    Hello Everyone

    I have a question about repairing fused pieces.  I have been making suncatchers and have had a few “mishaps” while drilling my holes, sometimes the piece snaps apart before the drill bit gets through.  Can I use some glue to hold the pieces in place and then refire?  What fire schedule do I use, just a tack fuse? full fuse?

    Thanks

    A difficult one to answer.  It depends.  where is the hole? how far from the edge?  How big is the hole?  Will probably need something in it to keep it open.  How thick is the glass? Thinner glass will not work well.

    In any case, the join will probably be visible.
