Re: Flat Lap

China is interesting. A couple of years ago I ordered some round pendant blanks and got oval ones. Last year I ordered some different metal findings and could only use about half due to permanent tarnishing and poor metal finishing. I just ordered several items which are supposed to ship within six ...

Re: Flat Lap

How about this...probably not the strongest attraction, but may be enough with all the surface area of the grinding disk. https://www.amazon.com/Rust-Oleum-247596-Magnetic-Primer-30/dp/B003ZW7XL4/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIton44NO07QIVF4-GCh27ggwjEAAYAiAAEgK5_fD_BwE&hvadid=1778070...

Re-worked Pendant

One of the things I like about fused glass is that it is sometimes possible to modify a piece years later. In this case, the attached pendants did not sell in their original configuration, so I enameled them and re-fired. I like them much better now, so maybe they will sell or not..., in any event I...

Re: Reading COE

Hi Jan. When I read your question, I thought this should be easy to find with Google. It was not, because the actual measurement has been lost to the reduced reporting of 90, 96, 82. etc. I finally found the answer in an earlier post on the board: http://warmglass.com/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?t=41565 Lo...

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. ...
