Tips Tuesday – Testing 1,2,3

The latest, greatest new glass arrives and I can’t wait to use it.  I know just what I’m going to do and make a big, juicy set complete with extras.  I anxiously await the annealing process only to pull out….  something yucky.  Haven’t we all done this? 

My tip for this week is to make test beads.  Fight the urge, be good to yourself and make just a few test beads to put in the kiln.  Really, you’ll be glad you did each time you see only one yucky bead instead of complete set.

Feel free to comment on testing glass.  Blog about it at your site and post the link or just add your two cents.

Tips Tuesday – Etching Beads

I love the smooth, silky feeling of beads etched right.  When I first started etching beads, I used Etch-all and a dunk in baking soda solution to neutralize the acid.  Often I was left with a chalky feeling and bits of white residue.  I now use milk.  Any milk with fat in it will do.  After you pull the beads out of the etching solution, drop them in a cup of milk.  The milk will curdle, but when you rinse off your beads I think you will be pleased with the results.  If they are transparants, they actually glow a bit in the light.
