Making an out line and need the line thin have Josephine glass black and Josehine outline black.
Will tack fuse and then cap and fire to full 1475 or around there do you think the Josephine will hold up or burn out?
I also have Paradise.
What will work best??
As aways thanks for the help dont know what I would do with out you guys :-)

The Josephine glass black has a low melting frit in it. It would dissipate the most of the three. I guess that either of the other two will do as well as anything else available. Rather than putting stock in my guess you could of course test them.

I love the new .5 mm stringers from Bullseye for thin lines.

I also use Reusche enamels with clove oil, and have fired the high-fire formulas to 1500°. My tests with Paradise Paints (I have several jars of the mixed paint) show they hold up to at least 1440°.

I agree the BE thin stringers are great but I need enamel I also use clove oil I love the smell the houes has for days:) Just me.
I did a test and capped it was fine up to a full fuse so testing testing always pays!!
