It’s cool being on the mailing lists for the “right” companies and Bullseye is one of those “right” companies. Glass info is always good. So in this newsletter they have a tip for what to do if you have some devit on the surface of your kiln fired glass. For those of you that don’t know about devit here’s a bit of devit info…devit is short for devitrification, which is the formation of crystals on the surface of your glass. It’s kind of icky. Not a desirable look. To solve it they suggest you re-fire your glass with a coating of clear powder on it. Do that and, ta da, no devit. Yes you do have to re-fire but there’s no devit and that’s a good thing. Check out some of their other tips on cleaning your glass and other helpful hints on their web site.
