@squange169 There is absolutely a chance of seeing some new videos soon. We have been working actively in house and with our vendors to provide some updated video content. Check back at ArtGlassTV soon!

@gatormichals you do need to make sure to remove ALL of the Primo Primer. You might try a dry scouring pad or light sand paper to make sure that all of the primer is removed. Nylon panty hose and paper grocery bag can also do the job effectively. We offer a new product that is replacing MR-97 - it's called ZYP - it's in stock now.

@niemanla one piece of rebar through the center should be sufficient to support your piece.

@billingsc The fiber rope compresses a bit with the weight of the glass during firing. You might try wrapping the fiber rope in a small piece of shelf paper to help it hold it's shape better. A piece of wire can be used to help push the fibers out of the hole when you're done.

@hawaiimeira sometimes video links go bad and need to be refreshed. It appears to be working fine now if you'd like to try aging. We're sorry for the inconvenience and thank you for letting us know!

@ladylinda321 I'm sorry for taking so long to get back to you. Yes, that is correct, one should do it.

@gatormichals like ovens, kilns vary and sometimes small adjustments need to be made to accomodate the kiln size, where the elements are, etc. Based on the results you got I would shorten the hold time at the highest temperature. Maybe try 30 minutes. We tested a mold like this and we found that we had to watch it as it started dropping to be sure we weren't going to fast. You don't want to open your kiln up much, but it's okay to open it just enough to peek in. Good luck!

@livinit04 cement and whiting powder should always be used in lead applications for strenth and stability.

@ladylinda321 You are very welcome! You don't necessarily need a solder line for the rebar to work but it can help to mask it. Generally, however, it's not as noticable as you might think.

@ladylinda321 if it's an interior window either method is acceptable. A panel that large will require reinforcement or it can buckle or warp over time. I spoke with my resident expert in stained glass and she said one piece of rebar running across the panel in the center (18") would suffice. The rebar would need to run from the outside edge of the frame on one side to the outside edge of the frame on the other.
