I just received a glass order with some irid, and I'm trying to fill up the rest of a kiln load in my large Skutt. I'll have to experiment with this today. Thanks!

thanks for this; I've been trying to learn how to get the best from irids and found much of what was written just confused me. Can I just check- If I fired a irid and powder sandwich with the irid facing in can I put dichroic on top? I was told not to put dichro on irid but the glass top layer should act as a barrier.

If your irid surface is on the inside of the glass arrangement, you should be able to put dichroic glass on the top (plain) glass surface with no problems.

I've been working with BE tech support because I've been unable to log into the forum. Looks like I can log in, and post! so I thought I would mention a quick blog post I did based on a piece using the clear powder on irid technique:

Nothing fancy, but a quick, fun project :mrgreen: (and I can test out whether my account is fixed!)

I was wondering if I can use the same technique to ease the process of capping pre fired (to 700C or under) hi fire enamel painted glass...? I am using a mix of sunshine (from a UK source) and fuse master enamels.. (only mix in name - used on same sheet - not mix together). Maybe some Reushe high temps too ... and sometimes I am getting big reaction like bubbles when I cap with Tecktra. So I tried a layer of crystal clear fine frit ( Forgot it should have been powder). ANd it helped a lot but didn\'t realise that you pre fired it.
This was partly due to when I tried prefiring like you show my powder and fine frit on irrid tend to pool and separate... do you know how I avoid that pooling and separation?
THANKS

I suggest that you review this video, Making Part Sheets.
https://videos.bullseyeglass.com/videos ... rt-sheets/

Over the video, find the "Learn More" tab. Click on the tab, and then click on the Additional Information pdf for a suggested firing cycle.
