Always the clear Uro with BE, no problems. Sometimes the other colors. Only problem I ever experienced was with one of the Uroboros reds. Not surprising since reds can be difficult to make.

Re: Schedule for kiln pressed glass - for Uroboros

I never fired Uro 90 that much (if any) different than Bullseye. The same schedule ought to work.

Re: Graham Stone

I would imagine Richard Whiteley knows him. I know that Brock once told me he had slept on Graham's couch, so he must have known him as well. As for me, I have spoken to Graham several times on the telephone, back in the early 1990's, trying to get permission to print his book in the US. They were b...

Re: Heat resistant Tape

That makes sense, just not sure why it would be better than fiber paper.

Most high temperature tape that I'm aware of is only rated to 500F, but might hold up longer insulated by glass. Google high temperature tape.

I'm no good to you, last time I tried to use one of those "Plug & Play" controllers I never could get it to work. If Tony Smith comes by the board he might be able to help, or you could try Brad Shute at handmade-glass.com

Re: gasket material

You could patch that with kiln cement/brick mortar.

Alternatively, you could replace the entire brick, but the mortar would be easier.

Add a layer of fiber paper on top would probably not help that much anyway.

Re: gasket material

Why are you dropping the lid when you close it? You shouldn't really need any kind of cushioning if you're just closing the lid gently. Is there a reason why you need to drop it?

Re: glasses for kiln work

You need glasses that block infrared radiation. That's welder's glass, shade 2 to 3, you're probably wearing something much darker than that. Medical supply houses also sell glasses that block infrared, as well as most fused glass suppliers and distributors. You don't know didymium glasses (lampwork...

Re: Multiple high temperature firings

It does.

I'd be leery of firing more than once (and twice at the most) at temperatures above 1600F/870C. Incompatibility can result. It's especially likely with whites, with glasses containing aventurine, with glasses containing gold, and with pieces you absolutely don't want it to happen.

Re: why very few listings here?

You aren't missing anything. What's listed is what people have submitted for listing. Sometimes we have a lot of them, sometimes we only have a few. Nothing mysterious, just how many get submitted for listing. The do get deleted after a month or two, but other than that, what you see is what there is.

Re: Sunshine mixing flux

MIxing flux is clear, not white. It has two main purposes. You can add it to any color to get that color to shine up at a lower temperature. For example, the greens often are a little dull at 1350F, but adding a little mixing flux will get them to shine up at that lower temperature. Secondarily, the...

Re: What can I do to save this piece?

I guess it depends on what you'd like to accomplish with the piece. Generally, flipping and re-firing helps the most when you have divots or other areas that are irregular. You can make that work either smooshing again or just by flipping and then fusing to around 1400 to 1450F / 760 to 790 C. If yo...

Re: What can I do to save this piece?

I have had some luck flipping a piece over and refiring. It's worth a try.
