Despite the error of my ways, I ended up with some very pretty glass using two colors of opal art glass scraps. With my screen melt complete, I used a Sharpie pen to trace out my images, and began cutting them with my Taurus 3 Ring Saw. Once I finished the shapes, I put the pendants and purse hangars back in my skutt Firebox 14 kiln, for a fire polish on the slow tack fuse. Some got bails, some wire wrapping, and the others were epoxied to purse hangers. Looking back, If you follow the Delphi directions labeled as users manual in the

13 Tips for a Tidy Craft Space

13 Tips for a Tidy Craft Space We scoured the web, asked our Delphi artists, questioned our fans on Facebook, and finally came up with 13 easy-to-implement tips for keeping things clutter-free.
