Installation/experiments

Last night’s glass powder and frit experimentation.

This time I poured the powder onto some Bullseye kiln shelf paper (thin fire).
Lowered my fusing temperature 1490 to 1480 with a ten minute hold.

Massive devitrification. I’m not sure if the temp was to high for this particular colour? At first the glass appeared to have the Thin Fire stuck all over it. I’m hoping that it has nothing to do with the kiln shelf paper and is just the nature of the transparent turquoise (001116-0008).

At the moment I’m firing up some Bullseye opaline. For this I’ve set the fusing temp to 1420 hoping to get the glass to strike yet stay translucent. Sunday evening I’ll try another Bullseye powder on the Thin Fire and see if the results differ.
