    Re: Need help- cracked finish

    If paint will work aesthetically I think it's your best bet. I work a dayjob in a glass hotshop that makes crackle lights and multi-layer bubble lights. I couldn't do it, I can ask tomorrow if boss...

    Well I do remember the green and pink kiln on here and I remember that guy being rude and picky anyway. That was quite a while ago, relays fail sometimes?

    Seems to be the same, the trans red number matches, 1011.

  15. Re: Some old soft glass pictures as I sort through it.

    There might be a bit more boro there than you think. I have some Colrex and all of the colors have a thin layer of clear around them, guess they were powder in a tube pulled down? Some of the...

    Re: Schott S-8 Encasement Gobs

    For a flare just think of how much glass has to move where, obviously the lip has to move the most, so you want it hot. Heat base should be tapered toward the open end, like you don't want the area...
