In spit of your recommendations, I have always drawn my design/template on Thinfire and assembled directly onto the Thinfire covered shelf. I have not had problems - yet - of thinfire incorporating into the glass.

For those of us who work in Celsius, a note at the end of the video or separately in text below the video screen of the Celsius equivalents of the temperatures mentioned would be very useful.

Thanks for the tutorial. It confirmed a number of things for me and added a couple of things.

I learned a few things. The tip on holding at 1225 for 45 min to level the glass, cutting different widths to add dimension coupled with color could result in interesting pieces, framing windows with opals, and probably my favorite the steel blue effect. It will be fun to try. Thanks for the lessons

If I want the shelf side be the top in the finished piece and I want a glossy finish, will I be able to achieve that when slumping at 1325, or do I need to cold work the piece before slumping. If so what grit finish is needed.

Hi Adam,

You won't get a glossy surface at 1325°F with the shelf side flipped to the top. If you sandblast it, you can get a satin surface. For a glossy surface, I think you would need to take it as close as possible to cerium or cork.

Anyone else have more experience to share? We have lots of coldworking videos in our subscription collection. You can see the titles here: https://videos.bullseyeglass.com/index-of-videos-by-topic/
