Re: Ques on corroded stainless steel mold

Hi RandiC,

Your question peaked my curiosity as I have a corroded pendant chain which I believe to be a SS.

Here's what I found:

Re: Mixing it up.

The solution should be simple: elect a federal government that acknowledges the need for a rapid transition to renewable energy. The states are doing their best despite the roadblocks and diversions caused by the deliberate obfuscation, lack of funding and inaction at the top. What's more difficult...

Re: Board sponsors

Thank you, Brad, for keeping the board alive despite the lack of sponsors. It's much appreciated. I use it a lot and frequently review old threads for information I currently need. I hope it continues to be here for those who appreciate it. Thanks again!

Re: Mixing it up.

It's only going to get worse, much of it attributable to the updraft caused by the fossil-fuel loving big vacuum at the top.

It's a subtle trick. There's a shortage of brides in China so that's a sublimal proposal. Think very carefully before you accept. :?

Re: White spirit

With Liquin it dries hard quickly. Put the paint precisely where you want it and jump back. Don't use it for matting or subtractive painting. Stick to traditional gum arabic for that.

Re: White spirit

Hi Jan, I just wrote a long reply which I lost because I took a short cut to get a web address. without first saving the post. Essentially, the enamels you mention, Revell Enamels appear to be for cold painting by hobbyists on models etc. They are not suitable for kiln firing. There's a lot of infor...

Re: White spirit

Jan, I didn't comment on putting mineral spirits in the kiln because I've never done that. I do know it's highly flammable, even rags that have been used with mineral spirits, or Turpentine, remain highly flammable, even when they have dried ,so have to be immersed in water until safely disposed of....

Re: What can I do to save this piece?

Interesting piece Havi. I can't think of any way to protect it other than fusing it to a thicker piece but there are lots of far more experienced members who may have better ideas. If you could control what is going to happen in the kiln when pressing the glass you may be able to make interesting, a...

Re: White spirit

White spirits is the chemical equivalent to Turpentine, a natural tree sap. It's called Mineral Spirits in Oz. I've heard it referred to as Mineral Turpentine, too. Use it for cleaning house-painting brushes when you've used oil paint. Don't use it on your Badger Blender! It's too harsh. Clean that ...

Re: looking for a clamping solution

Love this DIY stuff. Some years ago, before the WGB meltdown, we had a lively DIY thread where members contributed their plans, photos and suggestions for making equipment from scratch or recycling and modifying existing items, saving lots of cash

Maybe this thread could trigger its rebirth?

Re: enamel suggestions

Hi Peter, Did you ever find the cable-pulling gel? Here's a link to an Oz company that advertises it: https://www.specialisedforce.com.au/product/type/cable-pulling-lubricant They seem to be in every major city with products probably distributed all over the country.

Re: bottom heat kiln.

Thanks, Sharol.

I've heard of, but don't know anything about Jen-Ken kilns but I can check their website.

I'm sure the technology has improved since the disaster I described before. Good luck with the new kiln.

Hi Sharol, I'm curious about the 'Hard Fibre Board' you mention, having a bad experience with a fibre kiln: see my post in your earlier thread: http://www.warmglass.com/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=43134&p=362735#p362735 Do you have a link to the material, please. It would certainly cut down o...
