Kiln for a variety of purposes


#1

I am looking to buy a kiln to use in my high school jewelry classes.
I would like to be able to enamel, fire PMC, anneal, and possibly do
fused glass. Does anyone have suggestions as to what kiln would be a
good one to get. We are not casting yet, but there is that
possibility in the future so if it could be used for burnout that
would be good.

Thanks,
April

April - Paragon makes some excellent kilns that will work for your
metal clay, enamel and fused glass work (as well as lampwork
annealing). It is usually recommended that you do your melting for
casting in a different kiln or by torch rather than have potential
metal contamination come from the kiln to any glass you may have in
the kiln. I have an SC2 that I use extensively. It’s probably too
small for your use, so I would recommend looking at the SC3 or some
of their other kilns. Arnold is a terrific help, don’t hesitate to
give him a call.
