Good beginner's lesson -- thank you. I have two comments:

I typically have better luck ramping up slowly to a bubble squeeze (the traditional 50/hr after an initial soak temp to the bubble squeeze, so for me -- sys96 -- hold at 1100 and then ramp at 50/hr to 1250 and hold the allotted time).

Interesting that you left off using shims/chads.

Keep the great info coming :)

Hi, I have had problems with the special glass to change the silver to gold. The bubbles formed are large and distort the work. How can I avoid that?

Hi Katie,

Do you have a photo? Also, can you tell us more about the materials you are using, how they are arranged, and give us your firing cycle?

Looking forward to learning more about your project!
