Re: Spray A + Tack Fusing ?

I have 3 separate background pieces that have been fully fused. I'm planning on adding elements on top that will be taken to just tack/fire polish (in my larger 24" sq. shelf kiln, that's about 1450; 1525 is almost full fuse but with a slight contour and 1600 is fully fused). I know these temps see...

Re: Sandblasting in the house? or below freezing?

The house: The workshop leader advised never to blast in the house as it will be impossible to fully contain the dust and it will recirculate through the furnace forever. I could plastic-off the space under the stairs to contain me and the cabinet. This space could be connected to my 300 cfm welder...

Phil I feel your pain. I think there are two issues here. One is what to do with the flawed piece, and two, whether you should or can prevent it from happening in the future. One of the first pieces I made had huge bubbles that I hadn't planned on. I was deeply disturbed by this, and almost had to g...

Thanks Charlie. I didn't dig deep enough into the web site to find the photos. They are much better looking than the photos demonstrate.

If this works I'm going to see if we can't work with a somewhat smaller group next year and do real tiles for a mural to be put on a wall in the school. I think that would be really cool.

I was wondering where you found the nice, long arbor and lathe pictured in the calendar Nikki Hi Nikki, Dan at Covington Engineering made it for me. Steve Klein told me about this machine. If you call Dan he'll make you one, it's not in the catalogue. Costs about $1000. Just ask for the lathe he ma...

I gave my twin nieces small plates with their names on them 2 or 3 years ago. Last year, one twin put the other twin's plate in the microwave with some pancakes on it - and it exploded. I assumed it was thermal shock from uneven heating. Needless to say there was much finger pointing and recriminati...

So can you just tell me about the sides of your "Rainforest" piece??? The pale green in the middle - is that just thin pattern bars that you made??? How did you get such a thin sliver of pale green in between the dark green??? The border is made of about 500 pieces of glass. Each section of the bor...

I agree with Ron and Brock. Scrape the kiln wash off with a single edged razor in one of those little holders. Brush off any remaining dust. Recoat (I use 4 layers) and let air dry. If I'm in a hurry I put it in the kiln to 500 degrees and let it cool off quickly in the kiln. I always recoat if I'm ...
