Janine (nice name - it's mine too!) it would help us to answer your questions if you told us the following: size and thickness of your glass, size of your mold, and firing schedules. My guess, without knowing any of the above is that you are ramping up too fast and slumping too high. all my best, Ba...

Deb I just fire the stringers on top of a piece, soot and all. The soot has never left a trace for me.

My guess, you had a lot more mass to heat and that last layer didn't get hot enough for the tack fuse.

Check out this site:

Connie Fox has generously shared her jewelry photography set-up. I think you will find it to be cheaper and just as effective as the cloud dome.

Re: Beginner needs help! Want distinct edges.

I've tried numerous experiments to achieve distinct edging. I'm trying, for instance, to create a picture of an iris. The points of the leaves "round" too much and narrow spaces between leaves where I want the background space to maintain a separation "squeeze" together. My best trys are with a tac...

However, my experience is that the time involved for a similar piece of pottery is waaaay greater than for glass. SO in the long run I think it averages out equally. I'm talking about "one off" pieces of glass and pottery, not production work. Janine I spend a lot more time on my functional and non...

Jerry: sounds like a browser hijacker rather than a virus to me. Try Spy Bot, which finds things that AdAware doesn't; if this doesn't work, download Hijack This! and run it. Hijack This! isn't particularly user friendly, but it will find things that other programs won't. Exactly. I had a similar s...

I frequently fire silver in the kiln in the form of uncapped leaf and foil. Not the same as PMC, I know. I can't report on residues on the elements but I can say with confidence that when silver stains (or not) my shelf, if I fire glass on that part of the shelf that usually reacts with silver, it r...

If you are referring to the teeny seed bubbles in a sheet of transparent glass, the squeeze soak won't eliminate those. The squeeze soak prevents the formation of bubbles between your two layers of glass.

Charlie, I have run a couple of tests with it. So far I am not jumping for joy. And I love chartreuse! Next I am going to try using it over spring green, see if it takes the green down a notch or two. will post test results after that.

Charlie, do you think that was thermal shock or annealing? Annealing breaks can happen long after a project comes out of the kiln.....

And have you done any more black and white projects?

I'm not quite sure what you are asking Judy. I agree with Cynthia that not having annealed was probably a big factor in your explosion. But the strong contrasts in your piece between black and white are an invitation to thermal shock even when it is annealed. What I found was that with pieces that h...

Another questions Judy. Was it close to the edge of your glass? If so, is your thicker copper usually close to the edge? When I look at glass sadwiched copper pieces, I have noticed that the edges of the glass are more likely to oxidize than the center which usually turns that gorgeous burgundy red ...
