Re: Repairing seam lines? Advice?

I agree, the seam lines really don't seem to be much of an issue with your interesting piece of art. if they really bother you I would add something subtle to the entire background, like others have said chunks of clear or coordinating blue/green.

Re: Oval dish suggestions

you cut the glass pre-fuse to fit the top of the mold. so you would cut out an oval to begin with.

Re: Fusing schedule question

I would say you should also ramp up slower than normal because all those layers will heat up at different rates. I am a newbie but I had a piece which was all 2 layers but I had 3 circles stacked on top. I got a crack right by the circles and my teacher told me it's because the circles were so thick...

Re: How to make sharp lines

what if you put a clear layer on the bottom (in order to get the two required layers) and then use thinner glass for the black? then it would not spread out as much.

Re: Mica Powders

Haley, I didn't test any TKB whites, only Pearlex. see my photo, 2nd row, last 3. Macro Pearl came out a medium sparkly silver, Micro Pearl came out white, and Pearl White came out a light silver.
