Karon,

You can also get that look by working with a large bar and then cutting it into pieces. I don't have a saw either. Just use my glass cutter, and that's on pieces with a bottom, thick layer of dichro, then a clear top. I find it fun to work with the larger pieces.

Thanks Barbara. I have experienced that with dichroic and should have known it would be the same with iridized. I have had luck with this technique with small pendants, but they were topped with clear glass. What a silly glass to chose for my first big fusing project. Oh well. I'll try again. Thanks...

Sorry Charlie. The edges were sharp and Stuart, it cracked during slumping. Charlie, I'm not sure I understand your numbers. Is it 3 hours to 1100 with no hold, etc. (If I remember correctly). Sorry, I'm numerically challenged. Stuart. The strips were small, less than 1/2 inch. They did fuse togethe...

The crack is flat and pretty smooth. Fusing schedule: two hours to 1100 with 15 minute hold, one hour to 1300 with 15 minute hold, then aqap to 1500. Took about half an hour for the layers to join and the edges to round out. Flash vented to 1100. Two hours to 750, 10 minute hold, then turned kiln of...

Help! It broke

I just fused and slumped my first dish, a 5X10" platter. I believe the glass was green aventurine. It was iridized (?) on one side and sparkly on the other. I placed a layer of clear glass on the bottom and put the iridized side face up. I then placed strips of the same glass, iridized side face dow...

Cutting a Circle

Hi, I just received my handy-dandy circle cutter but no instructions. I just scored a beautiful, even circle. Now what? How do I get the circle out of the glass. I've tried tapping. I cut a score into the circle line and broke some of the border off. Is this how it is done. Seems like I might break ...

Help!

I am a total computer ignoramus. I posted on this board for the first time in a while yesterday and last night received an e-mail saying I have a private e-mail. I'm afraid to open it. Should I be? Is there some way to check to see if it is for real? thanks.

Kitty, How do you get five firings in a day? My kiln is just a little larger than yours and I'm lucky to get two. How quickly do you cool down? I have on occasion just turned mine off when firing tiny earrings with no breakage but am nervous about pushing it with larger cabs, etc. My kiln is not lin...

Jim,

Sharpies do not hold up to water in a grinder so I doubt the markings would in a saw. You can try covering your markings with chap stick or candle wax. Although I have not tried either yet, I have heard they both will work.

Broken While Drilling

While drilling a hole in a piece that I spent a considerable amount of time on, the edge on the outside of the hole broke off. It was a clean break. If I glue it back on and refire, will it repair itself? Do I take it to full fuse? Any other suggestions?

Thanks.

Glass Placement

Hi Ya'll, I'm getting ready for my second show this weekend. The first, last weekend, went reasonably well.Of course I'm in a hurry. Am trying to make Christmas ornaments and wanted to make snowflakes. It's odd, but I've never tried this before (not snowflakes). Will a single layer of glass fuse tog...

Dee and Mark, Thanks for your help. Mark, I was not lifting the bit that often. Will try that. Dee, I thought $8.00 was a pretty expensive drill bit for only 20 holes, but maybe I wasn't lifting often enough. Will try that now that I know I should be able to get more holes from a bit. Ya'll are wond...
