Avoid leaded glass crystal.
Recycled glass items and window glass are perfect.
Explosions in the kiln cause costly damage to the kiln firebrick lining and elements.
- Do not use leaded crystal because it can melt in the kiln.
- Blown glass ornaments without a hole for air to escape is iffy and can explode in the kiln.
- Do not fire rock or stones because they can have pockets of water and explode in the kiln.
Total Starter Supplies will cost around $60.00 to $100.00. China painting supplies last a long time.
