Using Silver Clay and Glass

Yesterday I promised to show you the results of trying to fire silver clay and glass. Trying to insert 104 coe glass on a prefired silver bead did not work well. Parts of the silver turned a yellowish color which was impossible to remove. Also the silver appears to have fumed the glass which means the glass now has tiny pieces of silver. This was tried at a temp of 1230 F. I had better luck when I added the silver to a prefired lampwork bead as I did on the red heart within a heart Etsy Please feel free to ask questions in comments. I will try to answer. You can contact me through a convo on http://beadsofglass.etsy.com If you found this helpful please sign up to receive this feed by email or feedburner (links on right)
