    I had a fused glass project explode. That hasn’t happened to me in years but have a new kiln, new size, a computer controller instead of manual…too many changes! I’ve cut out the good sections from the mess and will replace the bad sections and will then turn it all into a stained glass window instead of a solid fused panel (never give up). One of the sections picked up a texture on the bottom that may be mis-interpreted as a crack by a potential buyer. Does anyone out there know if I can refire a painted piece up to full flat fuse temps without boiling and/or destroying the already fired tracing black on it?

    Thanks very much in advance.

    I have found that you can fire tracing paints up to full fuse temperatures without loss of paint, although it may expand a little.

    I am tracing glass with the Black Reusche.  Does it need to be covered before firing?

    It is best to fuse the tracing black to the base layer BEFORE capping with another layer of glass.
