Look! He even responds to my title! Awesomesauce!!!
As some of you know, I've been playing at glass fusing for the last few months with a little microwave kiln and decided just after Christmas to ask people to donate towards a proper grown-up kiln for my birthday.
After doing *a lot* of research I decided on a kiln and I've been talking to a kiln-seller for the last few weeks. One thing led to another and I somehow ended up with £260 less in my bank account and a massive box waiting for me on my doorstep when I got in from work the other day. (Seriously the box was 70cm square!! The kiln's not much bigger than a sheet of A4 paper)
Of course, I needed to try it out to make sure it worked and that it hadn't been damaged in transit and that all the kiln walls were in good condition and that it actually, y'know, fuses glass so I cranked it up and set off on a test run.( see my stupidly frivolous purchase behind the cut! )
