Can't get past step #1. I'm too all over the map to be able to find an opposite in style or intent (screams "needs therapy" doesn't it) and the only tools I don't use, I don't own! I feel like I am always outside the box! I'm not sure that is a good thing... Anyway, looking forward to seeing what y...

I definitely would go for a silicon adhesive. My plastics guy has used silicone in the construction of signs. Somewhere in Maryland is a hospital sign outside, that he made 25 years ago, all glued up with GE brand clear silicone that has never needed any repair despite its exposure to sun, cold, win...

Does that mean that the borax prevents the steeling of the blue?

Sarah, you might want to look into one of the small tabletop kilns that run on houshold current as a solution. I used a paragon Quickfire for a year and a half before getting my bigger kiln up and running. It was a great way for me to begin to learn about how glass works. And it wasn't a huge invest...

[quote="Jackie Beckman"](I mostly use it on edge, or broken up chunks because I love the shading and variations in color.) IF I am going to use French Vanilla, I often cast up a slab of frit and then use that. I love love love the color breaks. It kind of reminds me of going to a local far...

Kelly you are too smart for words. I'm betting on ammonia. Try using dishsoap and after rinsing if it isn't squeaky enough for you, some rubbing alcohol. Ammonia no, alcohol yes. Also just FYI, I think it is the lead in the Spray A that causes that reaction. In general I find that the best solution ...

So here's a question for ya.... the correct pronunciation of Reusche should be Roy-shuh.... so, why do we all say Roo-SHAY? Eh? :?: :roll: Dani it never ever occurred to me to pronounce it as Roo-SHAY. And I have never heard it pronounced that way. I have always pronounced it as Roysh. Barbara

Hey there Kelly - Don't put Spray A on French Vanilla unless you want mustard yucky yellow. :shock: I learned that one the hard way. Its a reaction you want to avoid. Hmnnnn, to me its a luscious aged parchment look.... But yeah it won't be french vanilla anymore. Jackie, were you able to blast it ...

Jackie, my mind just got boggled. Are you saying that your intricate color dances are fired upside down in the initial firing? (or just upside down when you frame them)?

Amy you need to spend a little time with my family. I did the carpal tunnel thing five years ago. Truly a workplace injury caused by them being too slow to fix something broken.

Re: PMC for Glass Fusing Jewelry

Terry: I've heard two stories about using PMC in a kiln. One is true and the other is apparently a myth. It's true there can be some discoloration between PMC and certain colored glasses. That's a fact and should you decide to get into PMC -I'm sure there's plenty of information on which colored gl...

Or you could draw the design that you want to see in your stringers on the glass. Resist the design and sandblast the well where you would fill in the colors. Fill and fire away.

Someone I know recently bought a BE shelf and had it cut into an Octagon to fit a kiln with the same dimensions as yours. A round shelf is probably what you have. You can cut an octagon from the square shelves BE is selling and make it fit. Eventually they will (I hope) be selling round shelves as w...
