If you can, get a copy of "The Schedules" By Graham Stone. Brad Walker has itt usually at the warm glass board. LIFE'S WORK ANALYZING ANNEALING SCHEDULES FOR CASTINGS.

Roseanna recommended hydrated alumina if one was to add it. There's a lot of ways to go after the mold work and Glassnotes IV covers many of them. We got hijacked in our approaching the molds by COVID 19 and haven't been in the studio at all. There are some great videos on the subject on youtube.

I do tend to think the issue many of us would like to solve is reusable molds. That's why I was leaning to the alumina.
