    I made a plate or flat panel piece .You can see each individual strip piece in the design.  Today i am making a southwest panel/flat piece.  I was told the pieces must fit together with no gaps or i will see each piece. I have been grinding all afternoon and still see small gaps when i place on a light box.  Will thes small gaps fuse together when fired?  Now i am worried it will turn out like the first piece?.

    Thanks in advance for any help or advise



    First the more you grind the more chance you have of de-vit unless you fine grind. 2nd pieces do not need such a tight fit, glass flows.

    3rd why not try on pieces that need tight fit, fusing ‘upside down’ That is with the clear or whole piece on top. You can always fire polish right way up after slumping if you want a shiny finish.

    I would fire polish before I slump.


    Yes fire polish before slump.
