Re: HELP - Picking the right kiln

I've had an Evenheat 23" for several years. It's very reliable and I've been very satisfied. I really l iike their Rampmaster controller, also; much easier to program than the Bartlett that came with my other kiln, IMO.

Emma, I like your idea: I also do not have the patience for sewing of any kind (I throw scissors!) but love quilt patterns. I agree, the 3 layer thickness would be difficult to slump much in that small a piece. Go for bigger next time, and review the tutorial on this site about reducing the bubbles....

Try the concrete sealant, or check with a local tile store for a grout sealer. Sealants don't last forever and will need to be re-applied periodically. However, it is probably the cold weather which is making the pieces pop out, so bring it indoors for the winter.

Glass crates (free from the shop where I used to work). We cut about a foot off the end of the 4' Spectrum crates, and used the cut-off portions to make a floor and interior shelves of various heights to accomodate different size pieces. The crates are set on end with plywood fastened to the top to ...

Slumping glass over clay flowerpots is easy, interesting and inexpensive. The finished product can be used for votives or tea lights, oil lamps, potpourri holders etc. There are a lot of textured clear glasses available which are not expensive glasses and the combination of the textures and the fold...

Arrow Springs also sells copper tubing for beads...1/8" outer diameter, and 1/2", 5/8", 3/4" and 1" lengths (or a mixed package)...you might experiment with something like this.

The toothpick suggestion is interesting...I'll have to try it out, too.

My experience has been that there's tempered and then there's tempered...sometimes you can go 1/32" to 1/16" deep and be ok. Some glass explodes if you make 3-4 frosting passes over it. The problem is...you don't know which is which when you start out. I'd recommend learning shading...it will give y...

Welcome to fusing, Robi! Get Brad's Warm Glass book...I wish I hadn't waited so long to get my copy.

Barbara, This mold was either made or marketed by Optimum Glass in Colorado. I don't know if they are still in business, but some suppliers still carry the rose mold.

Definitely let them know, and try to do it in a direct meeting with the director so you can express what you've posted here.

I glued some fused pieces of dichro to a t-shirt several years ago using a product which I believe was "Jewel Glue" by Aleene (similar to their "Tacky Glue" but specifically for gluing jewels to fabric). Easy to use, not smelly like silicone. It has held up well (I still wear the shirt occasionally ...

Brenda,

You might contact Bullseye Glass (click at top of page). They offer a "Painting with Light" class which sounds like what you are wanting to do. If Portland is not practical for you, they might be able to suggest someone who could help you.

I still have mine (bought it at a glass conference in Las Vegas or Reno...can't remember) and use it occasionally. It is very fast, you can't include any metal (because it goes in the microwave), fusing space is extremely limited, and it's incosistent in firing (if you want to make a pair of earring...

Hi! This is my experience so far with using brass rod.

The pieces of rod are about 5" long, ...

Vernelle, try fiber board (like Kaiser Lee board) covered with Thinfire. Set a 1" x 4" x 4" piece on edge, cover it with Thinfire and slump over that (the Thinfire makes it easier to remove the card holder in case it bends down too tightly again the mold.
