Fused Glass Art Kiln Pressed Glass How to Remove Kiln Wash

Just wondering if anyone knows how to remove kiln wash from fused glass - other than sandblasting. We don't have sandblasting equipment. We do have a grinder, lap wheel, and a dremel with attachnments. I don't know how I can hang on to the piece to hold it on the lap wheel as it is only about 4" in diameter, and flat (1/8" thick). Any ideas appreciated!

I will attend the Glass Craft and Bead Expo in Las Vegas the beginning of March - looking to learn new techniques and excited to see all the new supplies and glass.

I hosted a tie dye birthday party in my studio yesterday. The kids made tie dyed pillow cases, balloon animals and origami book marks. It was great - the kids were all well mannered and fun!

We are looking forward to babysitting our grandkids while their parents have winter vacations in Jamaica and Peru...glad they didn't make plans to go see the Giza Pyramids in Cairo!

I tried making a small piece of kiln pressed glass this weekend. The technique worked well so I was pleased with that...but now to get the excess kiln wash off. If I can figure that out, I will post a photo.

Stay warm...windchill is minus 31 here today. Brrr!

About Me

North Dakota, United States
Born and raised in Williston, North Dakota. Degrees in Occupational Therapy (never chose to work in the field) and Visual Arts. Married for 33 years to a super wonderful guy, three daughters - all three are talented, educated, contributing, beautiful members of our great big world. I am so proud of them...they are my best accomplishment to date! I love to make art and teach about it, too. An etsy friend recently shared this quote with me from St. Francis of Assisi: "He who works with his hands is a laborer, he who works with his hands and his head is a craftsman, he who works with his hands, his head and his heart is an artist." I think it is a wonderful statement!
