Second Glass Fusing piece and I learn all about "dog boning"!

After watching quite a few YouTube videos last night about Microwave Kiln Glass Fusing and having really enjoyed my first experience I was itching to have another try! So, during my lunch break (I was working from home!) I rummaged through the various bags of goodies that came with kiln and settled on a blue base, 2 yellow stringers and 3 murrini.  Although I thought it came out really nice I was a bit bemused by the “dog bone” shape.  So, after a  quick post on the Facebook group asking for some advice I found out what the issue was.  The mistake I made was that you should always follow the “2 layer” rule (I won’t bore you with the details).  I’ll remember that for next time but won’t have long to wait long as the next master pieces are currently cooling in the kiln This time I’ve stacked 3 squares of different coloured glass with some other bits placed and sprinkled on top (pic to follow).
