Re: pieced dish splits during slumping fire

thanks Val, I've made two more dishes and used a solid piece of clear for the top, and yes, that is working fine.

Re: pieced dish splits during slumping fire

Marty, I can’t find where I got that schedule now. I either took it off the metallic decal instructions, or I made a huge mistake when I copied whatever schedule I was looking at. It certainly isn’t the bullseye one for slumping. I do have to fire a bit hot in my small kiln to get full fuses, I had ...

pieced dish splits during slumping fire

The fusing firing looked ok. During he slump firing the dish split apart pretty much along the seam of the top glass. I used two 3mm layers of COE 90 glass. The slump firing schedule was: 250 to 350 soak for 12 min 350 to 750 soak for 22 min FULL to 1400 soak for 15 min FULL to 900 soak for 1 hr. 10...

Re: First firing: Is this right?

Brad, Thanks for your help. What would be your first guess for slightly hotter? 100 degrees hotter? or 200?

Thanks, too R for your experience.

First firing: Is this right?

First Firing: Are these fully fused? When viewed from the top these look rounded but from at least two sides on most of these, the edges look like a sandwich. Is this a good firing? Will fire polishing melt them together more? For my next try should I increase my fusing temperature, or the length of...

Place slump mold directly on kiln Shelf?

It is my first slump firing. Do I place the mold directly on the shelf, or should i put it on stilts to aid in air circulation? It has four small holes in the bottom, but wonder how well the air circulates if it is sitting on a shelf. thanks.
