Inducing devit along glass scores

Postby Alexis Dinno » Mon May 07, 2018 5:57 pm

I am interested in drawing patterns on SLS glass using a cutter, and then inducing devit along the scores themselves. I have worked with intentional devit using laminate technique following much of the late Brian Blanthorn's ideas, but haven't been able to figure this one yet. I have tried a soak at 750ºC, but (surprisingly) the scores were melted and nearly reincorporated into the glass.

Ideas?

SLS glass?
I took notes on Brian Blanthorn's techniques that were on this bulletin board back in 2011.
Don't know if I should repost as other people also posted at that time on the same topic and Brian's are interlaced in the other commentary at that time.
I might also have errors in the saving process due to any editing that I may have done.
I love Brian's work so much I have PSK63

You can learn by studying actual glass he made.

A lot will depend on your kiln design.
