Over the years I have read about Thinfire occasionally curling up and leaving a haze but it has never happened to me before. Consequently, I have never felt the need to anchor the corners. (I will now! ) I just took out 3 plate blanks that had varying areas of thinfire curling resulting in that dreaded haze. I’m not sure why it happened this time, since the paper I used was from the same roll I had been using. Neverthless, I am now in a quandry as to how to remove it before flipping and fire polishing. Is it possible to clean it off without a sandblaster? Thanks, SherylDecember 28, 2010 at 7:23 pm #11383Stephen RichardParticipant
You can use fine wet and dry sandpaper wetted to remove the “haze” from the edges of the glass. Then take to fire polish to shine up again.

Thanks, Richard. (Does it necessarily have to be diamond grit?) Alas, the Christmas elves did not bring me a sandblaster again this year.December 29, 2010 at 6:11 pm #11385Stephen RichardParticipant
Diamonds are not required. Wet and dry sandpaper will do the job if kept wet.
