She still likes playing with the flakes in the vial and since she dug half of it I guess I have to agree.

    Surprisingly the pour went perfect and there was a nice bar under the pile of flux!

    Wow that is nice, I just watched a video on that Kiln and dang that looks kinda fun! Do you polish it up and put it in a glass box afterwards?

    It came out pretty nice with a little flux stuck to it. I stuck it in some vinegar for a couple hours and it came out all nice and shiny!
