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: 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: 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/\.
