So maybe Cheryl should do an article for a well-distributed glass magazine entitled, "The Biggest Lie In Fusing". And then proceed to give some history that is actually accurate. Then we can send copies of the article to all the liars. What do you think? :idea:

I was told that white out has some health warnings, that it might do something with the brain or nerves. Anyone know about this? We used white out and had great results on the surface of glass and even on the bottom. Since the warning of hazards with the use I stopped using it. Health/hazard warnin...

It's a good idea to use a mold release if you have undercuts to consider.... we use fabric softener.... I think Downy brand...which brand makes a difference. As mentioned, don't use anything with a petroleum base.... I still remember that mold years ago where Michael used Vaseline. Oh, my..... out o...

Hi Bev, Try fire polishing without an overspray...I've noticed that it tends to trap that scummy look. Patty Too late on this piece since the overspray is already applied, once it's there, it's there. Sandblasting seems the only logical solution here. As to the red glass, I'm wondering if you got a...

I had quite a trial finding zinc oxide locally when I was experimenting with silverpoint. A pharmacy finally found a jar in their basement! Sheesh.

I was hit up by them two years ago and after nosing around, was told (off the cuff) that it was a great place for wealthy people to buy glass cheap from famous artists. LOL. I took that as a compliment.... and didn't send anything. (As an aside, I notice they don't solicit the same artists from year...

Did you check samples of Janssen & Buscher, the lead recommended for Lamberts Glass? The regular stuff has a higher heart to accomodate the mouthblown glasses. Also, Cascade Metals out of Canada sells a high heart lead. I think many of the wholesale suppliers stock both of the above. We get J&B from...

Or consider learning how to cast your scrap silver.... cuttlebone castings are cheap and fun and might even make nice embellishments for fused glass bowls and dichroic jewelry. :idea:

The key to this discussion is the notion of "perceived value" The public does perceive that diamonds are worth more than Cz's and gold more than silver. They also are impressed by sparkle and size. Dichro sells well because it has sparkle, not because it is expensive for glass artists to purchase. ...
