Re: FIRE POLISHING

Myself, I would go to an 800 grit before fire polish.
If you have the means, then go all of the way through cerium oxide.
This will give you a surface that is equal to float glass.

Re: Fiber Kiln/Shelf

Bullseye sells ABSOLUTELY the flattest kiln shelf out there. Shipping cost might be a problem, but I think in the long run it would be worth it. Shelves from a ceramic supply store may or may not be absolutely flat. A flat shelf is really necessary for a lot of different kinds of firings. Just my $0...

Re: Silver foil & leaf

Thanks for posting the results. That is one of the reasons that this board is so darned good.
People like you that have a question that needs answered and then discover a cure on their own, then publish the results for the rest of us.
Thank you so much.

Re: Silver foil & leaf

There is a product called "Tarnex" that works wonders.
Just dip the silver in and the tarnish comes off in about 1 or 2 seconds at the most.
Ten just immerse in hot water , pull out, let dry and you are good to go.

Re: ridigizer with fiberboard

OK, thanks Kevin
I will try the fiberboard.
Will I need to apply a glass separator?

Re: zyp coating

Hi Brad The other reason is that I am wanting to try a couple of techniques that thin fire won't work with. These are some stack firings that consist of stacking 13 layers of glass and then have them spread out. I am afraid that thinfire would get embedded in the bottom layer. And because I don't ha...

Re: zyp coating

Hi Brad.
Because I have developed a bad shoulder that prevents me from lifting anything heavy.
My mullite shelves are just to heavy to lift to scrape and lift out of the kiln.

Re: metal panels

Alaska copper and brass has several outlets. I would give them a search.
They handle all kinds of sheet, rod and pipe metals.

Re: How to keep parts aligned during fusing?

Oh, BTW, Did Kevin say "be sure to keep notes?" This is an absolute necessity if you want to repeat a process at a later date.
Or to modify a. result
Not to seem boring,be sure to keep notes, be sure to keep notes, be sure to keep notes.

Re: How to keep parts aligned during fusing?

Think on it for a minute.
What happens during the fusing process?
The glass gets SOFT.
Remember that gravity is a LAW and NOT just a good idea/\.
