Re: Cleaning Glass after Grinding Edges

You might want to check BE reactions, straight advice I got years ago from BE Reactive Potential of Bullseye Glass (charts) When certain Bullseye glasses are combined in the kiln, their chemistries may react with each other to produce special effects. The reactions will take place at the interface (...

I would think you would need stone with the same or very near the same COE as the glass to keep from fracturing.

Re: fused glass with "lollipop" support - how?

If you need a larger hole you could use "refractory fiber rope" that has been soaked with kiln wash & completely dried to facilitate removal.

I've got a revolution also, very expensive but it works great. Yes it can cut a circle and compound curves (easily cuts 1/8" wide pattern bar slices) and for more intricuit cuts there is a blade available with diamond on both sides (blades are round and hollow, no center). :lol:

I use Spraylat, it is great for touching up etchings (remasking areas where the origional mask didn't hold and for texturing) and masking 3D and uneven or bumpy surfaces. Because you paint it on it works great with stencils and for different effects. A little bit goes a long way. I got 2 quarts 15 y...

While you are looking you should look at the Glass Glow kilns, very proudly made by Phil Teefy. These kilns are specifically made for glass fusers with care to design out the problems some kilns have. For instance there is braided refractory rope around the lid (to stop heat loss due to lid warpage)...

So Tammy at evenheat says this is normal. What does she say is wrong with all the other kilns whose lids don't warp, don't leak heat, and fire evenly? :lol: [/u]
