Re: which glue for pendants

Search the archives on "E6000", "Loctite" and "Epoxy" -- there is a ton of information in past threads. - Paul I think I read in here that Welders (industrial) had the best results for gluing bails to pendants. So which do I use? Welders or E6000? Thanks to all you pros for the wealth of information...

open face casting in reusable clay mold

Any reason not to make a reusable clay mold for shallow, open face casting (no undercuts)?

Re: COE of non-tested BE?

I have a bunch of scrap BE that I'd like to use for fusing. Does the non-tested BE tend to be COE90, or is it more random? Specifically I'm looking at 0301 (pink opal) but also wondering in general. (I know, I should test it myself ... but the magless deadline is getting closer!) Thanks -- Marilyn ...

How long to get rid of the tiny bubbles?

Thanks.


To squeeze out bubbles I go from 1050F to 1250F @ 75F/hour. I then hold for 60 minutes at 1250F.

That is probably excessive -- but it has been 100% reliable for me.

vermiculite is rumoured to be almost as bad as asbestos when it comes to dust control. it comes from the same mines and may have asbestos in it. i think you might want to encapsulate it before use.

Be careful putting unknown metals into the kiln.

Some (anything galvanized, zinc ?) give off toxic gases at high temps.

I have three shelves in the kiln stacked with about 8-10 inches apart. The kiln is side and bottom fired.

When you say you are using three shelves do you mean side by side or stacked?

If stacked, your schedule will need to go much slower than with a non-stacked arrangement in order to maintain evenity.
