We Did It!!!
We still have a lot of fine tuning to do – but – I’m happy! Definitely having issue with temperature control and flow from the pot (- according to the readings on the manual pyrometer, we were dancing between 1550-1725 degrees) … Our cane never did ‘pull’ as easy as the Bullseye video demo. I’m thinking our crucible needs to have a larger opening … We’ll see.
And, while I had my stack all nice, layered and round within the pot – we didn’t have much luck with simple concentric cane. But – I LOVE these colors!!! And – DH can’t complain, cuz I didn’t spend any (additional) money for this experiment (… YET)! HAHA!
