@jjplouffe This is still considered a small panel so no you don't have to reinforce it. Anything larger though you would.

I'm making a 2'x2' copper foil panel as a hanging/framed panel, not as a window panel. Is it necessary to reinforce this size project?

@twillitespirit The rounded top is achieved when the glass is taken to a full fuse.

I'm curious on how to get a "domed" or r"ounded top" (looks like half a marble) like You see on earrings, on glass cabochons?

You can use 96 COE glass in a microwave kiln.

@This can be adapted for both. The only thing that would change is the annealing temperatures. We use 900 F for 90 COE and 950 F for 96 COE glass.

@Lori B. Unfortunately when it comes to firing times in the microwave kiln there is no set schedule. It requires some trial and error. It does sound like the dichroic is burning off which makes me think 6 minutes is too long. Have you tried starting on less time? We often suggest firing for less then slowing adding more time and keeping track of the results for the desired look.

I am trying to fuse dichroic glass in my microwave kiln and it comes out colorless, none of the dichroic colors are visible. What am I doing wrong? I put in microwave for 6 minutes on high, Am I firing it too long?

@ It is necessary to fill in with cement and whiting powder as this acts as the glue that keeps the glass in place. The solder joint is only holding the zinc together.

@ Yes, Whenever you are using came you want to leave a gap just large enough for the came to accommodate it in your overall pattern.
