Leaded vs Unleaded
[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]And then suddenly somebody, somewhere decided that leaded glass was not going to be used, i don’t know why,maybe somebody out there in the world can tell me why.
At first i hated the new glass, but now i like it, it doesn’t stain and it doesn’t break as easily, there is only one problem, i have to set my fires a bit hotter to be able to bend comfortably with the new unleaded, so when i use some of my old stock leaded glass the fires are to strong for that glass and i have to lower the intensity of the fires, but what happens when you are bending and you have to use both types of glass for a job, then you have to bend one and finish with that glass and then go to the other glass, which slows you down.
If you are just starting in neon glass bending, don’t use leaded glass, use only unleaded glass because if you get used to the leaded and then go to the unleaded then it’s going to feel like you are starting from the beginning again, it’ll be confusing.
If you are having problems bending the new unleaded glass it’s probably because you have not set up your fires hot enough, once they are hot enough you will be bending like usual.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”2555″ img_size=”medium” alignment=”center” onclick=”link_image”][/vc_column][/vc_row]
