At some point I’m going to ditch the Slumpys mini pot melts and come up with my own rig using terra cotta pots. That way I won’t be restricted to melting disks just 6 and 8 inches in diameter. With this most recent melt I decided to try add a white border around it to make a blank for a plate. I got myself a 10 inch stainless steel ring and some white Uroboros frit.
Now if this works out OK then instead of buying ready-made frit I’ll get and 5 pound bag of white opal odd cut scraps and crush it myself. The scraps cost less about 60% less than bulk frit ($23.00 vs 52.00). I’ll post the results tomorrow.
Blown glass pendants
I mentioned last time I was about to fire polish some of the scarp blown glass I had gotten. Here’s a few pics of how they turned out. I’ll need to fire polish some of them again since I added a bevel and not all of them polished smoothly.
And now for…
The Disgusting Thing
Nuff said!. The secret will be revealed tomorrow.
