Post by: Lush! on February 05, 2013, 10:20:25 AM
Learn how to get more out of your Beadcube, Paragon SC2 or SC3 (see below), 4 techniques for cabochons made in the flame and kiln.

New tutorial! (http://www.flickr.com/photos/lushlampwork/8448114358/) by LushLampwork (http://www.flickr.com/people/lushlampwork/), on Flickr

Instant download from my website, also available from my Etsy shop (along with lots n lots of finished cabs)

You will need a kiln that can reach temps of around 760 degrees C - unfortunately the Maxi/Maxine doesn't get hot enough.

This looks brilliant Julie....been admiring the cabs on facebook. Would love to give this a try when I have some cash for spending again!  :)

This looks brilliant Julie and I love the idea that it is about using your kiln in a different way.  Shame I got a Maxi, should have kept my cube as a back up ;) :)  I bet this will do really really well. :)

Might be a very stupid question, but I assume these would work in a fusing kiln?

I'm sorry Hazel ... do you have a friend nearby that has a different kiln?

Just to say thanks again for sorting out my download muppetry ::) the other evening, Julie.  And the tutorial is fab - really original!  I'm away from home at the moment but it's been my bedtime reading for the past couple of nights and I'm now itching to have a go ...  ;D

They look lovely Julie - they'd be nice worked into mosaic as well (can you hear my brain whirring?)  :)

I've got an SC2 Helen - I do fusing in it as well as annealing.  You're welcome to come over and have a go.
