Re: Spectrum 96 nuggets/ bubbles

The nuggets are typically furnace glass for blowing (and obviously some furnace castings.) The suggested temps are (right off of Spectrum's website): Studio Nuggets: Melting Guidelines Melt at 2200ºF (1204ºC) in 25 pound charges. Wait until surface has leveled off, then charge again. Soak at 2100º t...

Re: Skutt Clamshell element management

Don-

If you don't mind me asking, what did the elements cost? Did you do it yourself?

If you come up with a solution, I would love to know what you come up with...

Thanks,

Re: Wine Bottle -Frank Family Vineyards

If you can, scratch it in a discreet place (such as the back), with the edge of a key. If it comes off, it is enamel and will burn off without question. If the color is below the surface, it was etched first, and then color filled. Again, most likely with enamels... The only 2 cents I can add. - At ...

Re: Tile saws for cutting glass

Why don't you do a simple search of the board?

I would bet there are more threads on this topic than on if you should you a lubricant when cutting glass.

Or for that matter on the question of the ages "should I use Bullseye or System 96?"

C'mon be adventurous, live a little.

Re: Using strofoam as a mold

You may have seen someone making models to make molds.

You can sculpt foam, and then seal it. You would then use that to make casting or slumping molds.

You can go to http://www.sculpt.com/ and look at stryofoam, and foam sealers to see what I am talking about.

Donating your work to auctions

Somebody posted a link to this article about donating your work on the Craftweb board.

While I don't want to seem uncharitable, I totally agree with the article...

Re: Undo UV connection

The adhesive we use breaks down at about 350.

I put it in a convection over, bring it up at about 100 degrees per hour, grab it with oven mitts and it usually comes apart pretty easily.

Then I clean it up with razor blade and rubbing alcohol.
