11  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Using the texture of food/leaves/natural objects on: September 05, 2012 11:39:32 AM
Hi all!

I'm starting a little project right now to experiment with casting wax / hot glass over and into natural objects to create a texture log for myself.

I was wondering if anyone happened to know of any useful websites or books that would be related to my endeavor? I'm trying to find other artist's experiences and outcomes that I can look to for guidance; searching on Google is proving quite difficult though because it equates "texture" to image backgrounds for use in Photoshop (gack! so frustrating!).

A search for textures via leaf imprints led me to a Craftster page and I thought, "Doy, I should just ask a giant community of artists!"

So while I'm Googling away, can anyone refer some art/craft pieces using natural texture my way?

12  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Re: Is 90 coe glass thinner than other glasses? Anyone know? on: September 03, 2012 06:01:18 PM
I can't give a double confirmation on speedingpullet's 90 v 96, unfortunately.

I can definitely confirm that I've never heard of a sheet of 90 being specifically thinner than another type of glass though.

And good luck, I hope pullet is right! And even then, I hope your test comes out conclusive! When it's in tube form for flameworking, the only way people in my studio can even attempt to tell soft from boro is the tint of green or blue at the end of the tube!

Alright this thread is from 2007, but earlier in 2012 other people were posting, so why not?

I stumbled upon this and I love it to bits and pieces! I'm going to drive myself into the ground trying to figure out how to duplicate this on glass!

I am not an expert on this sort of stuff by any means (so don't take my word for it), but if you need to coat your beachball in something (ideally clear I'm guessing), would epoxy work? Since we use it at school to laminate glass together I'm going to safely assume that it at least falls under the category of 'hard as glass'.
