Heavily textured glass

Postby makeitsharpe9 » Thu Dec 21, 2017 12:28 pm

Hello.

I bought a sheet of red glass a year or so ago it was stunning but as I had just started in glass I thought I would wait until I was knowledgeable enough to use it. Its so nice I just want to cut a disc from it and add another sheet of testa but I would like to retain the texture of the red glass please can some one help me with a schedule then I will slump in a mould 380mm dia x 40mm deep.

Happy New Year to you, too!

That number does not correlate with our style numbers for solid red glass. Do you have a multicolored streaky sheet?

You can find suggested cycles for our slumping molds here: http://www.bullseyeglass.com/methods-id ... dules.html

That style includes Cranberry Gold Pink which needs sufficient time in the cycle to strike. You can learn more about that with this video from our series: http://www.bullseyeglass.com/education/ ... s-162.html

Or from About Our Glass: http://www.bullseyeglass.com/cranberry- ... arent.html

It's best if you study these materials and propose a schedule. We may have additional questions. Then, any of our members can give you feedback, if you are not confident that you will get the desired results.

Thanks!

I think I must be missing some thing here nothing here is helping me determine how I fuse a sheet of 3 mm tekta and a sheet of highly textured glass but retain the texture as like herringbone black.

Oh, sorry--you won't be able to fully fuse the textured sheet to the Tekta sheet and retain the texture. However, if you wanted to consider a different texture, you could fire it face down on fiber paper or in a sand bed. Also, I apologize for not recognizing that your 3126 had the 0021 suffix, which indicated that it is a soft ripple. Those soft ripple styles are best used for stained glass or mosaic purposes.

Thanks Mary Kay. I'd always wondered what the point was of the texture in a fusing glass!!
