Blue Gold on Borosilicate - 1/8" Thick - CBS
From CBS on working Boro Dichro:
Boro Dichroic tends to work better if pre-heated. This densifies the coating and makes it more durable in the flame. This can be done in a kiln by firing the boro to 1600° F with -0- hold. Lampworkers attempt to perform this pre-firing in the flame as well. This is when it is important to keep the coated side "away" from the flame. But when kiln-firing there is no need to fire face down.
We fire all of our Boro Dichroic "face Up" in the kiln so that the coated surface does not get the slight impression of the kiln shelf onto the glass. But, if the artists wants to keep the uncoated side smooth and clear, then the Dichroic side can be faced down in the kiln and then fired.

when i wake up in the morning and i here this glass breathing next to me, i know that i'm loved. the way it shines, lyke the mid-afternoon sun, in early september, reflecting off a pond on a breezy day; and we're holding hands, listening to the sounds of the forest, and this sheet of glass turns to me and it says, "i love you", and i smyle, because i love it too.
