Re: Light bulbs for photo shoot

I've decided to buy incandescent photoflood lightbulbs, probably 500 watts, plus I just ordered the Idiots' Guide to D5000 Nikkon cameras. It'll get me to really fool around with all my camera's little buttons and start understanding how to control how I take a photo. I'm taping up black plastic ove...

Light bulbs for photo shoot

I'm going to be taking photos of quite a few pieces of glass sculpture. I have access to just about everything I need from stands, roll of paper for background drape, decent camera, etc. All I need are the light bulbs, which I googled information about and was overwhelmed by the amount of informatio...

Re: Ode to kiln controllers...

not quite a fused glass question, ? about beadmaking eye protection

I'm hooking up my oxygen propane torch again after a ten year break and need to replace my old didymium glasses. I have no idea which number I need to get, I believe they come in 1, 2, 3 strengths. All my books on the subject are ancient, I'd like more up to date information. Googling for the answer...

update on balloon and condom freeze and fuse

Yesterday I tried 3 freeze and fuse molds, like I mentioned I might try a couple of weeks ago. I used a small, round balloon, a condom, and an ice cube tray that made round ice cubes. By far the most successful was the balloon, which turned out with enough little folds up near where I tied it off to...

Re: freeze and fuse in a condom

So the round ice cube mold has been ordered, but I may still try fuse and freeze with balloons too. I'd prefer to have a slightly imperfect, more organic, shape to my form. But I'll give it a try! If nothing else I'll have cool ice cubes.

Re: freeze and fuse in a condom

Cynthia, Many thanks for your response! I am a mere babe to casting, so your advice will go a long way. I've used condoms in the past with plaster, so I can pour a lot of plaster into them and get the condom to stretch out a bit, which balloons won't do. But with this freeze and fuse, I really only ...

freeze and fuse in a condom

I've only done the traditional method of freeze and fuse once, in an eye cube tray, but now I'm wondering if it would work with a condom filled with the glass powder slurry? Believe it or not, I've used condoms filled with plaster as a mold quite a bit. The condom's original shape gets lost and I ge...

new BE cutting system

Has anyone used the new Bullseye G-Manu Cut1, Cutting System? Looks simple yet functional, although I'm a little suspicious about how long the plastic cutting edge will hold up.

Re: low tech screening

Just remembered, I used the stencil to make a wafer. It worked just fine, and I imagine I could have used it in the classic stencil technique also.

I used one of Martha's stencils with powdered glass and it worked, and there was a lot of detail in it.

casting fishhooks

I might try casting a small slab of glass with stainless steel fishhooks in it, to use as a piece for a piece of sculpture. Might by 6" x 6" x 2"or 3" thick. I did a quick run with a fishhook between a couple of layers of glass at a pretty high rate of speed, maybe 300 degrees to...

If I get the glass to do what I want it to, I'll be using the woven glass in part of a sculpture.
