I heard a rumour that Youghiogheny has some float compatible colors, but I don't know anything about them. They are not listed on their website. Seems to me that "float compatible" glass would be pointless. How do you make a glass compatible with all float when float isn't always compatible with fl...

Paul, I've got the filters that uvp uses in their lights. In fact, I supply them. If you want to make your own I'll send you a piece. Glass is Corning/Kopp 9863 UV transmitting/ visible absorbing. It's very dense in color & you need a pretty intense light source to get any light through it. Let me ...

Re: Float, enamels and tin

Paul It sounds like tin to me. Tin makes a brownish color. A company called UVP makes the short wave UV flashlight. They sell for about $40. I believe that HIS glassworks sells them now. I have seen the exact same light for as much as $180 (Bohle special ordered). My light comes with a purple filte...

Float, enamels and tin

I fired four pieces of float last night. All pieces were cut from the same sheet. The enamels came out of the same jars. Two of the pieces ended up with some different colors than the other pair -- with some darker, brownish shades that seem like obvious color reactions. The only explanation I can c...

Re: Ceramic Mold

Newbie question... I have looked into the archives and wanted to claify. Can I use some of the bisque molds they would have at those you "paint it and fire here" stores? I would be slumping at a max of 1300. I know I would need to make sure the bottom where the glass would go into should be smoth a...

Hi Paul! Thanks for this. I have been trying to buy a light box from a store that keeps forgetting to place the order! Did you need to do any editing in order to get the objects to appear cut out and placed on a uniform background, or were they shot against the same colour background as on the web ...

Nice, simple setup. Three suggestions: 1. Use a polarizing filter to reduce or eliminate the glare. 2. Move the piece being photographed farther from the background or use a larger aperture (i.e., smaller f-stop number) or both with the objective of letting the background go out of focus (so the cr...

New Photo Setup

I invested some time and $ this weekend into a better photo setup. I used the plans that are located here: http://www.pbase.com/wlhuber/light_box The only thing I changed was I made it bigger (mine is about 30 inches in each directions). I'm using "Daylight" halogens. The whole deal (pvc, lights, bu...

I'm beginning to wonder if I can really see it :-k Why can I see it? Hey Jackie - Do you have a Yahoo account and does it remember your login? If so, that could be why you can get to it where others can't. Or, it could be that the kiln gods have joined forces with the computer gods -- in which case...

I have the window and I'm glad I paid for it. I've been told it will eventually crud up -- but no sign of that yet.

I love the fact I can watch what is going on in the kiln without opening it. It's eliminates the Heisenberg Principle for fusing :)

Rough grind is with 80 Grit, then 180, 400, 600 and then cerium. Pumice would help after the 600 and before the cerium. This is all with silicon carbide grit and water drip. Diamonds would be nice but costly and you need lots of running water, which I don't have in my studio. Thanks Ron. Is the gri...

Just curious what type of bowl edges you're after Paul. I don't remember if you have a wbs of not? If you're after an edge like this bowl you need the flat lap grinder. I call this one a flat grind, very time consuming if you polish it to a mirror finish. It takes more than an hour of hard work to ...

Okay - still looking for a solution for bowl edges. I looked at the flat lap plans on hisglassworks.com -- it is straight forward enough but I'm not sure where to get the 23.5" x 0.5" steel circle. I'd also like to hear who has experience with one of these: http://www.hisglassworks.com/pages/air658....

Re: Newbie Questions

I understand the basics of glass being compatable. But can you use small amounts of decorative glass such as millifiorni (sp) or dichroic. The rule for making beads is no more than 15% of non-compatible glass. Nope. I've seen even small amounts of incompatible powder cause surface cracking. You mig...

Re: Critique, Please

I've been fusing for about 9 months. I've mostly been spending this time experimenting -- And, of course, the more I learn, the more I relish the journey. I think it's time to gather some candid critique about my journey so far. I've been exploring rhythm and translucency -- using frit and powders....
