Re: Fixtures for Sconce

Does anyone know where I can buy the lighting/wall fixtures for Bullseye mold # 8725? Bullseve sells it for $99 but I think that's a bit steep. Check out the archives - a lot of discussion. One thread is this one: http://www.warmglass.com/cgi-bin/wgarchive3.pl?read=68967 Isn't this board great?! Jo

Re: kiln is cursed

Okay, this is a HUGE bid for sympathy. ... I was so dejected last night I couldn't do any more work for fear I would screw up another piece. And then I wanted to get online to chat with you all and my internet server was down. Maybe I will have to start sacrificing to the kiln gods.... I am afraid ...

IN Catalog Inc

Does anyone know this company? Their address is Weston FL and it sounds like they are a middleman between you and the catalog clients - matching the products to the right catalog. I'm curious what the "right" catalog would be for glass.

Thx, Jo

Re: How Do YOU apply E 6000

I have about 150 pair of earrings to glue the backs to. I am using E6000 adhesive. I squeeze out a small blob onto a piece of scrap glass, then I use a tooth pick to apply a small dab of glue to the earring back, then quickly attach my glass piece. After about 5 pieces, the glue starts to get rubbe...

What is the Jen-Ken window like? Is it just a bigger peephole with a plug that you remove to look through? or is it like an actual window made of something clear that doesn't melt? It's a clear window approx 2" diam. and a big help! Good luck choosing - lots of good points about both brands. Jen-Ke...

Lani referred to making test tiles and others in this thread have referred to the set at Vitrum, mine and Roger Thomas'. I started my collection of tiles after taking a workshop at Bullseye last summer. Many of them are direct copies (dare I say rip-offs) of ones that are part of the Bullseye colle...

Hair Dryers

Okay, it sounds like a great tip, I gotta re-do shelves, I'm going to try it and then fire a load! I don't have any really large pieces so will see with the bubbles. It's worked for me without bubbles. In a rush, needed a newly done shelf; I use the hair dryer on stainless molds all the time - so I...

Brad's book advertised here (he's the host of this site) is a great start. And, like Phil said - the archives are a wealth of info.

Have fun!
