Grey Line Continued

Petra Keiser also talks about the grey line that is seen when one grinds glass before fusing

in her 1st Glass fusing book. She says that it is possible to avoid this be 1 yes yourve guessed it – not grinding – or 2 maybe it wont happen if you use one of the coatings that are available.

I can say that I have just fused and slumped a 12 inch square plate no grey in site. And lots of jewellery pieces using fine silver findings and no grey lines… Nothing ground. All used thinfire paper. So in my view its deffinitely nothing to do with Bullseys lovely thinfire paper.

About alfeze1

Although computing has my way of life and has been for the past 30years or so my loves are; making things inc many arts and crafts, gardening, photography, birds and wildlife and the occasional bit of sport like skiing... or at least apres ski:-) We are also involved with the NWPG and the Kennet and Avon Canal Society and crew occasionally on the Rose of Hungerford. A canal boat that runs public trips to raise money for work on the Kennet & Avon Canal. In a few months I hope to leave behind computing, and devote myself to creation instead of just fixing. I will them start to publish on a more regular basis.
