I am so jealous. I want a kiln really bad, but don't think I can afford one anytime in the near future!  Cry

for jewelry the babysit time isn't really that bad. I do it while I surf Craftster! Smiley

I also use a small kitchen timer when I want to watch TV or a movie while I fire.. It's really not as complex as you'd think.

Love it! It's always so inspirational to look at other people's glass pieces. Did you use stringers to make the decorations (paper clip, heart et.c.) and if you did, isn't it difficult to bend? Are there pens/paint one can use to draw decorations? Also, do you have any tips on glue and how to dilute it? I am also new to this glass business and have sooo many questions.  Smiley

Still wishing for a Tunisian crochet kit. Would be happy to personal swap for one. I have fabrics and all sorts of stuff to swap for.

I missed a whole bunch of comments, they were stringer, the first thing I did was play with stringer, because I had glass before I had the kiln, so I played with the stringer for a few days while waiting for my 1st kiln to arrive. They're very easy to bend, it's just a matter of figuring out how to control HOW they bend, so they stay fairly flat, or at least that's what gives me the most trouble! I used Elmer's and watered it down a little more than half water and the rest glue, not too scientific, I barely ever use glue anymore though.
 There are pens and paints, Glassline pens/paint, and enamel paints, but I haven't ever bought any, or used any, yet!
