I’m making some fused glass suncatchers for a craftshow. Check my kiln and for some strange reason some of my dircrohic detail work has popped off a few of the suncatchers. What would cause this?
I tacked glued them on with thined white glue, they dried and then I placed them in the kiln.
I’v actually made these suncatcher before and I’m using the same firing as last time. I had a perfect firing.
Any advise on what may be the cause?

have you made sure your kiln is still level?August 21, 2010 at 4:10 pm #11695AnonymousInactiveAugust 23, 2010 at 12:57 am #11696
Yes my kiln is level. I have a paragon GL24 front loading kiln. I’v had it now for about 5 years.

The glass popped off in some areas. While the actual suncatcher remained in tack. It was the dichroic detail that popped off around 1089 degrees.
I took a peek through one of my peep wholes and noticed that a few of the dichroic pieces had popped off and flipped over. The pieces I’m speaking of are very, very small. When I realized what had happened I aborted my firing.
After the kiln cooled I repositioned the pieces and fired again with no problems. I was just wondering what might have caused this to happen.
