Product Description

Discover the huge range of borosilicate colors. Pack includes one 6" rod of Northstar's most popular colors, about 95 rods in all! It also includes four samples of frit in assorted sizes. It's the same as the Large Northstar Boro Sample Pack (item #NS6145L) only with smaller rods. It's an economical way to get a palette full of color.

Borosilicate is a "hard glass" with a COE of 32 and a higher melting temperature than other glass. Flameworkers love this lower COE because it means your finished projects will have a higher resistance to thermal shock and allows you to create larger or more elaborate sculptural pieces. A propane and oxygen torch is needed to achieve temperatures high enough to make this glass easy to manipulate.

When and how did you get started in stained glass? Ive been interested in stained glass for as long as I can remember. As a child, I would sit in churches and watch the (often) biblical depictions come to life when a stray ray of sunlight cast its illumination our way. Sun shadows dancing. I dabbled in many media over the years, trying to find an outlet for some of the visions careening inside, but none of them took. Drawing, painting - even watercolours - no amount of professional training could guide my hand in a satisfactory way. But then there was the glass. I lived abroad for a few years, and wound my way through Europe on my way back to the States when I finished my Peace Corps Service. My last international destination was Paris, where one of my closest friends lives as an organist. Two beautiful autumn

Chances are, right now, in reading this blog post, youre avoiding an overdue task. I too was avoiding a laundry list of work-related tasks in writing this. Procrastination is a part of life, and its certainly always been a part of mine. As a teenager, my parents would accuse me of putting off everything from piano practice to math homework. Id vehemently deny their charges hissing back, I work better under pressure. The truth was, I often felt overwhelmed, under-productive and anxious. Over the years, Ive been able to combat my avoidance issues using 4 tools. The trick is constantly reminding myself of these actions, because they do not come naturally to me. 1. Just Say No. I say yes to everything. Need someone to head up that event? Sure. Want me to design 12 posters for the Car Wash? No problem. Take your kid to daycare? Of course.
