The Skutt bead kiln (GM10F) is a little more, but it's almost always on sale here: http://store.allstainedglass.com/noname33.html. If you're not in a hurry, they go down to about $650 every now and...

Until recently, I tossed shorts (2" long or so) unless they were expensive or rare. Now I keep them in a box because I threw away so many shorts of old Moretti white and really regret it. You never...

Thanks, Carmen. Just knowing it's useful for some people is enough. Maybe I got some good karma / positive energy from the project. I feel pretty fortunate to have a good job right now.

Birdy, try using CiM colors for the shells. It's stiffer than Moretti and is a little easier. You could also make them out of a transparent color. Once you get the hang of making them, try them in...

I know the Hades is more intense than Moretti/Vetrofond, and I think the Tuxedo is just a regular black. At least that's the impression I have of Tuxedo (I haven't tried it). Maybe someone can say...

Sounds like the perfect excuse to buy an electric mandrel spinner to me. A pin vise might also work (near bottom of page: http://arrowsprings.com/html/mandrels_tubes.html).
