I think I ‘misthunk’ …Doh!

And it’s slowing me down.  But – better safe than sorry.  I was just about ready to run my ‘mosaic’ and frit coffin load when it occurred to me that I might want to full-fuse the bases to the tops (of about 1/2 of them) BEFORE I ‘tack fuse’ (a little hotter than that, but same difference in this instance) …

almost-run

testSo, now I’m running a test in the production kiln.  One ‘grouted’ piece – that can withstand close to full fusing temps, and one that I probably don’t want to take that high … If I’m right, it means I’ve got some re-working to do, as I’ve already glued the designs in place.  Aaarrggh!  I guess   we’ll see …

Tomorrow is Day One of my glass class – sure hope I wake up on time …

About claytonhill

Artisan of beautiful and functional art, handmade in our glass studio. All items one of a kind due to the nature of our medium. A little about me: As the mother of four children, multiple four-legged 'children', wife and an ER nurse ... I've always found pleasure in pursuing creative outlets. My current 'hobby' is kiln-formed glass. As I never do anything 'half-way' ... my husband and I are really enjoying this medium. Other hobbies have included/include stained glass, quilting, knitting, wine making, candles - oh, and a brief trial of the ancient Ukranian art of etching designs on blown eggs ... don't ask. :) You can view my on-line glass store at www.chneos.etsy.com
