WIP - Using rods again

Well today I thought while I had some spare time I would play with the rods that I had cleaned a week or more ago. These are in a pretty pink, purple and pinky/purple colour. The colours are a little hard to see in the picture below. I am using a different camera to usual plus dodgy lighting =


The edges of the rods were a little rough so I decided to use my dremel to grind the edge a little more neat. They aren't as good as I wanted but then again I don't want it perfect.
To hold the rods in place in the kiln this time I decided to make a little craddle type of thing with the fire paper. I didn't want to fold the edges up too much incase the fire paper fell in on the glass when its being burnt off.
However one side thought it would fall in on the glass. So this isn't the full fuse. I have left this to cool off and hopefully the fire paper will just wash off but if not then I will grind it away a little bit and fuse it again so it'll be nice and smooth.

Hi Bree,
You are very clever! You have made some beautiful pieces, I especially like the aqua cab with the transparent speckles.

It would look great as a ring.

Thank you Cheeky!!

The aqua cab is probably a little too big for a ring. But I could definately make a small one! Good idea!
