Dani, I don't see a reason you should have a problem. If your glass is annealed properly, this would be no more traumatic to the glass than normal sandblasting or carving. Are you going to gluechip in a bag? or in the oven? - Barbara

I wouldn't mind volunteering, but considering the heroic effort it takes to manage it, we would probably have too thin crew here in NC...even tho the shipping setup is good. HOWEVER...like I said it would probably be too thin a group. I do like your idea of the central US getting into the fray, tho....

It's probably "bloom". Bert Weiss can give you all sorts of advice on this. But I've never been able to remove bloom, once it's been fired. Did you check for tin side? Coat the glass with a devit solution?

I have made BE sinks with no problem. You didn't mention how thick or how large the vessel is, or why you think it might be a problem. And, no, you don't want to temper it.

Re: Gecko Glass?

there was a US stained glass company (yough?) that moved their production factories to china and is now imported only for the houston wholesaler. it's not meant to be a fusing glass. I believe Armstrong has moved its operations to China, but I don't think they sell exclusively to any distributor. t...

take it to a ceramics place and ask them to do a slip pour and make you 10 of them. ask them to let you drill the holes before they bisque them. In order to do the slip casting, you need a plaster master mold. The ceramics shop may be able to do that, but perhaps not. (Mine didn't.) Understand that...

Just to add a bit to the fray. I don't use silver--in any form. Yet, my fiber has a yellow cast on it from firings, and I have wiped yellow off my fired glass. I personally think a potential culprit is black glass, since I have had more evidence of it after firing black. The answer to this would be ...

Kaye, you seem to have a neat little kiln. Remember, the lower voltage will mean a little more electricity on your bill and a somewhat slower fire. Other than that, you should be good to go, with a pyrometer. Play with it. I started my whole deal with an old Paragon enameling kiln. It's still being ...

Right on, Paul. On a 4x4 tile, we apply no more than a dime-size dot in each corner, when using silicone. Silicone needs to *breathe* to cure properly and not destroy the mirror.

We use several things for the mirrors, but I'm not familiar with what might be available in your area. My suggestion is to call your local glass&mirror company and ask them what they use. Liquid Nails is "no longer" guaranteeing mirror, from what I understand. We don't use or recommend it. Palmer Pr...

I don't know how large an area you are trying to cover. Smaller the better. Both will work, but the UV will be a much better clean-up, and shorter set-up time. Depends on the color glass you are trying to adhere. If not red, yellow, green, orange or some ambers...the UV would probably be best. - Bar...

PS Marty....what are you using as a spray bottle? We find the regular drugstore ones will clog up quickly, especiallly if we don't clean it out well after using. - Barbara
