For some reason I thought you were working on a line of glass, like Serendipity with sparklies.

I might be the one needing coffee. LOL

Yep... I am... it just didn't ring a bell that early... I have to fire up the boro furnaces again... the experiments went well and I made enough to play with (LOVE IT)... when I get it ready to sell, I'll be sure to announce it loud and clear.

For people with "burning through the mandrel" problems. Try working with a neutral to slightly reducing flame, if your colors will work that way. When you have an oxidizing flame, you essentially have a cutting torch. Steel loves to burn in oxygen!

I love learning the chemistry of glass and glass-related things! I hated chem in high school, liked it more when I took it as an adult, and now it fascinates me. If I'd known in high school that glass was chemistry I'd have been MUCH more interested!
