Well, I finally did it! I went out and made some eyes yesterday. Pictures are coming, they're still in the kiln.

I did blue ones, those seemed easiest from the instructions in the tutorial. I had...

Sweet!

Thanks Kathie! I also emailed Cynthia and she suggested I file them as well. So, that's on my to do list. I can't wait to fire up the torch tomorrow! It's going to be a great day!

They need some tweaking. They won't allow even a 20 gauge wire to go through the slit. It's pretty rough, so I'm sure some...

I have the pink and the amber stuff, I think I got about a pound of each when I was ordering it. Where do you still get it, and is the aqua still available?

I saw this exhibit, too! The agave were my favorite, but the entire collection was really cool. I have to admit, I was one of the "oh, GOD, he's so over-rated" camp before I went to the garden...

YES!

If you don't have a thick enough rod, melt a blob at the end and poke a hole in for the "tailstock holder" part of it.

That will work for you.

Trey Cornette talks about using 104 on 96, and he doesn't recommend it, either.

You can do 96 raku on 104, but not 104 raku on 96. I think it has to do with the technical response you got in post...

Bastards.

Seriously, if'n ya don't wanna do it, don't. It takes all the fun out of melting glass if you're stuck doing something you absolutely don't want to do.

Hades can sometimes react like intense black. It's a nice, saturated black. 104 and made by CiM.
