Can I firepolish my casting?

Firepolishing is the process of heating a glass object in a kiln to a temperature high enough to impart some level of gloss to the surface.

If your piece is flat, rather than upright, you may be able to firepolish it. Since firepolishing is accomplished in the slumping temperature ranges, it should not be attempted on more upright pieces.
