Hi, I know this is a few months old, but was wondering, is this pretty easy to use, for a newbie? I've been wanting a kiln, small ,but big enough to do bottles and still run on household current. I see you have it on a table, in the house ,right? Can I ask how long these bottles take to slump? I've been wanting to buy a kiln so long, but am too chicken. Not sure I can figure it out once I got one. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.Thanks, Jenifer.
thank you so much for replying.i have figured out that i'm going to need at least a 15" kiln, which is going to cost a little more than i was wanting to spend. also i'm not so sure about the electrical part of it. i live in a old house that has been totally remodeled,but the wiring is screwy.i did not understand the amp thing. so i think i'm going to hold off for a while on buying one. even tho i am itching to get started. alot of decisions,huh? thanks,jenifer
i would like to buy my first kiln, but i'm so confused. i need a small one , one that runs on 110, and big enough to slump bottles. i've looked all over the net ,but am kinda overwhelmed now. any advice would be greatly appreciated. thanks,jenifer.
hello, i seen this guy on you tube do this in a toaster oven, so i tried it, twice, and it didn't work either time. i did exactly what he did, but i don't think it gets hot enough, i don't know he got it to work, unless he is leaving out important info. i want to make these reaaaaally bad too, i'm seriously think about buying a kiln. like a small tabletop one.i just don't know which one to buy.i've looked all over the net, and i am way overwhelmed and confused, any recommendations,anybody? thanks,jenifer
well I made mine, but ended up using 4x6 prints off my computer. Copies at wal-mart were too expensive ,(4.94 for 8x10) It came out pretty good, the glue seems to be holding up ,of course I haven't cracked the spine too hard. It's really cute, I put raggedy ann on the front and back. I would say this was pretty easy and i'll probably make a bigger one.Maybe use something else instead of a picture. Maybe an old folder torn in two. (a paper one )jenifer
thanks for this link ,my 15 ds and i are going to make these today but with pictures that are 8x10. what about decoupage glue? or does the elmers stand up pretty good? she wants a twilight or orlando one. i haven't decided on mine yet. anybody else made these yet? i'm hoping the glue stands up. jenifer
