Double Your Dichro!!

Posted on

Just like so many times in my glassy life, I discovered this by making a clumsy mistake. I reached too high to get a project from a shelf. I should have gotten a step stool, but que sera! The project fell out of my hand and crashed to the floor. It broke in pieces. 🥺 This piece was Reed Glass tack fused onto 4x4” pieces of dichro.

Tracking Mold Slumping Schedules

Posted on

I just saw a post on Facebook asking how to keep track of firing information on molds, so I thought I’d share this simple tip. After you’ve figured out the perfect schedule for a slumping mold, turn it over, and in silver sharpie write the thickness of the piece and the process slumping temperature. In other words, if the firing schedule looks something like this for a 9mm project: 300-1100-.15 600-1160-.20 9999-900-1.30 100-700-0 Use your silver sharpie to write 9mm-1160-.20 If you are firing a 6mm piece next time, the info will change: 350-1100-.10 600-1160-.30 9999-900-1.00 100-700-0 So write 6mm-1160-.30 over the 9mm entry If you are using...
