I thought that might be the problem. I can't believe I didn't get any texture either. In my big boys, I can do it at such lower temps. Also, can't I just turn it on 'high' to do this or do I need to worry about thermal shock on something this thin? I don't like having to baby sit it. It is SO differ...

Small Evenheat/temp for texture

I need answer fairly quickly....I have no experience in using such a small thing. (my ovens are 5' x 10') All I am trying to do is pick up a slight texture on a 4"x4" x 1/8" tile without disturbing the surface decoration (pearlx design, I think). I have it sitting on the rough side of fiberpaper. La...

Int'l orders

For what it's worth,

all international orders are handled via wire transfer, ship only after receiveing confirmation from YOUR bank.

(If they don't have a bank account, don't sell to them)

No worries.

Speaking of putting in applications, are your chances better if you say, complete 5 different applications and send in $$ for each one? In other words, If you applied and listed 3 choices, then applied again listing some of the same choices (additional $$) then applied again listing different choice...

lens cutter

Welcome!

There was a discussion on this exact subject just a week or two ago. Do a 'search' in the archives or scroll down a few pages until you see it. I didn't pay a lot of attention to the thread but it seems they discussed a lot of different brands, uses, etc.

Good luck!

Thanks Catharine. That sounds just like what I am looking for. I remember reading about it in the classifieds section and wondering how I could justify the airfare and hotel for a one day course. I might have to wait until I find something similar on the West Coast. I check the 'courses' section oft...

" Gale, I still believe that even if an artist hasn't "found" their voice, it's only because they don't recognize it - not because it isn't there.

There should be as much attention paid to this area of artistic development/achievement as one would give to the understanding of physical technique". Hi all, How would one go...

Pat, Of course the women are responding. What woman could resist the thought of all those cocks jumping into the canyon.

drop ship

Patricia, Depending on the type of items you make (one-of-a-kind vs. 'production' pieces) it can sometimes be a problem to drop ship. Things to consider: 1) If your items are one-of-kind and the 'end user' has only seen a similar item and not the actual piece you are sending, you might end up with a...

Paul, I think I would slump the two pieces of glass (one stacked on top of another with a seperator between them) at the same time, thus insuring they are an exact fit. I think one piece would have to be slightly larger than the other so that the edges matched up when slumped (if that was important ...
