Re: crinklized cbs glass

Firing dichro down usually works better, plus never any sticking. I have had a little dichro pop off when face up. Problem is if you want to cap, you need to fire first as the dichro tends to bubble when capped

Re: trying to make a mold

There are definitely ways to do it. I learned with a great teacher named Judy Hill at Pilchuck. It's a little complex especially trying to show in pictures. It involves multi coats of silicone and then making a line with a release and another coat after that. Then being able to cut through. Kind of ...

plaster silica

HI all. I usually use r and r but the new forms will get so much cold working I can get by with plaster silica. I know mixes like r and r have a shelf life. How about plaster silica? does it matter if they are mixed or separate? I have an old bag of silica and would like to mix it with new plaster b...

Re: cut, carved and polished

Yes. For years I have been exploring the idea of your view changing as you move around a piece. I love carving lenses, and adding carvings on the bottom really heightens things

Re: new work

If anyone can tell me what I did wrong, let me know. I went to attachments, and added a file. It showed the file at the bottom but when I preview, all I see is my text. Tried drag/drop as well with the same result. Is there a size issue?
