds of Deep Royal Topping #1114 giving this pit a very royal look!
