Thank you all for your
Thank you all for your answers, I was following the instructions given to me by the person I purchased the kiln from. Since I was clueless I just figured she would know since she had the kiln for a year.
I am now attempting to keep the kiln around 1450 to 1500. It is not easy to control the temp with the power control box, it only has numbers on it like 1 2 3. I was told to put it on 2 1/2 so I have been setting it on 2 and adjusting up or down from there. Once it reaches the right temp it only takes about 20 min. to fuse.
Actually Stephen, my glass was not in puddles, not sure how I got lucky but they looked very nice for a novice at kiln working. This is a lot less work then mosaic but sure is more frustrating!
Thanks again for all the help, I think I am starting to get the hang of it.
