Glass Fusing Comment by Jennifer Bonesteel on Tuesday, July 29, 2014
@cucabee your firing schedule appears to be a good one and I can't see any reason for it not to work for you. Perhaps your temperature gauge is wrong - all kilns vary a bit and this isn't entirely unusual. A solution for that can be simply experimenting with your target temperature (go a bit hotter) and hold times (hold a bit longer.) Another possible issue is that you are loosing heat out the bead door. A solution for that is to simply purchase a fiber blanket, cut it to fit the door, and use it to seal any gaps. If you are using dichroic or iridized glass the edges sometimes don't melt as smoothly as regular glass due to the coating - that could also be a part of the problem. If you continue to have issues please feel free to give our customer service department a call. We are here to help you be successful and enjoy your glass art!
