The slumping schedule has me confused. Is the last line accurate? Thanks.

The last line of the slumping schedule should be
AFAP / 70 F / :00
just like the full fuse.

I love the petrified wood glass -- almost enough to make me cross over to the dark side :mrgreen: .

Simple video, simple piece, but also some good tips for beginners. However, I am surprised this is not offered as a free video, which is where I think you would get more bang for your buck. People would see that beautiful bowl and buy glass and molds!

The finished bowl is lovely, however, I would not describe this as 'online education' rather a marketing tool for Bullseye who, it seems, are looking to push sales of this type of glass.

As the video is mainly published for the manufacturer's benefit, I would agree that really it ought to be free.

Love this glass and this project is great but perhaps also some info about how it reacts with copper (blues) show a piece of that and any other colors that might be reactive.

Hi! Is there any particular reason for putting the clear glass on top of the Petrified Wood? Thanks!
