Brock, is this the one? The Sound Garden near a park that starts with an M? I only remember because the band Sound Garden got the name from this sculpture. Big Chris Cornell fan. :) To find the real name of the park go to a Seattle tourist site and it should show up. I was just there, but am having ...

I've been following this thread with great interest. In a few days when my maglesses are done, I'll be firing a blank of BE silver irid on black. Much of the silver will be etched off later, but if those pits happen...... :evil: I did something the other day which may or may not be related, but the ...

Seattle Pottery lists a silver-gray Hanovia luster. The site doesn't have many pictures though. Would silver mica work? Pearl-Ex makes a silver.

Wow, thanks everybody! :D I just got back from the family party and my niece loved hers. I'm happy when a 14 year old girl likes anything . Jim, below is a pic (another bad one) showing the attachment. All the stuff is from Fire Mountain. The cord is the silky stuff, and the metal parts just get cri...

Would like feedback/suggestions on these potmelt cabs

I just finished drilling these this morning for a present I need for tonight. The present is the one that's finished with cord. I was wondering what you all with experience thought of them. And since I haven't sold anything (yet), do they seem to have any saleability? What it is is a potmelt sliced ...

Thanks Bob! That's so close to home I can commute. Who knew? Cool. I went to a Dan Fenton class up in Buffalo and it was fantastic. I learned quite a bit, he's a great guy and very talented as well. When you're on your own with painting on glass though I've found it's a bit more difficult than I tho...

I took a class on traditional kiln fired glass painting from Kenneth Leap a couple of weeks ago. His work is awesome Bob, sorry I don't know about the kiln, but where did you take the class? And how did you find out about it? I've looked at his site before, but didn't see anything about classes. I'...

I have a bit of confusion about the CFM's on compressors. What do those letters stand for anyway? I have a small 2HP compressor that says 2.6 SCFM @ 90psi. I've been looking to get a small blasting cabinet, but this compressor doesn't seem to be enough even for that, according to the specs on the sm...

Wasser also has a gold on black that's a thin coating. I did a small test piece for jewelry and it did crack some. But then I didn't want it to of course. :roll:

But there IS an art to cooking chicken, most importantly the annealing cycle. At full fuse, remove the bird from the oven and anneal at room temperature up to 30 minutes, depending on the size of the project. Annealing is necessary because the pressure from the heat of the coils during cooking push...

This may not help with your question, I don't know anything about rigidizers, I'm quite new at this, but I made my barrette molds from Ceramaguard. I cut the shape of the barrettes that I get and stack them together, so I can slump one or many at the same time depending how many forms I stack horizo...

I Googled 'light refraction' and came up with many.

It's just white, but in certain lights you can see glints of orange and reds and purples. Like m...

Becca you should be able to sandblast those marks off if they are on the surface. If you sandwihed the tape, then you are stuck with it. 'Stuck' with it. Punny :) No, it's not sandwiched. I tried to keep the rim from getting a ghost line. Got it anyway, plus the tape ghost. boo And my sandblaster i...

Just out of curiosity, what brand glue stick did you use? I've got about 4 different kinds around here. Some with disappearing colorant and some plain.
I tried the scotch tape on a clear blue rim, and got a perfect outline complete with those little saw marks from the teeny cutter thing. :roll:

Kiln furniture for small pattern bars?

I was wondering if it would be possible to use the hole in kiln furniture for small pattern bars and millefiori/murrini like stuff? What I was thinking is to either kilnwash the inside and outside or line it with thin fire and fill with glass, stand on end and fire like that. Hopefully producing wha...

This company has all the stuff for powder coating. My DH bought the set up with the lamp but hasn't used it yet. He's looking to set up an oven as well. I've ordered from them too, airbrush and stuff, and they have very fast shipping. http://www.eastwoodco.com/department.asp?dep_key1=pwct&SKW=FHCOAT
