Blanket

Recovered from the last piece; New piece going in for firing...

UPDATE: Final fuse done which left some texture on the edges, then slumped into the final blanket form. Note how the Steel Blue went back to the steel color at the lower slumping temp.

Re: Cerium Oxide.. Alternative anyone?

You could use pumice prior to your cerium and you will find that you need to use much less cerium. Must have a dedicated pumice pad though; cannot use the same one for the cerium.

Indecision

Ever get a great idea in your head that doesn't quite work out when you go to put it together.....and of course you don't want to waste all the glass.

Re: mold size?

You also need to keep in mind the expansion that takes place in both the kiln bricks and the mold itself when it heats to top temp. An 11 inch mold that fits in an 11 inch kiln when cold will likely end up in several pieces after firing.

Re: Opal Art & Devit?

Curious what you are fusing the Inferno with. I don't believe that it is a glass made for fusing which makes it prone to devit.

Re: Thermal shock or careless handling?

Many of my strip bowls are about 9mm thick. I often make them from multiple blanks that are cut up and rearranged. In making the initial blanks I ramp down from the first hold sometimes as fast as 100 dpi, but slow down substantially on subsequent firings. I use a glass cutter rather than a tile saw...

Re: Thermal shock or careless handling?

Photos would be a great help but I think that you will find that this is an annealing issue. Your hold temp is appropriate for System 96, however IMO the hold is not near long enough. I work with strips in both System 96 and GNA and use an initial hold of 180 minutes, and a secondary hold of 60 minu...

Re: Glastar grinding heads--are they worth the extra $?

I have used both the gelbits and the twofers. The gelbits did not seem to last as long, but the twofers are great and that is all that I buy now. I get just as much wear out of them as I did the expensive ones. Tim

Nope, unless you are using some sort of glue or other material containing moisture.
