Re: glass colorants

Kevin may be right. Consider using a blender or coffee grinder with clear glass powder. I can get my raw ingredients down to a powder form that is incredibly fine....like floating in the air, wear a mask fine. I frequently check the FB marketplace for deals on fusing supplies and tools. A name that ...

Re: glass colorants

I like Terry's point about the proper ratios already being composed in paints. I just bought Sunshine paint from Brad's website and it comes as a powder that you, the artist, can mix to a paint with flux and a variety of suspensions. Great video by his wife Jody showing how to do it. The Sunshines a...

Re: glass colorants

Most potent...hmm. Well you certainly started with the best: Cobalt. Doesn't take a lot of chromium to make a green. We use the potassium version because it goes into a melt better than other forms. Copper gives a light blue so it may be too weak for your application. Silver gives a really weak yell...

Re: damming circles

Thanks, Brad. I'm realizing I need to have a supply of both in the studio. The extra thickness also helps keep the glass and ring from getting too intimate.

Re: glass colorants

Hi Terry, I mix up my own glass recipes and can give you some info. I love the sound of this unique process...I'd enjoy seeing some pics. How in the world do you keep the glass from heating up at the laser point at breaking? Potassium Chromate: Green Iron Oxide: Coke bottle green Selenium: Yellow Ca...

Re: oceanside QC

Hi Bob. Have you read the posts and opinions on OC from Craftweb? The bulk of interest is in the clear glass cullet product but there has been some attention to the limited amount of color. No one can deny the price is good but you probably hit the nail with your title "QC". The cullet rev...

Re: damming circles

I tried doing this but the paper did not want to stand on it's own. Does this work with Bullseye thin shelf or are you using a thicker variety?

Vanilla (sulfur) and Coral Sunset (lead) for 96 COE!

Hi. I'm trying to recreate this reaction in 96COE. I tried this a long time ago with a glass color called Ivory. I now think that this color did not contain sulfur/selenium so I was doomed from the start! So, Oceanside is making a Vanilla that is reactive like Bullseye and I'm going to try again. Bu...
