Product Description

Mandrels are made of stainless steel and have a very low heat transfer. This means your fingers will stay cool even while you're working in a direct open flame. Use the bead rake to manipulate molten glass by dragging, raking, feathering or swirling the surface. You can also create air bubbles or poke holes through the glass; a bent tip provides a more comfortable grip. Set includes twelve 3/32" mandrels and bead rake.

Pros : The bead rake has both a straight end and a bent end which allows the user to determine which method of holding the rake suites them best. The mandrels are stainless steal which is great because they don't rust. They are nice and straight which helps form a nice round bead.
Cons : These mandrels are a little large. They are almost 1/8" so when you add bead release your hole will be a bit larger. Make sure this is the size hole you want in your bead.

Well, hello there Carlise, my name is Cere. Its nice to meet you. As a flameworker, the most powerful tool at our disposal is the torch. From raw gas to burning flame, the torch provides the energy needed to take glass from solid state to molten magic. As someone that typically works with Borosillicate glass (32 or 33 COE), I tend to work towards the hotter parts of the flame, however, if you work with Moretti (104 COE), or soft glass, you may find the cooler areas beneficial to you. No matter what kind of glass you are melting in your torch, when properly familiar with the parts and type of the flame, you can bring your work to new levels.

No oneknowstheexactorigins of glass fusing although there is evidence that the Egyptians were familiar withrudimentary techniques. The Romans however arenoted by scholars for developingrefined glass fusing skills. Although technology has changed the way modern glass fuserswork,the technique isessentially the same as those developed by the Romans centuries ago. The basic technique involvesstacking two or morelayers of fusible glass, which are then placed in a kiln and gradually heated to between 1450-1500 Fahrenheit.At these temperatures the layers of glass fuse, or melt together and become one. Unfortunately, glass kilnsare large andexpensive,whichkeeps most Hobbyists from pursuing this art form. Now there are new kiln options, including theThe Fuseworks Microwave Kiln. This device works in most household microwaves and can fuse glass in about 3 minutes. Here are some common questions we get on fusing in this modern-day kiln. The following are Q A complied by Diamond Tech, the manufacturer of Fuseworks
