1) Insert pieces. Turn on kiln.
2) At around 1200 degrees F, lift the muffle an inch or so to check the glass. Check it every 30 seconds until the glass edges begin to round. Then check every few seconds.
3) Unplug the kiln when the fusing is finished. Lift the muffle a few inches for 15 seconds. This stops the fusing.
4) Lower the muffle and allow to cool to room temperature.
You will find that jewelry is very forgiving.
