Re: compression mark in small handkerchief bowl

Seachange, try a test run with regular or crystal clear. It could be the Tekta causing the haze you are seeing.

Re: sifting with a doily

Valerie, you are absolutely correct. It's straight-forward with hair-spray - everything would need to dry completely before dumping off the excess. I do the same with mica. I left out the type of spray adhesive that dries without tack over the course of an hour or so. It's a Krylon product but NOT t...

Re: Bohle Silberschnitt running pliers

I cut a lot of long narrow strips and this is the last tool I would use. The glass chips away where the pliers are applied and more flares on the ends of the score. It does not work for me on thins and thin dichro either. For 3 to 9 mm I use my regular running pliers. For a lot of single layer narro...

Re: sifting with a doily

I would spritz the glass with adhesive or hairspray before laying the doily on. Quickly add the powdered glass and let it set a minute, but not long enough to fully dry. Carefully remove the doily - since the doily is dry on the top side, no loose powder will stick. The spaces with adhesive and powd...

Re: Porcelain Kitchenware for Slumping?

Jennifer, total guesswork on my part. For a normal smooth contour, as in a shallow bowl or plate, you could use one coat on the mold. It's thick stuff after it's mixed with latex paint and holds up OK. I was trying to use it with some tricky shapes like a tiny egg-crate, and a deep spiral ceramic pi...

Re: Porcelain Kitchenware for Slumping?

Jen, I have only ever used spray and dry powder at my regular slump temps, which would be up to 1225. I would not attempt it at fusing temps. Jennifer, the Universal stuff does work but use with caution. I have had several pieces with the solution embedded in the contact surface of the glass. Instru...

Re: Porcelain Kitchenware for Slumping?

A fast down and dirty method on glazed ceramic surfaces is to coat with spray adhesive, then dust on a layer of dry kiln wash. I use my small glass enamel/powder dispenser to make a smooth layer. The glue burns out but the powder stays in place. Have gotten multiple uses if the mold surface is not d...

I'm using the pay-as-you-go plan. There is no bank involvement as they issue a prepaid credit card. All sales go directly to that card and can be used for purchases anywhere.

Re: Firing crushed bottles...

1650 for an hour and still not getting results makes me think something is off with the kiln. You may not get a 'puddle' of blue but certainly more action than just chunks stuck together. Ya think?

Re: Good, not thick, adhesive for break repair?

Was hoping to not invest in Hxtal right now - there's a large project planned over the winter but this is just a tiny join. There's a variety of adhesives here already including Dymax and Triolyse. I'd avoid the latter because I know it yellows. Unsure of Dymax. Wish it was configured to use the VHB...

Re: Good, not thick, adhesive for break repair?

Cynthia, how large are the pieces you adhere with DP105? I have a repair to a Murano piece; it was obviously epoxied together when made then the join failed. Base is heavy sphere about 4 inches - top is a heavy spiral about 12 inches tall. Both are clear. My uses of DP105 in the past are metal to gl...

Re: Which molds?

I would invest in a shallow broad stainless steel bowl form. It serves double duty as a shallow square mold or large rounds. Saves buying both shapes. Mine came from Fusion Headquarters though other company probably have them.

Re: burning off metals

I'm certain Judd. It has held up to a gas grill, a MAPP torch and firing at 1400. It's a way cool piece of stainless in a killer shape. (Goodwill $2.50) \:D/ \:D/
