Topic: does anyone have an ED HOY account

One litre of Hotline pate de verre and fusers glue costs under $5.00 wholesale. 4 litres (roughly one gallon) would weigh around 10 pounds. A $20.00 sale is a very small one, especially for wholesale. It's far less than Ed Hoy's minimum order. The definition of wholesale varies from place to place, ...

To me, the irony about the whole board format argument is that I read the posts by email (and did on the old board, too). As a result, the board format doesn't really matter to me from a user perspective (administration is a different issue) -- in either case, I just get emails and just click on the...

There are a number of different approaches. The simplest is to use Java to disable the right click. This can be broken by someone who really wants the images, but it will will work for many people and would have probably worked in Judy's situation. Here's what it does (try right clicking on an image...

It's hard to tell for sure, but I think both. You definitely can't clean it off.

Re: Vote on board format

Does return to the old board format mean: Keeping this site but having only a main forum and a classified forum to match the format of the old board? Or are you thinking of dropping this site program and returning to the old site program? The second option. I've been asked by several people to drop...

There are several issues with this bill. For starters, it's not as simple as it sounds. There are lots of restrictions, including: work must be created in last 18 months value must be supported by an written appraisal, filed with tax form donation must be to certain non-profit entities, such as muse...

I wonder if you can sell the piece to your spouse and have them donate it?? If you claim the income from the sale, then I suppose your spouse could claim the donation. But what would that accomplish? Regarding the value of the donation, Marty is right. In the US, the IRS only allows artists to dona...

Given the fairly large quantity of newcomer posts we've been having lately, it certainly makes sense to have a newcomer board. That seems straightforward, but I'm not sure how other boards would work (or how to segment things). Anybody have any suggestions?

There are overglazes made for slumping (e.g. Back Fire) that have higher lead content (I believe) and melt at lower temperature. They are intended for smoothing the back of a bowl during slumping. I don't know if they would leave a clear vitreous finish on the top surface. They don't. My experience...

The window is great for the first few years, but eventually goes cloudy and becomes useless. Mine took about five years to go from "best thing since sliced bread" to "just crumbs".

I suspect how long the window lasts depends on how much glue and other organic materials you fire.

Coefficient of expansion is a major consideration for furnace glass workers, too. Most people start with a batch of a known COE and add other chemicals to achieve a final product that works at the desired COE. Mixing unknown scraps together is less common than you would think, and doing it to achiev...

What kind of fiber paper? Assuming we're not talking about thinfire (which never needs to be pre-fired), but are talking about standard fiber paper formulations, then here are the guidelines I would use. If I'm using a small amount, like for a hole in a bead or to line a dam, then I would not prefir...

The idea that we need better teachers isn't a new one -- Lundstrom's first book (which Bullseye wrote) has an appendix on teaching a basic fusing course.

Brad et al........how do you use your cheapie free glasses as a polaring lense. My understanding is that you put the fused glass in question on the polarizing lense and shine a light thru the lens and then the glass. Right? So do you put on the glasses, lay your glass on the glasses, where is the l...
