The Color LIne paints can be tricky to fire the first time around. On this piece my reds disappeared. I spoke to Dusten at Bulleye Glass and he said to vent the kiln up to 1100 or 1200 degrees and then open the kiln completly for 15 seconds. That lets out the fumes and replaces air with fresh oxygen which the Reds need to fire properly. I tried that on the second piece that I painted another layer over in certain areas. As you can see the colors did not disappear again in those areas because of the 15 second venting process. Problem solved. Bullseye and their employees are very willing to help you out with your fusing problems. Try emailing or calling them with your problems. They also have a Facebook page for the Color Line Paints.
