1. overlap the strips slightly

2. bevel the edges of the strips so they fit one under the other

3. add a bunch of clear frit over the seams

4. don't expect the sheet to come out of this operation scar-free!

good luck-
Jackie

I will spend my time in the studio today trying to enjoy seeing it come together instead of picking it apart.


This is a great rule for all of us to live by. Hey Phil Hoppes - are you listening out there?? Get this made into t-shirts that you wear to your studio every day. :)

Phil, I think you are (as many of us are) much tougher on your own work than you are on those of your peers. You come over here and rave about a new piece of mine, when in reality, every piece I've ever made has some flaw or another that I could find and point out to you. Granted, in my style of wor...

Just got my catalog today and it's a beauty..... tell Lani it's better than ever. And is it my imagination or are there all kinds of new toys this time around? I only wish there were as many glass videos as there are jewelry videos available in my other fave catolog from Rio Grande.... but, that's ...

Jackie, my mind just got boggled. Are you saying that your intricate color dances are fired upside down in the initial firing? (or just upside down when you frame them)? Barbara Color dances . . . gee, I like that. I've been trying to think of something to call my inserts - other than "inserts" Any...

Should I; a) go kick his arse in gear, b) look ahead and flip the piece so the bottom becomes the top, c) continue with the hand pads, or d) other? E - all of the above. All of my pieces are fired upsidedown, all are sandblasted, all have handpads involved, and most have some "other" thrown in too.

I use a tile saw for this and just keep making straight cuts on it until it's circle-ish then finish it up on the WBS. Bert would probably just use a regular hand cutter, but I know for sure I can't do it that way!

Maybe Jackie will post her painting she did with Paradise Paints. It was very painterly...and a good painting taboot. Well, this is my first and only attempt with the paints, but some day I intend to play around with them a little more. Maybe when I have loads of free time . . . !! (so, maybe . . ....

I've done lots of high-fires . . . no saucer. All the term means is the process temp for the particular procedure is higher than that of normal full-fuse temps. Usually a range between 1600 to 1700 and generally involving a soak at these high temps. Actually, I would think combing qualifies as a hig...

Re: Thanks & 1 more question

Thanks for the info, all! If the process was complete in 5.52 hours, then the rest of the time must have been annealing and cool down. Then the question is, once I see the CPL, can I unplug the kiln and go to bed? (I was up every half hour until 4AM and it still read 256 degrees - at which point I ...

CPL was probably "controler-speak" for complete. The 552 (was that it?) is the current temp reading in the kiln. Hit the stop button once and just the temp will flash.

Hey, you know what would be funny - you pick up that magazine tomorrow and start flipping through it and when you get to page 13 you can say, "Well, my goodness - look at this!
