Hot Mix Fire Dragon COE 90 import glass ???

I am acquiring a large quantity of "Hot Mix Fire Dragon" plate/frit and stringers. It is imported and dated 2007. COE 90 Has anyone ever heard of it ? Colors resemble Fiestaware, and most of it strikes. Clear to opaque. Maybe this flickr link will work: https://www.flickr.com/photos/672053...

Re: Who sells blank cabuchons?

I will sell them. I kiln melt and then tumble polish them.
Or break/saw melt slabs/bricks and then tumble shape/polish them.
I use all kinds of glass including vases from all over the world.
I don't want to get in trouble 'selling' here, not sure if it is allowed.

Re: Polishing any fused glass in a rock tumbler

Hi Joyce Doing well with a Dremel set at 8000RPM mounted in a Home Depot purchased Dremel drill press. Using water. 1mm and 1.5mm drills are sizes of choice. .925 pinch bails working well with the smaller 1mm holes. One of the pinch bails has a larger yoke that covers the hole and defects from drill...

Re: Polishing any fused glass in a rock tumbler

Thanks for the tips on drilling Barry. Perhaps it is my clumsy self but I have best luck with using a Dremel mounted in it's drill press over free handing w/a foredom. grrrr, breaking the glass constantly free handing. Spectrum 96 and Bullseye 90 is tough glass and melt to a durable 6mm and may end ...

Re: Polishing any fused glass in a rock tumbler

Hi Joyce Your idea is an excellent one. Especially for those that drill with heavy hands and experience break-thru's. Tumbling pre-drilled pendants in the later 'gentler' abrasive stages in the tumbler will be no problem. To test for possible impact damage to the glass in a tumbler a few delicate pi...

Re: Polishing any fused glass in a rock tumbler

Thanks for looking at the jewels. The ~.5 micron polish on the glass reveals the colors and patterns in the glass well. Judging from the finish estimating the abrasive to have broken down somewhere between 50,000 and 100,000 in the vibratory tumblers. As glass approaches a 5000 grit finish micro bru...

Re: Polishing any fused glass in a rock tumbler

Or here is the link to the entire flickr album:

Most of the glass is scrap or from vases and plates.
I have only had a kiln for a few months so I am not very experienced at fusing glass.

Polishing any fused glass in a rock tumbler

Hi, first time posting here and thank you for the privilege. After many years of tumbling rocks I finally modified a rock tumbler to polish any jewelry sized fusion regardless of glass composition. So cold work is a large part of the process in some cases before and about always after fusing on a fl...
