    @msfischer That sentence 1/2way down should read, "thus it is meant to withstand high temperatures/heat, and should not burn-out during kiln-firings." (I should not have changed my mind about a word in the middle of typing the sentence, for I then forgot to remove the "not".)

  • jeannetanks Feb 06, 2014

    @msfischer Since your post is old, you might have already discovered the answer through experimentation or might have received a reply from Delphi by now. The ceramic fiber was originally developed during the Reagan Admin in the StarWars project, when researches were looking for a product to use as tiles for reentry vehicles, thus it is not meant to withstand high heat, and should not fire-out during kiln-firings. If you sandwich the fiber between two pieces of glass, without the ability to retrieve the fiber after firing (to pull or flush it out), the fiber becomes a permanent part of your glass. Not a problem, if you can use that to an advantage in your overall design, where it becomes an inclusion just like you might purposefully develop an inclusion of copper between glass. Otherwise, it's could be an ugly white distraction.

    If you place a 1/8" fiber cutout/shape on top of a piece of glass and then put another piece of glass on top of the fiber paper where the paper will be enclosed in between the layers, what happens to the paper? Will you see the paper in your finished product?

  • zuzzie Dec 04, 2012

    I'd like to see both a pattern bar video and a rigidizer video. Also, more info about the safety of using these fiber products and whether it's necessary to wear a mask to avoid breathing in fiber or fiber dust.

  • wlellis1 Sep 26, 2012

    Very interesting video. I too would like to see some examples of using fiber blanket and rigidizer to form molds. great idea.

  • DAVISFSU Aug 21, 2012

    I have thin fire paper, 1/8th inch fiber felt and some pieces on fiber blanket left over from building a raku kiln and I teach my high school kids about these products based on what I've learned from books and experimentation. this short video was very good and I will show it to my classes. Q: Do you think you could make another short video showing examples of using the rigidizer to create forms to slump with? Also perhaps one with more info about making pattern bars or using the fiber board for drop molds? For example showing how many firings you get out of each fiber board cut out, or how you stack the glass for patterns and some examples before and after? Thanks.
