Re: Most up to date way to get paid?

As long as you have all the info, square is good. You can manually enter. Charge is higher for that..about the same as normal paypal.
The advantage of paypal is that the customer enters the info including address.
Note: fr taking any CC be sure to get the security code AND the billing zip code.

Re: Is an art degree necessary for you to be or become an "artist"?

Unfortunately, in this day and age, a marketing degree is far more important than an art degree in determining the financial success of an artist.

Re: glassline paint and powdered frit

Without sounding flip, I just treat paints as glass. That's pretty much what they are. Do your normal firing for the rest of the piece and it should turn our fine. The only caveat is if the maturing temperature of Glassline is above the temperature you fire at. For obvious reasons I am not familiar ...

Re: HOMEMADE IRIDIZING?

Gold Silver copper bronze and red have pretty good staying power when fused up to near 1500. Green, purple and blue are very finicky. We use interference colors for those. They use light diffraction (particle size)to create the color. Their stability goes up close to the metallic colors. pendant3439...

Re: Disposing of ground glass

Terry, The politically sensitive answer is to not do so. I did it all the time. Our paints contain very little (relatively) solids and those are ultra fine. However, I have now installed a Gleko Trap since I do a lot (and I mean a lot) of painting and washing. After the first year, I cleaned out the...

Re: Recommendations for bench grinder?

If your work is small(jewelry sized), by far the best equipment is a lapidary grinder. Water with a fountain type system (cheap aquarium pump).
You can buy a Lortone arbor and add your own wheels. If you need more specifics,email me.

Re: Bullseye glass lawsuit

The worst part of this is that the citizens of Oregon will bear the costs of defending the suit. And the users of Bullseye will bear the prosecuting costs.
There is no penalty for abusing political position.

Re: precious metal clay

COEs are not compatible, BUT thin application that Dana suggests will work. I screen print slip onto glass all the time .
You cannot add onto dichroic. Also, Cannot cap it. Will react with underlying glass, but often not noticeable

Re: squares iout of circles

Back to basic geometry!
D squared divided by 2 equals S squared.

Where D is the diameter of the circle and S is the side of the maximum square.

Re: Does Anyone Here Work With Silver Clay?

I do some silver clay work.
Be glad to do it for you. check around you area bead stores or schools. You might get it done there.
Otherwise I would be glad to do it for you for nothing. Problem is shipping both ways.

Re: Is my compressor pooched?

Bert,
Before you throw the 20 weight in the compressor, check the manual. It may take a lighter specialty oil.

Re: Annealing Question

Go a little higher, say 1200. no need to hold.
When cooling, just turn it off. you will be fine.
I refire 6mm pieces and crash to 900, then recover,crash a second time, and open the kiln at about 500 (top loading kiln, mulllite shelves...makes a difference.)

Re: Homeowners' Insurance

Read the exclusions on your homeowner policy. If is has nothing that can be construed as anti-kiln (and most don't), you are under no obligation to notify them. In fact you probably should not notify them. Once they know, they can arbitrarily decide to ask you to remove them.
