Casting Schedules?

Is there a website (besides BE) that has annealing schedules for large, thick castings? Especially interested in float glass.

Will pay for prototype and process to teach us to make a sand mold for a flat 1-layer glass production piece. 18x18 with bumpy texture underside. Tried Castalot but depressions too deep to allow air escape. Sand works best, but techinique needs refining. Must be easily repeatable for production. PM ...

New Zealand trip

Some good friends are traveling from the US to New Zealand for a month and would love to visit glass studios--particularly cast and thick glass artists. If you are open to visitors, please send me your websites (via PM is fine) so I can forward. Thanks!

Re: Sand Mold Basics

Thanks. I hadn't looked up Green Diamond. After I was told it was 3x the cost of olivine, I didn't pursue it. I'll get a bit from the foundry and test.

Sand Mold Basics

I am needing a basic, step-by-step tutorial on making a 12x12 open-faced sand mold using "play" sand. Need to impress a pattern to come out crisp and sand-free. I also have some olivine sand, but more "play" sand. Help, please. Thank you, in advance.

Re: Alternate Frit Maker - any downsides?

Our low-tech frit machine is a cement block and a hammer. Works extremely well, with no metal fragments. Just make sure you don't have cement in your frit by using an encasing material like foam (newspaper degrades too much).

This mix can be reused ...
