Yep, now is the time to think about fall craft shows … just sent in my application for Merry Marketplace at Bethany Methodist Church, Austin on Nov 7. Need to organize a fall party in early September too.
Recently I used a new glass technique … stacking small pieces of different colors of dichroic glass, and layering with clear. It is all fused together then the glass is cut into pendants, ground to shape and fire-polished. Verry please with the results. Here is the steps.
4) Grind glass to refine the shapes. Then fire-polish (run the kiln for shorter, lower temperature cycle that will cause the cut edges to slightly melt and be shiny, but not change the shape of the piece.)
