I do think that one of my "sucesses" is that I carry a very broad range of items. I'm almost retail only so carrying many different items is feasable. I think if you are mostly wholesale you need to concentrate on fewer items with good quality at quantity numbers. My range goes from tiny 12.00 earri...

pacific art glass does have them - maybe you have to call them. They are very slow at getting their web up and running.

What ever you have the most of does not sell - what ever you have the least of sells!....Last weekend I sold high end items - surprised me, just this past week I sold my middle range - running out of stuff. During the past June till October I thought I was going to die with down sales - now I'm up. ...

From my experience it is great work at a bargain price. Mostly I do small donations - so that the bite wont be hard - or pieces that I no longer sell. Even watching the big art auction of a local public TV station the prices are minimal at best and I end up feeling depressed for the artist that made...

Re: Glass Curtain

Is each tile made separately or do you make one row of tiles with the fiber inserts and cut them apart after firing and then refire? How do you keep the fiber paper absolutly straight so that the grooves will line up in the finish piece. Thanks - Terry Ow-Wing " The channels are made by placing fibe...

.....Terry Ow-Wing has posted about it for removing posts, ... it's me. I usually use something like a baking pan /turkey plan , use laquer thinner, close the top and leave in the garage for a day or so. For small jewelry finings I just use a glass jar and leave the findings in there. I may give it ...

Normally I offer to hold the piece untill the person is done with the show so that they will not have to carry it around. One this gives me more time to wrap securely and two it gets them to come back a second time. I bring a lot of bubble wrap.

Put it this way Corian can be just as expensive as granite or marble which usually means quality in countertops - guess you can chalk it up to an innocent ignorant compliment..... :shock:

if chipping is a problem many times I just take the edge to the grinder and grind the entire edge - that way it is uniform and the chips do not show as an obvious glitch. Even on certain designs putting a ground edge exposing the black unlaying glass is a design aspect.

one thing that I learned as time went by - is needed space for storing finished items, storage space of component of glass pieces and space for shipping materials.

whenever I had a crack like that I usually make it even wider (artistically) :wink: and fill in with "design" elements....I just go with it and avoid fighting it - it may lead you down some design ideas you would have never thought of in the first place.

maybe the depth of the powder is too uneven?? :? This may produced cooked edges and uncooked centers?? if so try to really apply the powders evenly - of course I've only done this technique 3 times.

if you go the backer board route - do put in the spacer either with steel studs or metal clips. 1" should be fine. I learned the hard way that the airspace is critical! :cry: Install a fan that will exhaust to the outside.

Better safe than sorry... :oops:

Make sure that all the undercuts of the broken bubble are taken away - so thath they do not trap air again. I fill with frit and sometimes I add a tiny piece of dichro (part of the design)to deflect the light so that the uneveness wont be so apparent.

best of luck.
