Note: not all kilns are alike. Your kiln size, controller type, and individual project may require some alteration to the schedule for best results.
Delphi Tip: Clean Y-96 glass thoroughly with a non-ammonia glass cleaner before firing to get a smooth, gloss finish in your fired art. Cap with clear for an extra glossy finish.

When and how did you get started in stained glass? Ive been interested in stained glass for as long as I can remember.

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.
