11  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: postage stamp necklaces... (tutorial added.) on: September 17, 2012 08:33:46 PM
I just saw this post from SuzannaLeslie...a year later.  I sandwich my glass between two small pieces of balsa wood or use rubber-tipped clamps while I solder so that the metal is not in contact with the glass.  Hope that helps!

You are so right!  I can't wait until the morning after a fuse.  Haha!

Hi!  The reactive glass is Bullseye French Vanilla and then I used Aquamarine Blue frit/  .  The rest of the reaction is done with silver leaf.  The Aquamarine reacts with the French Vanilla and the silver foil reacted with French Vanilla.  Aquamarine does not react with silver foil, though.  It was an interesting experiment!!

16  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / First Two Firings in Kiln on: September 14, 2012 12:44:52 PM
So my friend gave me a kiln for my birthday (crazy, huh?) and it took me FOREVER to get up the nerve to use it for anything but PMC.  I love doing PMC, but it is so expensive and cost-prohibitive these days with the price of silver!!

These are the results of my first two firings.  Not perfect, but I liked how most of them turned out.  If you look in one of them, you can see where I accidentally positioned them too close together and I got a Siamese pendant!  Fun stuff, this glass fusing is!!!

Took three tries, but I finally got this little plate to have a flat bottom so that it didn't wobble.  Took some changing in the slumping time and also how I set up the mold--(needed to be only on a post, not on a shelf).  It's hard to see, but there is an indentation in the middle of the plate.

On to the next project!
