Do I need to powder the blanket before putting my glass on it, or can I just fire directly ontop?
The other thing I want to do is simply to sift some plaster, alumina hydrate and diatamacious earth onto the shelf, play with the pattern and fire ontop of that (a la Bert). Are there any things I need to know about doing this before I do? I've only done this with opals, so am concerned about hazing of transparent glasses.
Thanks in advance.

I like the look, but I've noticed that people don't like to touch it. As with most fiber, it feels ok on float, less so on Bullseye and downright abrasive on Spectrum.
