Re: Wave Mold Slump Breakage

Upon a second look - is that System 96 glass? If so, your anneal temp should be 950.

Re: Wave Mold Slump Breakage

There is no such thing as "too long of an anneal" and since the fiber paper will insulate the glass, you need to adjust your ramp up. I would try 100/hr. If you are holding three hours at 900 deg, the annealing should be sufficient.

Re: crisp lines with powders and frit

You could use Liquid Glassline and then fill in with frit. Google it - Richard La Londe. Basically CMC & glass powder, piped through a cake decorating bag. There's a free tutorial out on the internet somewhere.

Re: Concerning firing enamels

Hello Ms. Havi, I know with the Colorline enamels, the reds will burn out unless they are fired on their own. They are affected by a reduced oxygen environment so any organics in the kiln that are burning off will affect the color (including the binder in other enamels in the same firing) So, paint ...

Re: 2020 Ornament Exchange

As a seasoned procrastinator I am proud to say mine are bagged and ready to box/ship -- EARLY! Of course, I submitted my entries tonight for a statewide competition 2.5 hours before the deadline (submissions have been open for a month).

Looking forward to seeing all the ornaments soon!

Re: painting crisp, even thickness lines

You've probably already figured this out, but I find that Color Line self-levels and flows fairly significantly.

I've been having fun with it, but I'm also planning on some experiments on how not to have it flow.

Re: zyp coating

Zyp still has to be removed. It can be brushed away with a paintbrush and then resprayed. However, it's nasty stuff to breathe and so I would not want to spray or brush in an enclosed area. I always work outside, and often even put on my respirator (or hold my breath - ha ha ;)). From the SDS: HAZAR...

Re: metal panels

They are very smooth (no burrs), but not rounded. I sand down the edges with a little sand paper, just like you would to take the edge off sharp glass.

Re: metal panels

I purchased a large sheet of aluminum (4'x8', i think) from a local metal company, and they cut it up for me in various sizes. I have enough to last me for quite some time, but those 30-some odd sheets I got were significantly less expensive (as in 10x) than buying what is being sold retail.
