Where could I get custom made glass slippers / shoes from in London?
This is a strange request, but I'm looking for a place, somewhere like a Specialist glass merchant or glass maker in Central London who could make me a glass slipper/shoe. Yes, like Cinderella's. It has to be a proper one though where I can specify size/dimensions. It's for a present and would be amazing If I could get this done.
Thanks so much

I'd go for plastic - much safer
Anyway, is that not supposed to be a mistaken translation from the French and should be fur slippers?
How do you remove chemical stains from glass?
I have a clear glass shower door and I sprayed it with a bathroom chemical cleaner and forgot to rinse it off. The chemical has permanently etched itself into the glass. The stains are not hardwater or soap scum. I have tried numerous shower clearners and nothing works. I can't even scratch it off using my finger nail so the stain is embedded in the glass. Any suggestions?
Question answered by Self
the best thing i suggest is to contact a glass company or glass merchant and ask them for a contact number for a specialist glass restoration company, they will be able to bring it back to new within minutes but they do have a minimum chagre, if they cant get it off refuse to pay them untill they do an move on to another company, i have a beach house which stands about 25 meters away from the high tide point so windows were prone to salt water damage i did this as it would have been cheaper then replacing the glass in the windows, not only did they come up like brand new after bein 7 years old but i also got a 10 year warranty

How can I apologize to my friend after I broke his glasses?
A group of friends and I were playing soccer, when I accidentally broke my friend's glasses. I don't have the money to replace them. I feel really bad, what can I do?
Question answered by Patrick of Peel
You sound not only athletic but honest.
Go with one of your parents to the eye glasses store and explain the situation.
Have your parent vouch for your honesty in that you will get or create a job to raise money to pay for the glasses to be repaired or replaced.
Ask the merchant to open an account in YOUR name and you will make weekly payments from money YOU earn to pay for the glasses.
The eye glass merchant will find a way of repairing rather than replacing them.
He or she will give you an amazingly low price due to your honesty.
Then go in with your friend and introduce your friend to the eye glasses person WITHOUT TALKIN MONEY and let them do what has to be done to get his glasses repaired or replaced.
You will certainly be considered one of the most honest kids with tremendous integrity at school.
(And that can't hurt you in the girls department either)
Why is Guernica mentioned in the glass menagerie?
Picasso, like Tenessee Williams, created art that was autobiographical. Study the work that Picasso introduced during the 1930s, the same period of time in which The GLASS MENAGERIE takes place. How was the painting “Guernica” part of Picasso’s life? Why did Williams mention it in THE GLASS MENAGERIE?

Scenes One & Two
Summary: Scene One
Tom Wingfield steps onstage dressed as a merchant sailor and speaks directly to the audience. According to the stage directions, Tom “takes whatever license with dramatic convention is convenient to his purposes.” He explains the social and historical background of the play: the time is the late 1930s, when the American working classes are still reeling from the effects of the Great Depression. The civil war in Spain has just led to a massacre of civilians at Guernica.
The reference to Guernica was just used to convey what was going on in the world at that time and to explain the mood of the people.
How do I glue glass back together?
I have a glass figure that broke and I am wondering what to use to fix it. I tried "fake finger nail glue" with no success. Please help.
Question answered by MIKE G
There is a specialized glue you can get from glass merchants. It needs to be applied in sunlight or under an infra red light to activate the ingredients in it. Very good bond. Invisible when the adhesion takes place.
Find your local glass or glazing shop.

how much would i expect to pay for a pane of safety glass, including installation?
i am about to go into foster caring and need to change the glass in the window in the potential foster child's bedroom, it is roughly about 2metres by 1metre. I would only need the actual glass replaced, not the frame, but would need to pay to have it done as I ca not do it myself. Thanks!
Question answered by John H
I know it may sound stupid Charly but - it depends where you live...
I can get toughend safety glass that size for about £30 - £40 - the thick stuff, not the cheap thin stuff. But, having said that, I am lucky enough to have a supplier close by that does not rip you off.
You best bet is to hunt around local glazing merchants and ask them to quote you for the glass - don't forget also, that the glass you are asking about only has to be fitted by law if it is below a certain height (UK) - which I think, from memory but don't quote me is 800mm from floor level - above that it does not need to be toughend safety glass.
Fitting the glass - now that depends on the frames you have - wooden frames are fairly easy to do - and all that will need replacing is the wooden beading and the correct sealant/putty! That alone shoud set you back no more than about £10 - £12 - fitting the glass would take less than an hour including removal of the old glass.
MOST of the glazing merchants will do it for you but again, you need to play one off against another to get the price down.
Where can I find airtight jars but made with very dark coloured glass?
Very dark green (or "black") or very dark brown coloured. Surely they must exist somewhere, though I cannot find anything online. I have Le Parfait preserving jars which are good airtight jars, but they are transparent. I want to preserve chlorella from any sunlight and keeping it completely airtight. Thanks but I would rather not have alternative suggestions like covering a normal glass jar in something like a dark bag or always keeping it away in a cupboard. Many Thanks.
Crisis? What Crisis?
Question answered by johnzd81
If you are keeping your chlorella as a liquid and not reducing to a paste, I would suggest the lowly beer bottle! You can purchase an inexpensive hand capper and new caps from any home beer making supply.
Alternatively, you can purchase re-sealable beer bottles (brand Grolsch comes to mind) from any party store that sells the brand, usually for the asking and deposit (the merchant is usually more than happy to give you the bottles for the price of the deposit so he doesn't have to handle them, same with regular beer bottles) Just wash well, sterilize and add your chlorella, cap them and you should be good to go!
P.S. Champagne bottles will accept a crown (beer/soda) cap as well so you can bottle larger quantities if you wish.
Can I know where I can get tools or machines for glass working?
How to drill, cut, paste or weld glass?
