Re: All "eyes" on my website

Thanks guys :) Based this one on an optical illusion I saw painted on the side of building when traveling in Florida as a child. I'll never forget the creepy clown eyes following me down the street as I passed by.

Re: Accepting Credit Cards

Thank you for your great input, Cynthia. I already have an Android, so I have no excuse NOT to give it a whirl. As my hubby already pointed out (numerous times), I can always try Square and still hang on to my regular provider until I'm certain it will work for me. Just one more question for you Squ...

Re: Where?

Or, those already in the fused glass community who have no qualms about stealing designs. This happens WAY too much . . . Take out the words "fused glass" and insert any other profession (ceramic, painting, computer programing, political, jouralistic, music, poetic, etc.) and it still hol...

Re: Where?

At least here the kilnforming seem sto follow the track of tiffany. First it is a hobby fad. Then some want to advance to professionals. For a professional to get butter on bread, (s)he starts teaching. That's the business. It also erodes them arkets for mediocre products. Some people however get o...

Re: Flat Lap Disk Question

I had this problem with some of the new discs I purchased through Rio Grande. It was definitely water creeping under the disc. I solved it by; 1) Ever so slightly bending the disc in the middle so it sat absolutely flush (hold with fingertips around he outer edge and push very gently in the middle w...

Re: best digital camera

Don't forget the benefits of a good photo program like PhotoShop. I've spent hours trying to get the perfect lighting, exposure, background, shadow, etc. only to find I could manipulate a lot of these in my photo program. PhotoShop Elements is reasonable too. As far a camera goes, I would get a unit...

You can also get a nice red by fusing clear candy apple red coating side down over black glass.

Just a thought... is there anything preventing one from running their own card monthly for $20 in the off season just to prevent the fee? Nah, what a pain! Me thinks I'll look into the Global service mentioned in the other thread!

smooth undersides can be achieved using a flat lapping machine. The piece is ground with finer and finer grits and then polished with cerium oxide. I got an 8" grinder from Hisglassworks.com as a Christmas gift and it raised the level of my workmanship considerably. With practice, it is possible to ...

Judy, It's a Pro-slicer. Most lapidary suppliers carry this or something similiar (i.e. eloxite.net, Diamond Pacific, even Rio Grande). A lapidary blade is very thin steel with diamond particles encrusted on the rim. It's intended for your expensive stones that one cannot afford to lose to a chunky ...
