Welcome, welcome! Hope you've all joined us again!
KBJ, let me first welcome you to the thread. What a fun school
project for your son! Glad you were able to get a partial refund
for the tumbler. At present, I'm using a series of Rolling Stones
brand tumblers, but hope to try the Harbor brand soon. We hope
you will keep us updated on your son's project. Wouldn't that be
fun to win an award for his project? Whoo hoo! An A+ is on the way!
The frosty appearance will inevitably happen, taking anywhere
from three to four days, but a full week will make them absolutely
smooth and frosty. Basic sand seems to work, but will get mushy
and create a muck of sorts. Hubby has often had to help get the
lids off due to this problem. A light application of Vaseline on the
inside of the lid and the outer lip of the barrel seems to alleviate
the problem of sticky lids, at least with regard to the Rolling Stones
brand of tumblers.
Today I hope to break up and begin tumbling yet another vase, which
is pictured on this thread It was beautiful, but tipped over by a pet, breaking
the tips of the vase off, which were scalloped and rounded. Very pretty.
The vase weighs a few ounces shy of FIVE pounds, so I can't wait to see
how the glass turns out.
Brender, the image on the beginning of this thread is the olive
colored saucer I was talking about on our last thread. The pieces
in the bottom right hand corner were the plate section, with bumps.
Very neat! The other pieces are from the edges, which were scalloped,
if you will. They are dying to be made pendants!
