The Wet Canvas Art Glass forum, though currently not very active, still has incredible resources. Here's a direct link to the Best of WC's technical pages and tips, indexed by Maureen Kennedy: http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?t=464446

You'll recognize lots of familiar names and their invaluable inputs into techniques.
