Clear coat overglaze "stain'

Postby Isabell » Tue Oct 28, 2003 7:46 pm

Hi everyone
I have just done a slump on a glass that I had sprayed Clear Coat Overglaze from Fuse Master. I used a spray gun . Now that the glass is slumped I see there is some ugly stains where the clear coat was sprayed I think this happened because the slumping took place at a 1250 F. and Clear Coat needs to go up to 1350 F. Does anyone have a suggestion on how to get rid of the stains? Should I fire the glass again at a 1350 without spraying it again or should I first spray it again and the re- fire the glass.
Thank you in advance.

Hi
I have the answer to my question. I want to post it so if someone has a similar experience you can try to do this: Re-fire the glass at 1350 F.without spraying any thing else on it and the stains from the "Clear Coat Overglaze will go away.
I just got my glass out of the kiln and it looks great by just re-firing it.
I hope this will help someone sometime.
Thanks
Isabella
