Need tips on selling wholesale

I have been doing the art show circuit for 14 years and have only sold to stores when they come in my booth.

Soaking and razor blades is what I use. Don't try to burn off in kiln, any glue that wasn't cleaned off will leave traces on finished bottle

Hmmm, that's the bubble squeeze going slow from 1100 to fusing temp. The only thing I can suggest is maybe holding longer at the 1100, 20 or 30 min.

I do the bottles separate, can fit 5 to 6 at a time depending on size of the bottle. Clear ones are blah, and they don't sell, neither do the amber. People seem to like the green and the blue the best.

I tried the new schedule and I'm not getting bubbles, maybe because I fire on thin fire. Have you tried holding longer at 1100? Ramping full power from 1100 up cut 1 hour off the total time.

Drop ring question

I did a fluted 7" drop ring, and one side slipped down more then the other so it is an uneven drop. What causes this to happen.
