Help With Art Glass Tiles

Craft Filter: (this question is from my sister-in-law) "Any suggestions for mounting Art Glass (Fused) Tiles? Sizes are 8 in by 11 in and 3 in by 3 in.

At first I thought it might be paint...

I was in an office today where a window had been converted into a whiteboard by installing a translucent white film on the outside of the glass. Does anyone know what to ask for to get something like this? Bonus points if you can point to a supplier in Western Australia.

Can anyone figure out how to clean this glass?

I installed a clear glass shower enclosure in November 2005. After showering, I use Tilex Fresh Shower on the glass. Now, after nearly 20 months, the glass has something that looks like "build-up" (see picture) that I cannot get rid of. I've used Windex and all its equivalents, white vinegar, Tilex Tub and Tile cleaner, The Works, Kaboom, CLR, lime remover, and even bleach on a small section. I also used a razor blade thinking it might be able to be scraped off but there does not seem to be build up on the surface; it is smooth to the touch. Any idea how I can clean this so that the glass is clear again?

I've got nothing against infernos just not in the house

Would very much appreciate any advice on building a Lehr. My understanding of it is that it's pretty much a Kiln but with three sections. (Please correct if I'm off track) One section is very hot and contains contains a crucible with molten glass, another is to use while working with the glass to maintain temperature ect. and a third for very slow cooling. Any ideas, hypothetical and/or possibly related suggestions just as welcome. It will need to be rental-friendly, as in relocateable but apart from that consider all things to be possible.
