Successful tests lead me to my first “real” project load. Wind chime (layered, stringers, frit, and scrap), returning the previously tack-fused piece to full fire, and testing “stained glass” to full fuse. Auto, Med, Full Fuse.
The results for the wind chime – awesome! It’s beautiful and it going to look great.
The refired tack-fuse piece looks much better. Next step is to slump it.
The stained glass, though, that is a fail. It’s chalky, brittle, and just not pretty.
Started the load at 5:30 pm. Wanted to see if it would be cool enough by morning. It wasn’t. I’m determined to find the right time to start to be able to open next morning!
