Frit size choices

When I layer glass for stained glass pieces, I fill in the gaps with powder. I buy the powder rather than try to make it, usually. It works. But I wonder if there would be any advantage to using a higher size frit. Would fine or larger work better? Some criteria I would consider are: Can a greater v...

Re: gasket material

The counterweight, if a coffee can, should have some vintage cachet. You can build one with a Costco or Kroger generic can that you have around, but best results are achieved if you eventually score an old Maxwell House or Hills Bros, Chock Full of Nuts.....you know what I mean.

Lady's Slipper

This is a new piece. Bullseye, Lambert's, Blenko glass. Lady's Slippers petals are fused and sandcarved Bullseye. The border has ramps (wild leeks from our region) made from flattened softdrink bottles that had lettering on their shoulders. http://burtglass.com/images/McLandrich_Ladys_Slipper_Web.jpg

Re: plaster silica

I just used silica that's at least five years old with some new #1 pottery plaster, 50x50 and it set and dried nicely. The silica was stored in pretty stable conditions in a plastic bag.

Re: painting crisp, even thickness lines

Terry, I airbrush transparent enamels, even for lines through a resist. Yes, it requires commitment to say the least. For black lines, drawing, I almost always freehand trace with a rigger. I trace with paint prepared with D1368 water friendly medium. I go slow. If I were to try to do straight lines...

Re: painting crisp, even thickness lines

I second what Brad suggested. It is relatively easy to use two blades taped together to cut through vinyl paint mask resist. It would be unrealistic to attempt it on a three dimensional surface but on flat glass without too much texture it works. I like Oracal 813 resist because I can see my cuts, s...

Re: enamel suggestions

Airbrushing fusemaster transparents: one of the most effective techniques for introducing lead monosilicate into your studio atmosphere. I do it all the time (not with fusemaster, but their equivalent). Be careful Peter please.
