Reply To: Kiln Pressed Glass
Am thinking of trying this technique myself and having read the infosheet I am still puzzled about two things and wondered if you could say what you did:
Firstly, what thickness did you press the glass down to. The guide just says use kiln paper but no indication of which thickness might be best!
Secondly, how much weight did you have to apply on top of the upper shelf? Obviously has to be enough to overcome the power exerted by the natural surface tension, but now much is enough?
As for why yours broke, could it be down to the number of firings? I was always told that 4 was the maximum and you should preferably use fewer if possible. Or does this method change this rule and enable additional firings without compromising the glass?
