Default Can Glass be Re-Worked after being Annealed?

I have a little pendant that I finished 2 days ago which I annealed but I forgot to melt the punty marks off I was just so ready to get it in the kiln before it cracked. Hopefully I don't ruin it by donig this but I've put it in the kiln to wam up and am going to attempt to just melt a little bit of the punty off that's stuck to the bottom from where I broke it off. I'll let you know how it goes but I haven't read anywhere about re-melting glass after it's already been annealed. It'll be interesting to see how it turns out. I tried to do this on another one but i made the rookie mistake of trying to remelt it when it was cold and it cracked. Hopefully this will make a difference.

Agree with the post.

With boro, place the piece in a cold kiln and ramp up to your annealing temperature. Remove and in some cases it may be necessary to slowly bring the piece back to working temperature in the flame.

Use this technique and it has worked every time.

When finished, place back into the hot kiln and anneal, etc.
