    Hello everyone!!
    My name is Paul and have about 30 hours of marble making experience. I can get them round and smooth but maintaining a clean pattern is rare lol.
    I think I over heat the glass, 104 COE, and I lose my patterns as they get runny. The equipment I use is M-20 oxygen maker, GTT Cheetah torch, propane, and a Jen-Ken AF3 Digital 11 X 11 X 9 Kiln With 4in Flip Door. Needless to say I am having a blast doing this.
    I would like to thank TMP for having me on the forum and am looking forward to learning from all great talent on this site. Hope to later post some pictures but I am an old guy and computer tech not my thing so bare with me. Will be lurking around on the forum reading lots of tips and tricks.

    Thank You again Paul

    hi Would love to see your marble progression.

    your guess that you are getting it to hot is probably right.

    Hi Paul! Welcome to the melting pot!

    Are you really a dentist? (I am too.)

    Hi Misha,
    As soon as I learn how to post some pics I will do so. Nothing real great but with marbles even when what you plan does not come out the marble still can look cool.
