kiln casting annealing

I did a brief class in casting and have a question...
If using just one sort of glass - one colour billet, is it still possible to have problems after firing? e.g the piece 'pinging' and breaking because of improper annealing? Or does this mainly happen when using incompatible glass.

Thanks.

Re: Follow in devit question! Help with program please

Thank you both Steve's. I will carefully consider schedules. My bubble squeeze has gone from 30min to 2 hours over the last couple of years, perhaps it excessive. You mentioned the second schedule could cause thermal shock. This is actually the program that is set on the kiln which is a worry. I wil...

Re: Follow in devit question! Help with program please

Thanks Stephen. I have never vented before, I will look into it and give it a go. I still find it odd that clear capped glass always comes out fine but if the top piece is coloured I get devit. I would prefer not to use thinfire but when I started fusing, using kiln wash, the kiln wash stuck to the ...

Re: kiln adhesive paper

Glue works well for me. It just stops it shifting on being transported to kiln. After it's in the kiln it doesn't matter. Doesn't need to be set as the tackiness just stops a landslide :)

Re: Follow in devit question! Help with program please

Hi yes rapid cool and I use thinfire. The pieces are just 9cm. I don't think it's a cleaning issue as I am thorough and clear capped pieces come out well.

Thanks.

Follow in devit question! Help with program please

Hi, Further to my previous post. I am having problems with devit on sky blue and spring green transparant glass, it shows up more on the the green I believe as I back with white which illuminates the glass (and the problem). When I fire on my bubble squeeze program the glass has no bubbles but devit...

Re: devit more likely with spring green?

Sorry for misinformation - I went back and had a better look at the glass today. The green has noticeably more 'scum' on the surface, but if I look carefully at the blue it has devit too. I think the brightness of the green just shows it more...a lot more. The next batch should be ok as I am not usi...

devit more likely with spring green?

I have a quick question. A while ago I made a load of coasters. I use a long bubble squeeze. I know that holding too long at certain temperatures can cause devit. My question is the sky blue came out fine, but the spring green was covered in devit. Is the green more prone to devit? Both colours were...

Re: Light box for display

Alternately, put the current partner on eBay and look for a wood-worker. :D Jen Good idea, but he does pay the rent :wink: I could have a go at making one, but woodwork isn't my strong point. I have seen some affordable (I wouldn't say cheap) lightboxes advertised for example this one designed for ...

Light box for display

Hi, I was thinking of buying a light box (or a few even) to display glass bowls, plates and suncatchers at fairs. I see over in the US there are plenty of options for displaying glass, but here in the UK I can't find much. Has anyone used the cheapish lightboxes to display their work? have you any p...
