1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Bronze PMC. I have questions. on: November 12, 2012 10:25:11 AM
Any guidance is welcome.

I have a Kiln.  I'm not awesome with it but I muddle through (Delphi EZ-Pro).  I ordered a kit from Cool Tools to do the bronze firing.  I've done fine silver PMC before.
I am wanting to make christmas ornaments that have thumbprints and some stamped letters.  I stamp on metal discs all the time but haven't stamped on PMC before.
How many firings can you use the carbon for?
Stamp when clay is malleable or after firing?
Any special tips on bronze?
2  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Guidance on: April 10, 2012 07:21:11 AM
I generally work with metal...
A friend gifted me with a kiln (Delphi EZ-PRO) which I've used for PMC stuff.
She also gave me a bunch of molds for glass slumping...some smaller ones for jewelry pieces and larger ones for plates and bowls and stuff.
I have no idea at all what to do or where to go look for stuff....the tag on some of the molds indicated purchase from Slumpys so I have gone to that site a little but I'm overwhelmed with not knowing.
Glass isn't the medium I work in but I think it would be a waste not to dabble a little bit with so much stuff already invested in for it....
Any guidance on an idiot's guide to this realm?
What would I absolutely have to purchase? 
Where can I find affordable stuff?
Any advice is appreciated Smiley
3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Kiln Help on: December 23, 2011 06:04:31 PM
I have inherited a Delphi EZ PRO Kiln (Also says Jen Ken Kiln).  I have no instruction manual.  I have made and want to fire (for Xmas gifts) my first pieces of PMC stuff.
I have no idea what to do.  It is not the 15-6 model...the last owner thinks it had the number 11 in the title...
I have googled and I just have no idea what to really do...

I think I need an Idiot's Guide to firing PMC in a kiln with no instruction manual Smiley
Any help is appreciated!

I am new to the boards and have searched but didn't see a topic on this (but I'm not savvy so I may have searched incorrectly).
I am not new to jewelry making but want to start making some handstamped jewlery.
