So far, so good – and the experiment continues …

I’m waiting for my kiln to finish (6+ hours to go), but so far, my ‘speriment’ is working.  I doubt she’ll fuse all the way to what I’ve envisionded, but … maybe – because she’s fired face-down with Wissmach Luminescent … We’ll see.  It’s no replacement for No Days Wafer Sheet … but, it does keep me occupied while I can’t be in Vegas (at the glass expo).

My plotter failed miserably on the film I used.  So, I cut this design by hand (HUGE drawback # 1!) …  I doubt the powder layer is deep enough – but, thus far the experiment  has worked.

And, yesterday’s experiment DID burn clean … (Building Blocks!)

So, I keep plugging away in my studio!  T-5 Days … No pressure!!!Meanwhile … DH (umm, Nunke) says he heard ‘gurgling’ in the pipes.  I still have no running water in the studio, but SOMEONE says “it’s CLOSE!”

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
