Dear Karyn and Roberta,
You are soooo very welcome. I really enjoy sharing as it is so great to see what others come up with. Experimenting has always been a part of creating in glass for me for some time now, and new ideas and techniques are wonderful to share. Each one of us will take techniques and then change and enhance to come up with their own twist on it .
So I hope you find a friend with a saw. To me it is all about the blade toooo when sawing colour bars as it can be sooo frustrating with the wrong blade and wrong size of saw for the job. Mary Kay gave some great advice in a thread here about Saw Blades , so check it out.
Let us know how it all turns out for you.
