Re: Simple style as opposed to prosilver

Carla, all you need to do is remove the : and the numbers inside the first image tag in your signature using your control panel to have just [img] in front of your photo url. The new board added the size of the photos to the first image tag of all the photos posted on the old board. Only the origin...

Last week I started recycling glass block into vases, small aquariums and terrariums.What I want to do next is drill a small hole near the top of the "back" side in order to hang the block on the wall. I've posted one jpeg on my yahoo photo album. You'll see one album labele...

At full fuse glass wants to maintain a thickness of 6mm. Chances are your rods will suck up trying to get to that thickness.

My parents were perfectionists and as a child it drove me crazy. I told myself I'd "never be like that." Of course, we should never say never. Here I am a metalsmith and novice glassie both of which require a lot of anal perfectionism. On the days I go off the anal deep end, I think of many things. ...

Talk to Guy McDonald at TeaMac. His website is: http://www.teamacinc.com/ We personally do not use him, yet.....cuz when we found out about him we were already hooked up with Novus. But many artists speak very highly of him and his service. We are thinking about changing and Guy is the man we will g...

I filled my bubbly pasta bowl with tap water and heated it to boiling in the mw. It didn't break. I was afraid of thermo shock too. But it lived to be used another day.

I'm still puzzled by this, since I microwave on my plates all the time and never have had problems. Is there really any water left in the bubbles after all they have gone thru in the kiln. I would think any water is long gone before the glass ever fuses. So is the air in the glass bubbles expanding?...

Hummm, I must be living on the edge. I have plates with bubbles I microwave them, dishwasher them, bang em around. They are fine. The only problem I had was after running one under the broiler for the 10th or so time, it broke. But the microwave has never affected them.

Have you tried bending them using a torch or candle flame? Candles work well with the thinner stringers.

So Tammy at evenheat says this is normal. What does she say is wrong with all the other kilns whose lids don't warp, don't leak heat, and fire evenly? :lol: [/u] I've been thinking of this. It may be a venting solution. My evenheat holds the heat for a long time. This maybe the way evenhead allows ...

We too, have this big evenheat coffin kiln. I too, noticed that once it heats the lid does not sit down fully. I too, worried about this. But I went ahead and ran it. It works, does the job....holds heat well. In fact I think it takes forever to cool off. So maybe this lid deal is within the paramet...

Re: biting my tongue...

I'm kind of laughing, thinking about a possible letter of complaint: Dear Show Promoters, I suspect that artist so-and-so is doing buy-sell, and should be appropriately disciplined. Also, the artist in booth #xxx is a real jerk. Please remove this person from your show. Sincerely, Disgruntled Potent...

We (a royal we, the partner actually) are wizards at cutting round circles for plates. But we (meaning me) had a grand idea to work with opalescent BE to make some full size opal'nt plates.
