Re: frit lace rescue

as long as the paper is not torn or disturbed and you can not see the kiln shelf, you can reuse it.

Re: Freeze and Fuse firing cycle

I also use an old electric tooth brush held onto the side of the mold.
This vibrates the powder and gets all of the excess water out.

Re: Glass/Cash Survey

Sometimes you are NOT charging enough. When I was doing shows, I ran into a situation than I was charging $4.00 for some coasters. One of the vendors told me to raise the price. I asked her "why" they are not selling now. Well I tried and raised the price to $9.00 and sold every one. Who k...

Re: Cracked during heat up

It does look to me that it is an incompatibly problem. Maybe some of the glass shifted in the combing cycle. I have had that happen to me before. There is a lot more than COE involved in the heating process. I suggest that you stick to the same manufacturer. I also suggest that you read the BE artic...

Re: bottom heat kiln.

As long as you are having it built, why don't you have a switch installed so you can turn the bottom elements off?

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.

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