Glass slumping questions

Very new here and have my very first kiln ordered. Original idea for a kiln was to glaze ceramic tiles after applying glaze over images which I engrave thru the factory glaze and in doing research I see so many additional possibilities with the kiln I ordered.

My question concerning slumping is whether I could add stain or oxides to the inside of bottles before firing them to add some interest to clear bottles?

I was unable to find anyone locally who would/could fire tiles for me and now as I explore I think I am glad.

All ideas and suggestions greatly appreciated. I see potential in fusing glass, however not knowing the coe of the various bottles decided should look at adding oxides, etc to the bottle interior.

Re: Glass slumping questions

HI, I haven't visited wetcanvas in awhile until now, and saw your post from January. Did you have any luck with oxides or stain added to your bottles before slumping? it sounds like a good idea. I too am new to kiln work and have been slumping and fusing bottles, good for experimenting without wasting expensive glass tho colour choice is limited!
