Glass not fully fusing
- December 30, 2011 at 1:51 pm #9734Diana MParticipant
New to glass fusing and just tinkering with some 2 and 3 layer glass tiles. I have an SC2 kiln and using Spectrum 96 glass. My problem is that I can’t seem to get the glass to fully fuse, only to tack fuse. They still look great, but I am looking for a flat surface and am not sure how/what to adjust to make this happen. Any tips?

What temperature are you taking your pieces to?December 30, 2011 at 8:13 pm #12362Diana MParticipant
My third segment is 100 to 1250 for 30 minutes,and my 4th is full speed to 1475 for 10 minutes.
Thanks for any insight!December 31, 2011 at 4:33 am #12363VernelleParticipant
Try a longer hold at 1475. Fusing is visual. If you have a peephole of some type, check it periodically to see if it has the look you want.December 31, 2011 at 1:55 pm #12364Stephen RichardParticipant
Review the Bullseye techincal note on heat and glass:
This will give you lots of information on what to expect at various temperatures.
