I am beginner with glass and encountered a problem. Please help me with some advice if you can…
I did a round pendant (diameter 30mm) of dichroic glass. Initially I brushed round shaped clear glass layer that goes on top. I superimposed dichroic glass and I burned it in the oven.
Finally after the burning, all around on the pendant there is a thin opaque streak from the polished edge of the clear glass.
My question to you is: what should I do not have this stripes from polishing the shape.
I tried a subsequent polishing with cerium oxide and felt, but I could not remove the streaks.
Mention that if the clear glass is in square format – no subsequent polishing, pendants turn out very well. But I want to make pendants of various shapes, and that means to sand the edges but then I have that streak after burning.
Many thanks…July 2, 2013 at 12:07 am #12988wordanaParticipant
It sounds as if you are experiencing devitrification from the ground edges. This can usually be resolved by scrubbing the edges thoroughly before firing.
