And we’re back with more questions from readers for Q & A Monday. Today’s questions are all about working with crushed recycled glass, or frit. I’ve left out the personal details for privacy, so if one of these questions is yours and you’d like attribution and a back link, please let me know. If you have a burning (melting?) glass question, send it on over. I may even have an answer for you.
The great thing about Q & A Monday is I have to do it on MONDAY. If it were just called Q & A then I would put it off and we would never get to the questions and answers! These questions are from readers and the answers that I sent back to them. They are offered here as an informational resource, and maybe, if you have a question of your own, you’ll be inspired to ask (don’t be shy). I’ve removed personal details for privacy, if you asked a question and want attribution and a back link, let me know.
Here we are at another Question and Answer Monday. These are reader questions, which I thought may also be useful for everyone. If you have a question, send it over. (I’ve removed personal details for privacy reasons, if you submitted a question and would like attribution and a back link, let me know!)
Wow! Last week’s Tech Tip was extremely popular, the number one question last week was:
Sometimes a girl just has to melt a whole bunch of glass. I’m working on samples for a possible project, so thought I’d give a quick run through of setting up and firing a bunch of pot melts. The end goal is 4 large pieces and 2 color samples. I’ll be casting 4 solid colors and 2 mixed colors.
This is the saucer for the bottom layer. I need to use this for two different colors, and keep them separate, so I’ll put in a kilnwashed divider made from a strip of old kiln shelf. (more…)
These adorable boxes combine cold working and fusing techniques and are incredibly versatile.
Each box uses 2 empty bottles of the same size. You can use two of the same color or contrasting colors. Bottles with flat or nearly flat bottoms work the best.
Select one bottle for the box and one for the lid. (more…)
