I really enjoy experimenting so I'm in my element right now. Starting with the petri dish tests because they are fun to make. I am testing colour palettes and different inclusions, as well as testing other types of glass. I am only really used to Bullseye glass so am a bit out of my comfort zone here but will have a go. The first picture I have put up is of a filled mould. Can you guess what I am using?
Below is the outcome of some test I did with Borosilicate glass (the type of glass that is used for Pyrex dishes. This clearly needs to be fired at a much higher temperature than Bullseye glass. I'm not overly impressed with the outcome so will go back to the Bullseye glass for now. In my next post I will have some results for you to see.
