Well, I won´t really fuse it, but I want to texturize it with some forms done from fiber paper, and I´ve done lots of tests and I found that it has to stay 10 min soak at 1470 F, to be perfect.
Thanks

glass shrinkage

Hi
I have to fuse one layer of glass - 3mm. I know that there will be some shrinkage. I want that the final piece to be 8.3X7.5 in. Is there any formula that I can use to calculate the size of the original glass? Is it linear, or the shrinkade depends upon the area?
Thanks

Re: Logo or Signature with Oven Cured Glass Paints?

Thanks to all that respond. :D I use this kind of paints for my jewelry pieces. You can´t use them if they will be used with something hot, like asht...

Re: Fusing 3/8 float glass

Luiza I fuse 2 layers of 10mm all the time. Only once did I try a dam and it killed me. The glass hit the dam and curled up then shrunk back and became too small. I often make the top piece larger than the bottom by it's thickness which makes a rolled edge. The edge is especially good on the circle...

Fusing 3/8 float glass

Hi
I´m having problems to full fuse two layers of 3/8 in float glass. I know I have to do some kind of dam, but I can´t figure how.
I need to fuse two square layers 18x18 in, and two circular ones, 16 in diameter .
Thanks for any advice

Re: More Rocks

I read all I could find about casting/draping/encasing rocks and wasn't happy with any of it. So I've put together a process that works well and answered the question; YES, you can cast/drape/encase rocks. Pictures available via email; I haven't figured out how to post one on this board yet.

Luiza, I'm sure that in Brazil there are many tile shoppes and tile installers. Go visit one of them and ask about their saws. I'm sure you will find that they have a saw similar to what I posted earlier. Take a look at http://www.felkersaws.com/new_TM75.shtml Felker is a manufacturer of tile saws ...

Do you mean Zircon instead of Kaolin ? Just Zircon and water?
Are the results smooth?

Hi Tony
The site I could find that shows a similar one is
http://www.dewalt.com.br/products/Cata/ ... dID=DW861B
The saws I found here are for granite and other stones cut. It´s not ok?
Thanks a lot for your patience.
