This fireplace has a safety pilot light kit which was still left intact for local code reasons but we did get rid of the non functioning pan burners.
Below we poured the crushed lava base up to and just covering the ring burner.
Then we poured the Bronze Rust Copper over the ring and crushed lava rock.
With the doors closed just enough as you can see now they can control the hurricane/ tornado effect!
The fireplace below is a before and after with Solex base glass with Gold base glass and Starfire base glass on top. It does look much nicer with out the screens and new paint.
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 fire pit below is a custom fire pit in Covina California with one really great back yard design. This back yard was designed for great parties. If you look and see the glass wall with the etching you will also see the fire pit in the back ground. The glass that was used: Gray and Clear Pyrite base glass Gold Reflective Copper Blue Topper This is one really good looking table.
The fire table below is in Sackets Harbor New York with one very nice view. The colors that were used are:
Bronze base glass
Cobalt Blue Topper
The fireplace below is from Cory here locally in Rancho Cucamonga California. This transformation was a complete surface make over along with out Sterling Silver interior. The glass that was used was Bronze base glass. This is truly a DIY project and we like to help you create your ideas to reality.
Here we begin with the old interior brick panels removed.
Below you can see the new stone being applied.
Below the Sterling Silver panels and Bronze base glass with a few pounds of Gold base glass was installed.
Now you can see the reflection on the walls in the Sterling Silver panels. No, these are not just mirrors in the fireplace. If you do try this, let us know how it worked out for you. Be sure to send us pictures of your project and we will be sure to post it on our "How Not To Do It Page"! No, Really!
Again we are proud to constantly give you new and exciting products for your fireplace and fire pit projects.
The fireplace below is from Steve Calderon and he used a Starfire base glass with Gold and Bronze Rust Copper on top.
This is from beginning to end.
Above is the before believe it or not. As you can see Steve did a terrific job. This was a wood burning fireplace before. he installed a gas line and control valve on the right side.
Below you can see the old burner which we replaced with the new double 18" burner.
Mask it, vacuum it after wire brushing the walls clean.
A bit of Thermolux 1200 degree high heat paint.
Fireplace Glass used:
Pour in a Starfire base with a splash of Gold and Bronze Rust Copper on top.
Then you have one nice fireplace, great job!
The project below is being featured on HGTV/ Yard Crashers/ DIY Network.
This is a gold mine and river project and as soon as they release the pictures of the project we will post those as well. But in the mean time here is our project we created for the DIY Network/ Idea Factory!
We started with Gold base glass on the two top gold pans.
The lower pan had a bed of Black Magic under the Gold base glass
We were pumping water into the top pan so it would run down through the three pans and then pour back into the gold river Yard Crashers created. Only fire came from the two top pans.
We used three 16" gold pans for this project.
Pictures of the finished project will be posted as soon as the Idea Factory forwards them to us.
The fireplace below was installed by Scott Hansford of Palm Springs California.
We made an aluminum border to separate the glass from the outer stone layer. This helped in design and saved on glass as well. We will explain as we move on:
Do you see how high the gas connection is? We sent a 90 degree elbow to point the gas line down and then added enough filler to the bottom of the gas line to conceal it under the glass.
The metal border is installed holding the outer layer of rock in place.
They didn't like the post in the fireplace so we cut a mirror to preview if in fact they wanted it covered at all. If they would of wanted it covered we would of made piece of super 8 stainless steel (highly polished) to cover the post. The mirror was only a temporary visual. DON'T USE REGULAR GLASS NEAR ANY FIRE! So if you are not sure, preview it. The glass we used was a Bronze base glass with Gold base glass and Clear Diamonds.
The fireplace below is a direct vent conversion. The most important issue to address here is to NEVER increase the amount of fuel that your fireplace was designed to burn.
We will explain as we move forward:
This is the burner in this particular direct vent fireplace.
This burner will work just fine.
Nice Logs? Isn't that the WOW! factor you were looking for?
Now we add Bronze Rust Copper base glass with Gold on top.
You tell me, which looks better?
Mike Clemen installed this next fireplace. He started of with Starfire base glass and exchanged it for a Bronze base glass.
Then he topped it off with 1 lb of each of the following:
New Yellow base glass,
Dark Red Orange Topper,
15 lbs of Bronze Reflective base glass,
Iris Yellow Topper,
Saffron Topper, Granny Apple Green Topper
and Extra Gold Ruby Topper.
And when he finished it, it looked amazing! Take a look.
Mike has received many compliments which we constantly shares. We do understand why and we were glad to help.
The fire pit below is from Frank Hammond. He created a beach environment in his back yard. He purchased a wood burning fire pit and we converted it to a gas burning pit. We also supplied a quick disconnect gas line to eliminate plumbing underground. he used a Bronze base glass over a bed of crushed lava and topped it with Gold base glass.
The fireplace below is a two sided fireplace from the bedroom to the bathroom. This is a very simple conversion. A Starfire base glass was used and topped with Gold bas glass.
Very simple, very clean and very nice.
The fireplace pictures below have a Starfire base glass, Gold base glass and Copper Blue Topper.
You have to admit, this is one interesting fireplace design!
The fireplace pictures below will show how simple and easy it actually is to install.
Here are a few comments from J.D.Harriman John.Harriman@dlapiper.com
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.

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.
Turn it on and your done!
The glass that was used is:
1 lb of Gold,
Ice Ice Ice for one simple but nice fireplace!
John Kirkhan below started with a Starfire base glass and added:
and Ice Ice Ice
The fireplace below was a
Self Installation by Julie and Ty Hergenrother. This is a typical Direct Vent conversion that we help hundreds if not thousands of customers convert from those nasty logs. The glass that was installed was a base of Starfire and topped with Bronze base glass and Gold base glass.
These all start out nasty and we do what we can to change that, one fireplace at a time.
We even made the bottom face shield to make it look more uniform. This can also be done in any metal or design.
The next fireplace is a typical 70's/ 80's I am trying to be creative with my logs and adding candles! NOT!
The glass that was used was a base of Amber base glass and topped with a few pounds of Gold base glass.
Clean, sleek and it produces heat like you have never seen! Typically after 45 minutes to an hour we find that the glass gets up to and over 600 degrees, Guaranteed!
