Your poppy lamps are beautiful Chantal - what kind of form/mold did you use with the design which assume wasyour own (i.e. not a kit like I'm considering)

That is a good idea; did you just cut a sponge to fit with an exacto knife?

Nice idea! I've cut taller sponges for years, after the "spongeless" bits became impossible to find, but never thought about shaping it so extensively! I'm gonna try that, too!

Yess I drew on a dry sponge that was flattend and not yet been wet with a sharpie it took me a couple
of times to get it right. also there is a little rectangle piece of sponge that is separate that goes down into the water and is flush and the "Y" sponge sets on top of that and transfers water wonderfully.

Now, why didn't I think of that!

It is 6 years later & the photos are gone. :-( Any chance NewOldStyle is still an active member & can repost Photos?

One trick I learned from the initial post was shaping the sponge llike a large letter "T". I have used that shape for several years now and it's especially helpful in classes. It does keep the spray down quite a bit. It also delivers more water to the bit.
Yes, I just cut down regular sponges. - Tod

I found that by strapping a terry cloth to the grinding surface and keeping saturated with water makes it difficult to move the glass but reduces shelling....
