But, since I asked the original question, I might suggest strong consideration as to whether it is worth the effort to begin with..... Is searching the member base going to be an important enough thing to justify the time and effort? How many times has the issue come up?

I don't have any place around me where I can buy molds, so I am still moldless, and I almost have no other course of action than to give these vendors another shot! :-) I know I probably look like the bad guy to some of you for voicing my situation, but I can't do anything about that. If things turn...

I think if it happens again under the Warmglass banner, it should be completely in Brad's control. After all, the final product reflects on him more than upon the rest of us. Your thoughts, Brad?

There are 17 sponsors on this site and you've mentioned problems with two. I don't think it's fair to lump them all into the same "unresponsive get new sponsors" category. I would suggest you email Brad privately and see if he can tactfully communicate to the sponsors that their advertising dollars ...

"Relative" is the operative word. Do you want it to hold up ten years? Or 100? It depends on the application. With work in public buildings, it should survive, if not several generations, then at least your remaining lifetime. If there is some doubt the materials won't, I would pass on using them.

So let me get this straight.... if I ordinarily do a lot of liturgical work and stuff dealing with altars.... I should now go for, what? pornography and make something that goes in the bathroom?? Um... I dunno, it could get ugly. Beyond ugly even. :shock: :lol: Maybe I'll try landscapes in gold leaf...

Be careful with any of the low-fire Reusches which cure out at about 1050 degrees. The potential problem, in a sealed unit as you describe, is the risk of corrosion to the low-fire paints. When the unit leaks in 10-12 years, the combination of water vapor, dessicant, and solar can create nitric acid...

"Why should that notion bug you Don? Intent IS more significant than execution. " Will have to disagree with you on that one.... I've turned away far too many artists at the gallery whose intent was admirable but whose work was really bad and not anywhere near gallery ready. Good art is a combinatio...

Don, I love that last sentence! ROFLO. I know just what you mean. One of my favorite exercises is to create a piece using black, my favorite color, and my least fave. I like Jackie's exercise because I ordinarily like formality, ornament, and well thought-out design... and color. I might just try so...

I will head for the store & get the Glass Plus today! I also read 1 part Vinegar to 5 parts water I think in the archives? Is that effective? And while on the subject of Archives, putty was covered widely... Bert you use a homemade mix of whiting & linseed oil, & if need be thinned with turpentine?...

LOL. See what I mean.... they answer their phones RooSHAY. I guess even if they're wrong, they have a right to pronounce their own name any way they want. Still, I find it odd that they've taken on a French tone. Probably another one of those things that goes back to Ellis Island, what do you think?

Ammonia is murder on lead, too.... best to just stay away from the Windex and be sure the customer knows it, too. Benign neglect is the best thing for them to learn. As to putty, don't use any hardening agents like portland cement in your mix, or Plaster of Paris which will create lime bloom over ti...

Devitrification is white hazing on the glass that can occur in certain fusing temperature ranges and more so with some glasses. You don't have to worry about it with the glass painting, at least not with the Reusches which don't fire as hot as some other glass paints. I'm trying to think if we've ev...

Reminds me of a Pastor friend who was commending the New American Standard version to his huffy great aunt, who told him if the King James version was good enough for the apostle Paul it was good enough for her! What more could he say... Which goes to show you how folks skew the facts... the King J...
