Re: Clearance between mold and kiln wall

I chickened out and am using the big kiln. Rosanna, your warning about the temp was right on. The piece has 2 layers of small squares mixed between larger solid pieces and that has a tendency to crack on the slump. Plus it is a brand new mold and I'd hate to lose it on the first firing. Thanks for t...

Clearance between mold and kiln wall

I want to do a slump into a ceramic mold. There is only 1/8" clearance between the corners of the mold and the walls of the kiln. The elements are only on the top, not the sides. Am I asking for trouble if I try this?

Re: kilns and storms--power surges?

After a power surge turned on my Evenheat kiln when I was gone, I've stopped leaving it plugged in. Another time, a surge caused it to lose the Seg 0 info which stops it. It ran away to about 1700 degrees before I unplugged it. It has an old Rampmaster controller. Newer kiln from Skutt is supposed t...

Re: how to remove silicone glue?

Paint thinner works on E6000. Might try it on silicone.

Re: Uneven bowl slumping

You said you checked the mold and the shelf and found them to be level. Did you use a level on top of the glass after you put it in the mold?

Re: Dichro Slide

Most of the manufacturers have very helpful tech support people. If you don't know the manufacturer, call your supplier and find out.

Re: a table

Both pieces are stunning, Nina. I love the combination of wood and glass because of the contrast. I love, love, love the sculpture Life of Trees. Hope it sells for you. I'd love to see it in a public setting where many people can enjoy it.

Re: Donut Bails

The only ones that are $10 are the small geometric pendants that I sell to girls under the age of 14. It often leads to other sales from the Mom. I am getting most this size done in 1 firing. I use a 1/2 inch wide painter's brush to flatten the top. Then I use a very small, angled painter's brush an...

Re: Go and stop and go? Or just go?

More holds====more wear on the controller and relays===more replacement, maintenance? Just a suspicious person.

Donut Bails

I'm selling lots of the pendants made with Colour de Verre molds--easy to make, fun to experiment with color combos, priced from $10 to $20 with satin cord. I want to attach some of the pillow pendant pieces to beaded necklaces. I hate wire wrapping. So I wanted to use a donut bail to attach them. I...

I tried them all. Now I use a brush and a 1875 watt hairdryer. Worked better than my husband's heat gun even.
