BULLETIN BOARD

We will use this section for any announcements that you may want to share with others. In addition, we would like to offer a tip or trick of the month. You can email us at info@c3studiosinc.com

TIP OF THE MONTH:
We just hosted Kate MacLeod for 2 classes, one involving make frit balls. Kate's firing schedule for frit balls varies from ours. Kate lives in a very dry climate while we are sometimes extremely humid. Using Kate's schedule we experienced some devit on the 1808 and 1414 colors. Try this schedule for our area:
9999 to 1500 and hold 10 minutes, then off. Each kiln is different and some colors behave differently so adjust the end temperature and/or the hold time. Bullseye Glass has a new online video demonstrating "How to Make Frit Balls". If you join to watch, use us as your affiliate so that we can earn some credits. You win, C3 wins, and Bullseye wins.
