As promised, here are the firing schedules for fusing. This one's a FULL FUSE with BULLSEYE (6mm).

1. Initial Heat   204C/hr to 538C   0.00

2. Rapid Heat (Process Soak)   316C/hr to 804C   0.10

3. Rapid Cool (Anneal Soak)   AFAP or 9999C/hr to 516C   1.00

4. Anneal Cool   66C/hr to 371C   0.00

5. Cool to room temp.   AFAP or 9999C/hr to 25C   0.00

If anyone finds they need to tweak this schedule for an SC2 please add a new schedule below. This works successfully in a kilncare hobbyfuser.

That's fab Steph,

Here's a link to a fusing tutorial and instructions on my site, for creating Bullseye glass fully fused cabs, pendants etc. in an SC2 kiln.? I've given it a bit of a facelift since its last incarnation, and added a few more sections in honour of our new forum.?Smiley? If anyone finds any omissions or glaring errors, please let me know I'll endeavour to change it.? It's the one at the bottom of the page, the others are Photoshop tutorials if anyone fancies a go. Smiley

Cheers me dears!? Smiley

Wow Helen - lots of information on your site! I was interested to see that your soaking times are a lot longer than mine, and I'm going to try soaking for longer as I've not been too happy with some of mine, and have had to re-fuse! When I used PVA, quite often the Dichroic layers would peel and distort, no matter how sparingly I used it. I have cured that problem by using clear honey instead - sounds mad, but it works Grin

Aww thanks Cathryn. Smiley? I hope people find my 'idiot's guide' useful and there's enough info so someone can have a dabble, then research it further and experiment if they want. Smiley?

I like the honey tip - I'll have to give it a go. Smiley? I haven't had the dichro peeling as such, but I occasionally get tiny bits of discolouration?Huh I do try to keep the glue to a minimum like you say, but it's sneaky stuff and seems to have built-in radar for dichro. Grin

Hi
Just wanted to say a big thanks to Helen for her tutorial  - Ive got an SC2 with a bead door and I used your tutorial with great results I did tweek it slightly to allow for the door but look at the reasults (and this is my first fuse!)



The black one has a couple of tiny bubbles but I used very thin dichoric stringer in there and perhaps there wasnt enough of a layer.!

I forgot to write down my tweeks, but Ill check on them later and add!

The bubbles just add interest and I like all three. So glad your experience has been so positive.

Hi Zoe

Murrini are slices of decorated cane - they can be all sorts. You can make your own or buy it:
