Re: Some Enamel Pendants

Hi Dana. I just put the standard glue-on bail on them like the one in this picture, but silver-plated. If I do anything more elaborate, it increases my price too much in the galleries and hurts my sales.

Re: Some More Detailed Photos of the Enamels

Don, these are about 1.25 inches in diameter and are going to be pendants. The way I apply the enamels and the firing give a tremendous amount of detail to small pieces.

Some Enamel Pendants

Just opened the kiln after firing last night and thought I would share a quick photo of some of the enamel cabs. Not the best lighting and not the best focus, but, hey, it's Saturday morning and too much trouble to set-up the photo tent....

Re: bubbles

Bullseye considers the micro bubbles a "feature" of the handmade glass aspect. I think they also consider the "runs" on the top surface the same, but those certainly cause me a lot of problems when trying to match the gradient in dichroic glass.

Re: Concerning firing enamels

Hi Havi. What a pain the virus is, even without being infected! I now understand and appreciate what you are trying to do. For the red ink, I am fairly certain adding frit will not help much, if any. However, if you can leave the red ink open for a while or transfer it to a larger, more open contain...

Re: Concerning firing enamels

Hi Havi. You seem to have several potential problems, the first being that you do not have an accurate known temperature in one of your kilns, the one where you had the best results. You did not specify what enamels you are using either, and the range you fired of about 125 degrees between the firin...

Re: How to Fire Dichroic and Retain Colour

You may have already seen this about dichroic from A&A Products or others. There is a test strip near the bottom of the page. http://www.aaproducts.com/DICHROI-TECHNICAL-INFO.html You should expect the shift. If you want green, start with yellow. If you want light blue, start with pale green.......

Re: Drop with Dropring

Hi Jan. I primarily make jewelry, never any ring drops. Perhaps someone else can give you first-hand knowledge. If I understand your question about the layers, you must first fire all of the layers together before doing the drop. Otherwise, each glass will drop separately. Since the drop temperature...

Re: sanding edges of drilled holes

Check out Lopacki Diamonds and ebay seller LAU*** Both good sellers of diamond products. Barry Daniel Lopacki no longer sells drill bits. When I contacted him last year, he recommended LAU***, and I purchased from them. Their bits are good with lots of diamond, but the wire is so long that the 1mm ...

Re: sanding edges of drilled holes

Leila, one trick I use, recommended by a lapidarist, is to drill the first hole all the way through with a 1mm bit. Next, use a 2mm bit and drill about 60% through from the side which will be showing when the piece is finished. Then flip the piece over and drill about 60% through from the backside. ...

Replacement of Perfect Fire III Relays

The controller (Perfect Fire III) for my 20-year old Jen-Ken kiln (PFG-24-E, 240V) started giving errors when initially energized. I have replaced the elements several times in both the lid and the side, but the controller still had the original relays. The controller has two relays, and I successfu...

Re: metal panels

We have a local commercial hvac company which has all metal fabrication equipment as well as sheets of various metals. They have sheared sheets of theirs for me in the past. I believe you are near Knoxville, so there should be several similar companies there.

Re: cremains pieces

Try to connect with funeral homes and see if they are interested in providing this option to clients. They already are marketing items like urns, so a piece of jewelry might also be of interest. Of course, you will then be in "business" and need samples, schedules for delivery, and sharing...

A final quick photo of the final cabs for this batch of enamels. The cabs are just sitting on the bails while I try to decide what to finally use.
