Thanks all for responding. I took a look at SW's site -- which only exposed additional ignorance on my part :) I my primary use will be bowl edges. What grits are people using?

What is SW's website please. Mucho, mucho gracias! Susan http://swdiamond.freeyellow.com Be warned -- they use a fee internet host that pops up all kinds of ads and more.

Can you talk a little bit about your technique? I know sandblasting has been mentioned, but I'm stumped about the rest. One way or t'other, it is an evocative piece. Would love to see more! The "generic" process is: 1) Apply a thin layer of color to a sheet of glass. This is typically mica, glass p...

Re: slumping help please!

Another newby question: I tried slumping into an 8" scalloped bowl mold and peeked at the end of the hold at 1250, then added 5 min. four times...so the total hold was 25 min. The result is a nice shallow, scalloped bowl, but it should have slumped deeper...another 1/2"+ or so. :?: Would you sugges...

new work - the hand

Something new from the kiln. Though small (10" x 7") this piece is somewhat of a big deal for me -- this is the first piece I've done where the technique and style is something that I enjoy enough (both creating and looking at) to start building that ever elusive "cohesive body of work" :) http://ww...

Re: Help with slump, please!

If you haven't bought Brad's book (link above to the right) then I highly recommend it. It covers the items you are asking about -- with the benefit of lots of color picks. Glass for fusing is expensive. A good book (or basic class) will more than pay for itself in saved glass :) Brad, btw, is our h...

I am not a fluent speaker but I would translate it as starchart but I wonder what a real italian would say. Would it be tabelle delle stelle (which would be more fun to say)? Or do they have a whole 'nuther word. Do you mean it to relate to astrology or astronomy because there might be a difference...

parlate italiano

I'm trying to name a series of work. I like the sound of the following name -- and I think it translates appropriately -- but would appreciate it if someone who speaks Italian can tell me how they would translate this back to English:

tabelle della stella

thanks,
Paul

Brock, Paul...does the free download have a Mac version? E there doesn't need to be one, since mac's are immune to almost every one of the latest versions of malware. True -- but it has nothing to do with having better technology. A mac is less likely to be hit with a virus because mac's don't have...

borax on enamels

So I have new work that uses enamels (Thompson) on float. I've got very light devit in the non-enamel spots.

If I spray some borax will it have any negative effects on the enamel?

Thanks,

Re: Bullseye sample set - how reliable is COE?

Anyone tried fusing bits of their Bullseye fusing sample set? The disclaimer says the samples are not tested for fusing (the colours representing the post-fuse colour of the real stuff) - but I'm tempted to use the thin bits and keep the thick ones for colour reference. Is it worth the risk? Peg An...
