    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?

     

    Thank you,

    have you made sure your kiln is still level?

    Are you saying the glass moved while firing – or that the pieces came apart after the firing was complete?

    Hi Pam,

    Yes my kiln is level.  I have a paragon GL24 front loading kiln.  I’v had it now for about 5 years.

    Hi Paul,

    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.
