ok...I know I am waaaay ahead of myself here (the kiln doesn't even arrive until next week) but I would love to know the answer to this...

"Contemporary Fused Glass" by Brad Walker..Page 90 ..Nested Waves. How would the lovely "brush" marks be fused on the glass ?

I am assuming this is not a secret technique, if it is I appologise for asking.

Sorry, I didn't mean the shape...I meant the markings. I'm assuming these are added with maybe a paint of some kind, before slumping....

I know you didn't mean the shape.  The blurb tells you though... Wink

Oh dear...I must be very dim....I still can't find anything on it. But I will work on it :-)

I can't help, my version of contemporary warm glass must be different to yours, I can't find the piece you are asking about (it's certainly not on page 90!)

"Fused to create texture, then slumped"

As far as I can tell, there's no paint, it's purely textured, coloured glass.

Oh.. so in this case, it is just a question of finding the correct glass..I had assumed there was more to it than that.

I really like the colours...

I now have a kiln large enough to do more than coasters so am looking for a comprehensive beginners warm glass book so I don't have to constantly ask my daughter how to do things.  would you recommend this book or suggest any others?

"Fused to create texture" means the texture is in the mould.

No, it would have started life as smooth, coloured fusible glass. As it says, it was then fused to create texture. It would have then been fired again into a slumping mould (it would have been done in two separate firings)

I now have a kiln large enough to do more than coasters so am looking for a comprehensive beginners warm glass book so I don't have to constantly ask my daughter how to do things.  would you recommend this book or suggest any others?

Pauline, in my opinion, it is a great book to start with - the main difference between the two versions is the earlier one, whilst technically competent, I thought the projects were sometimes a bit dated - I've barely looked at the new version recently - the main reason I got it is so that if my students ask me to recommend a book, I can have that to hand to show them - it contains good, solid, reliable information on a variety of kiln techniques.

Another great source of information is Bullseye - their tip sheets have loads of useful techniques and advice too.

Thank you for the help with this.

I'm sure it will be a while before I am confident enough to attempt something like this but it is something to aim for.



With regard to the book...It has a lot of information in it but it is the only one I have so I am unable to comment as to whether it is good or not.

I am thinking of subscribing to the Bullseye tutorials ($39/26 for the year) and will have a look on Amazon for more books.

I know I can get almost all the info I need online and from excellent forums like this but I like to actually look at BOOKS (and yes I do have a Kindle Fire  Grin)
