I’m having lots of fun!!

Ohhhhh now I see why people like boro! No snap, crackle, pop!! The glass just melts so easily and nothing is cracking and breaking. After some research I think that this is because it is on the lower end of the thermal expansion scale (soda-lime (Moretti, etc.) glass is on the higher end) which means you can jam that 10mm rod right into the flame with no worries! Woohoo! 😀 This also makes boro good for sculpture which is what I was hoping to use it for. I also found out that boro is 10% lighter than soda-lime glass because it is less dense, I think this will helpful for some fun larger items that I want to try and I think are too heavy to wear in soda-lime. I have made a few large center holed flowers, hearts, etc. and all is going great! Now I will just have to see what YOU all think of it… heehee…
