    Re: Need some help with Fuming

    Okay, gotcha. What I've been doing is taking that fumed rod I pictured above and lay on a few clear stripes, then twist it up. I then put on a black backing to see what the fume looks like.

    Re: Need some help with Fuming

    Hi Mute!

    Thanks so much for your post. I think I might have understood what you mean. After I encase this fume, it should travel up into the encasement. Did I understand you correctly?

    Also,...

    Re: Need some help with Fuming

    Okay, so I gave it another shot, but no success, unfortunately. Here's what the rod looked like after fuming:

    Hi! Thanks for the reply!

    I hadn't read the Honeycomb thread before, and the technique outlined in that thread is very different to what I normally do. I do have a couple of questions:

    Need some help with Fuming

    Hello everyone

    Fair point! I've added a small edit to my post above so people can read your reply too. Thanks Mute!
  10. Re: Does gas pressure effect the way the glass reacts to heat?

    Flame chemistry should not affect how your glass flows when shaping the maria. In order to get a smooth maria, you need to establish a good heat base in the glass first, before you compress your...

    Re: Burning Dichroic

    Thank you all so much for your replies! I think the mistake I was making is that I assumed that the dichro could not burn after encasement, so I was working the piece really hot (I'm talking a really...

    Hi everyone!

    I'm currently trying to learn how to work with dichroic, but I've been having some issues with burning the dichroic.

    Re: Chinese Opaque White - Where did it go?

    I've been trying to work with this new Jade white. How do you deal with the semi-transparency of the color? I've been using it to learn, and it's somewhat difficult to see when you do things like...

    Re: Aommaster's Progression

    Hi!


    It's very likely I was pushing a lot. How do you deal with the divot that starts to form at the center of the maria once you start imploding?

    The PDF sounds really good. How much does...

    If you're interested in other "flower-y" colors, you could also try out the Asian Opaque purple. It works really nicely too if you use purples in your work. This was the second implosion I did, this...

    Chinese opaque pink seems to be working well for me. Just a note, I'm very new to glassworking, and don't have nearly as much experience as the other folks here. But it seems to implode fairly...

    Thank you all for your replies! How do the Handy Andy's actually pierce the glass? Won't it leave a very thin "film" of glass at the contact point between the tweezers?

    I liked the opaque white too. I believe it was replaced by the Striking Opaque White. Why, I am not too sure and I cannot vouch for that color either. However, some of the more experienced members on...
