Hale, Dale, Jon, & Wendy - Thank you so much for your kind words
TikiAno - Those decals worked real well, I fired 32 of them and they all turned out perfect. But I know you are using hi-fire, I'll have to look at the literature for maximum cone temp.
Lori - let me check the literature for you to see what the lower firing temp is. I figure for glass you would just start at the lowest temp and see what your results are. I would also put the glass in an unglazed ceramic bowl, then if it DOES melt, the bowl will contain it.
Greg & Heath - I'm afraid a BeDazzler might get me banned from TC like the gal with the glitter painted Tikis
LVG - Yes, that is a lightbulb in my logo to represent all the brilliant ideas I have. NOT REALLY!!! In my sign, it is more clearly identifiable as a skull but on the plates it does look a lot like a lightbulb.
Here's some Headhunter Harbor updates;
Finished the dinnerware
Finished John Frum
Still working on the mosaic table
The headhunter is all glazed and glued to the tabletop. Next is the tedious job of lining up all the glass tiles, cutting the partial tiles to size, and gluing them down. It's hard to tell from the photo, but the glass tiles are muted blues and greens with copper specks and streaks.
