    Re: glass alchemy changes

    Grammar nazi alert - feel free to ignore me. I don't at all mean to pick on people - but I thought of this while driving home and thought maybe someone will find it amusing.

    Re: Eric's progression

    I'm really not sure that's a different story - unless said friend is a glassblower who actually knows what "not annealed" means (in which case, they probably don't want it). And you can explain the...

    Re: Help me out!

    Crap - am I middle aged, or a young adult? That last question is making me depressed... wish you'd just put age ranges in numbers. Guess I'll bite the bullet and say i'm middle aged. Ouch. sadface.

    Re: Buying Glass for the first time

    Some people are saying get asian for when you're starting out - I'd caution against that advice, since it can be very discouraging if your work cracks and you don't know why (and even worse of a...

    Re: Champs Atlantic City

    So... time to make some new designs?

    Also, why are you resurrecting a thread from a year and a half ago? This thread was probably about champs 2015.

    Thanks for responding!! I completely missed the message a few posts up - doh! Hadn't checked this forum in a couple days - and was all "oh shit, I gotta let people know I shitbagged asap" the...

    Gah! So sorry - I just realized I completely spaced on packing them up and sending them out. I've had the ones I'm sending in picked out for like a week, and just forgot. Should I be sure to send...

    Re: Rays Progression

    Whether or not you use wax is more a function of what you're doing than just the material of the tool. When metal heats up, it will stick to glass, and if you want to prevent that, yeah, you need...

    Jackass, great point - you don't *have* to do anything. Honestly, I do it for aesthetics rather than being able to see what you're lighting - it just looks more professional, imo - like, that last...

    Re: Rays Progression

    Dunno why you'd do a hot seal punty there... that punty is just for stretching the stem of the pipe, right? I'd suggest a cold seal for that.

    The note with your name and the date has to be the same picture as the thing you're selling. The idea is to show some evidence that you actually have the product. You could easily have taken a pic of...
