What schedule should I use for annealing?

Since temperatures and firing schedules can vary depending on the project you're making, there's no perfect "one-size-fits-all" annealing schedule. You can learn basic principles for annealing in Technote 4: Heat & Glass.

Also, by scanning our various TipSheets, you can learn about annealing schedules for specific types of projects.

For larger-scale works, you'll want to refer to our Annealing Chart for Thick Slabs and TechNote 7: Monitoring Kiln Temperatures for Successful Annealing.
