She also provides tried and true firing schedules that have taken several firings to perfect.  Now, on to the oil lamps, 8" circular oil lamps are made (you can easily make square or rectangle forms) with the best circle cutter on the planet.  You will be shocked at how easy it is to cut circles with this tool!  Each oil lamp is made in minutes and the pocket created for the oil reservoir is the perfect size.  Tanya will reveal her source in the handout where she gets the perfect wick and tubing that fits exactly inside the pocket...and they cost about .75 cents each!  Months of trial and error went into this...this really is the perfect class as it is affordable and accessible to all glass fusers of all levels.   You will get a return on your investment of this video with just one oil lamp sale.  Get your supplies now because this is going to be epic.
