I've been using Aileen's Tacky glue. Clear, dichro, whatever and it hasn't left a mark. Sets up pretty fast too. I don't water it down either, just a little dab with a toothpick. I don't much like any Elmer's products, that's just personal preference I guess. Didn't Tony Serviente do a bunch of diff...

Uh, no. I don't have much luck cutting thick glass. But I can flip a switch like a pro. :lol: TY

cutting rods

This may seem like a no-brainer question. I just want to make sure. I bought a couple Pyrex rods. Are they OK to cut with the wet saw? The main reason I'm asking is that they were delivered 'cut in half' but it looks like there was some difficulty there. They look not so much cut, but like a stick w...

I haven't posted anything for a critique, because I don't have anything yet that I want critiqued. I'm working on something now, working out the bugs mostly, that I will post to see if it has any potential and should be explored more or not. I guess I'm prepared for people to like it or not, to see ...

I found a couple of interesting how-to sites while I was searching for what I did wrong. Turns out everything I guess, or at least backwards. Anyway these have pictures and text, and seem to be pretty good if you're making small molds. http://www.mouldmaking.freeserve.co.uk/ http://www.hirstarts.com...

Fusing strips

I fused together a block of 3/8" strips about 5"X7" as an experiment for a design I'm trying to work out involving cutting the block up, adding another element and fusing it back together. It worked fine except for the look of the lines from the strips. The top of the block is fully fused together, ...

I was messing around yesterday with my very first mold making, and I used some Sculpy clay that doesn't get hard unless you bake it in the oven. I'm not sure if that is like plasticene or not. It pulled right out of the mold, but got messed up. And it left a very good impression. I did have a proble...

Do you have the Harry Clarke book/exhibition catalog? I love his church windows (and as I'm doing eastern orthodox icon research, marvel at all the "Harry Clark hands", or I should say Clark's style was very iconographic), but some of his book illustration is very bizarre, even troubling.... no, le...

Travis, try to get to Trinity College and check out the Book of Kells. There are some Harry Clarke at Bewley's (sp?) Cafe. Also at St. Mary's I think. The National Museum of Ireland is awesome. The gold and Viking exhibits are amazing. For fun stuff, The Comedy Improv above the International is hyst...

What's the deal with the 'dry' cutters then? MacInnes says it's the carbide wheel, and Toyo has a dry cutter out now, I don't know what kind of wheel they have. Is that just hype or is there something to it? Just wondering.

I used olive oil once when I couldn't find anything else.

Re: question about fusing

Thanks so much for all the input. I hadn't thought about Nichrome wire. Do most other metals show oxidation at high temps? I was hoping for a copper 'finish' or shine but will try anything. Is there an easy way to find the melting point of different metals @ varying thicknesses? Here is a chart for...

Ian, that disappearing post was just a fluke I'm sure, and weird timing. Got your PM, but I wanted to show this and maybe get some feedback from more experienced sanders. OK, this is the same one with the radial stripes and turtle poop issues; http://pic7.picturetrail.com/VOL205/1158394/2545936/4864...

Hi Steve, no they went around the inside perimeter of the pot like dominoes. I made little sandwiches of clear/color/clear-white/color etc., and stacked them vertically. They weren't exactly vertical either, but kind of leaning. That's the first time I did one and actually tried to calculate what wo...

I have found that Yellow and Blue hot glass color also make Turtle Poop Brown unless clear is imposed inbetween. Generally the reds and yellows react poorly with the greens and blues. If you had clear pieces mixed into the melt, then you may have had some of the mixture protected. I had clear or wh...

I also had mud problems with my most recent potmelt. It had the yellow as well as red and some thin steel blue. They were all stacked in order with either clear in between and/or white-clear streaky and set up vertically around the inside. I have a small kiln and am not able to do a 4" drop. It was ...

I'll take a guess on the one you did 1st. The bowl? I can't give a critique either, but I do like the colors and the lines especially in the bowl. I have a couple questions about some of the design elements. 1. The bowl has groupings of off-color vanilla. Was that intended or was the treatment you u...

I've got no business giving a critique, but I have a couple comments. I very much like the way the gold plays with the blue/purple irid especially on the unfinished portions. There is some wonderful negative space designs there and I think the way that offsets the formalness of the design is a wonde...
