Thinfire Paper

Postby johnboy_14 » Thu Sep 14, 2017 2:08 am

Need some help

I haven't been fusing long but hit a a few issues with using my kiln

When I use thinfire paper it leaves marks on the top on the bottom of the glass, like clear outlines not sure why this is. Tried preheating the kiln, ensuring the pieces of glass have been cleaned etc.

The pieces of glass haven't been grinded, just cut normally

I then tried kiln wash which solved the line issue but I like the final result with the paper.

Please help

Thanks

Hi,

I am sure you have some kind of marks, but I can't see them in the photo. Can you send us another view? I am not familiar with this issue, except that people sometimes get bad results firing iridescent surfaces against ThinFire Paper.

Did you glass spread out beyond the footprint of the piece of ThinFire?

If not, and if the line is in between cut pieces of glass that were against the ThinFire during firing, it may be that some ThinFire residue was trapped as two pieces of glass flowed together. Does either of these seem like a possibility?

It's very hard to tell from the pictures. Are you using a single, continuous sheet of thinfire, or are you piecing it together? One of the marks looks like where two pieces were butted against each other. This will leave a line.

Hi

Thanks for replies

No it didn’t spread beyond the footprint or be against. It was a continuou sheet. When I use a kiln wash I don’t get this but I like the finish of thinfire paper.

It is very frustrating as I have tried different thinks to try and eradicate it
