Reply To: Fusing schedule to just soften edges after sawing
The problem with a full fuse with a less than 1/4 inch piece of glass is the surface tension that glass tends toward. Like water that beads up on a polished car, glass wants to do a similar move. It seeks a 1/4 inch thickness, which is what causes the distortion you mentioned.LaurieMae is spot on with her suggestion. However, if it is still not working the way you want it to look, you may have to do some experimenting with your firing schedule. Like raising your top temp 5 to 10 degrees to see what that temp change does for you. I know it sounds like a lot of work, but if you keep good records, you will learn a lot and will have a database for future projects.
Hope this helps.
