Re: Spring panel

Not sure why the embedded photo is 90 degrees rotated. When I click the image it rights itself.

Spring panel

Fused BE colors on Tekta, silver stain and enamels. Panels for the other seasons are planned. Hence the odd hanging alignment to the left of the picture window.

Re: Smooshing Weights

HI Jen. Thank you for checking in. We could talk about AU women's swimming or something. They did well in Tokyo and in a time zone where their fans could actually watch it.

Smooshing Weights

Are flat iron griddles or 1/4 stainless steel plate suitable for using to press down glass in the kiln? Or will they spall and warp or something? The high end of the process is >1500F with a 30 minute hold. I don't want to ruin the metal just to find out its a bad idea. I can source some refractory ...

Frit size choices

When I layer glass for stained glass pieces, I fill in the gaps with powder. I buy the powder rather than try to make it, usually. It works. But I wonder if there would be any advantage to using a higher size frit. Would fine or larger work better? Some criteria I would consider are: Can a greater v...

Re: gasket material

The counterweight, if a coffee can, should have some vintage cachet. You can build one with a Costco or Kroger generic can that you have around, but best results are achieved if you eventually score an old Maxwell House or Hills Bros, Chock Full of Nuts.....you know what I mean.

Lady's Slipper

This is a new piece. Bullseye, Lambert's, Blenko glass. Lady's Slippers petals are fused and sandcarved Bullseye. The border has ramps (wild leeks from our region) made from flattened softdrink bottles that had lettering on their shoulders. http://burtglass.com/images/McLandrich_Ladys_Slipper_Web.jpg

Re: plaster silica

I just used silica that's at least five years old with some new #1 pottery plaster, 50x50 and it set and dried nicely. The silica was stored in pretty stable conditions in a plastic bag.

Re: painting crisp, even thickness lines

Terry, I airbrush transparent enamels, even for lines through a resist. Yes, it requires commitment to say the least. For black lines, drawing, I almost always freehand trace with a rigger. I trace with paint prepared with D1368 water friendly medium. I go slow. If I were to try to do straight lines...

Re: painting crisp, even thickness lines

I second what Brad suggested. It is relatively easy to use two blades taped together to cut through vinyl paint mask resist. It would be unrealistic to attempt it on a three dimensional surface but on flat glass without too much texture it works. I like Oracal 813 resist because I can see my cuts, s...
