I am left wondering what other colors seemed to work well for this technique?
It appeared that in the test phase of the video lesson, that other colors were used as well.

Fountain,

With the exception of those glasses that we caution against - the transparent cadmium reds, oranges and yellows, almost any glass will work in this process - so it's really a matter of taste what you chose to use. In making this video we made props combining 0349 and 0303, 0120 and 0125, 0164 and 0303, 0216 and 0221, and 0349 and 0124 among many others.

I hope that this helps.

Thank you,

Ted

The text of the fusing schedule said to hold at 1700F for a time of one hour. The audio said to hold at 1700F for an hour and a half. Can you please clarify which would be the best to begin experimentation? 60 or 90 minutes?

I checked at 1 hour and decided to hold another 20 minutes.

Here's my first attempt. Lots of possibilities -- the conundrum is what to do with it!

I'm sorry for that inconsistency. Though it doesn't make a lot of difference whether you program to hold for an 60 mintues or 90 minutes (because you can always add time or skip to the next segment), I would tend to program for 90 minutes and begin monitoring the piece as soon as it reaches process temperature. I would then add time or skip ahead depending on what I was seeing. I would always monitor this type of firing at top temperature, but would be especially diligent about doing it for my initial investigations.

I hope that this is helpful.

Thank you,

Ted

I took a class at Snowfarm a few years ago. The instructor did a boiled glass project with us using any scrap and placing baking soda between the layers. I have to say I was not impressed with the results. Very muddled, very thick (1 inch) and full of large bubbles. I avoided doing a boiling since then. Maybe I will give it another try.

I was wondering about the top temperature range for the boiled glass. I have a kiln with a maximum temperature of 1650 degrees. Is it possible to do this technique by just using a longer hold at the 1650 temperature?
