Re: Wire Melt/Kiln Wash Failure

Just want to throw a question out there. Why do people fire so high on a wire melt? When I do mine I go to 1550. Virtually all of the glass is down at 1500. I drop onto 1/8 fiber. I hold it at 1550 for about 20 minutes and take a peak. I currently use 1/2" stainless screen propped up on some fi...

Re: Screening frit

I made a simple set of screen sifters. I bought 4 cheap ($1) picture frames at Michaels and hot glued different size screening that I had (largest is 5mm). You could also make some small wood boxes and do the same - but the picture frames were fast. I stack them on top of each other and sift the cru...

Re: Schedule help and other questions.

You can use thin on thick without any problems. I do it all the time. Which model Evenheat do you have? Does it have elements in the the top and side? Your schedule does seem long.

Re: kiln adhesive paper

Aleene's Clear Gel Tacky Glue works for me. Exposed residue on opals might leave a haze so use sparingly. I use a fine paintbrush to brush on for small pieces. I have had problems lately with hairspray showing up on fused opals, so I stopped using it.

Re: Sanding edges of cold glass

I use a fine bit on my wizard grinder and it doesn't chip. I use it to grind the edges of dichroic and it doesn't effect the finish at all. Very smooth and light. 1/8" is a lot to hand sand (IMHO). Several years ago I experimented with trizact discs on a bench wheel (to get a polished finish) b...

Re: Drilling or Adding copper wire???

I don't know what the sound of the chimes is when you hang them from copper wire but when you drill through the glass, the sound is the same as if you are clinking glass together. The smaller the chime pieces, the lighter the sound (like toasting with crystal glasses).

Re: Kiln Heat in Room

My studio is in a section of my basement (15' x 21' with an open rafter (no sheetrock) 8' ceiling). My largest kiln is a 25 x 41 coffin kiln. Radiant heat does escape when I'm running it and it does warm up the room. In the summer I'll open up the windows and I have a large fan hanging in front of i...

Re: It cracked AGAIN!

Most likely, this is incompatibility caused by prolonged hold at high temps (1700F/925C). Many Bullseye and Spectrum colors will shift COE after long soaks at high temps. What would be considered a "long" soak? I have done several wire melts recently with no problems. I am soaking at 30 m...

Re: Effetre 104coe Bullseye 90 coe rods

I only have Coe 104 Rods. Most of them are Moretti. They generally run 1/4" in diameter, though a few are only 1/8" (the pinks and dense black) that I have.

Re: credit where credit is due

You make craftsmen sound like machines. Everyone wants credit/appreciation for a job well done. Maybe it won't be formal, I understand that, but talking about people's work like it's nothing it insensitive.

I know human nature. People like to be appreciated for the work they do. And I know a lot of tradespeople. My father and grandfather were tradesmen - and damn good ones.
