Measuring accurately

Hi I am somewhat challenged by accurately measuring so my pieces of glass fit together better before fusing. I imagine there are some "tricks of the trade" that I have yet to learn. My tools include a morton board, rulers with cork on one side, and a L square. It seems I am often just a li...

Re: Glass mosaic bowl

I use bullseye glass. Not sure what color the lighter blue is because it was unlabeled scrap glass. The dark blue is deep royal blue, the green is adventurine green and the frit is fine marigold yellow. It was made with a base of two layers of 90 clear. Thanks for the comments. This was the first ti...

Re: My bowl didn't fully slump.

Re: kiln in unheated garage

Hi. Here's an update on my olympic champ XL kiln. Olympic was very helpful and suggested I make two simple projects to slump test for each program.

kiln in unheated garage

Hi I live in Woodstock, NY and moved to a new home. My kiln is in an unheated garage. The kiln was working well originally but now is intermittently not completing the firing schedule. Sometimes it fires properly. But sometimes it fires fine for most of the firing schedule but gets "stuck"...
