Posted 2 Jun 2013My poor kiln is in a bad way and not reaching temperature
In order to check the elements first, Im going to fire it up until they are orange to see if any aren't working.
Does anyone have any idea what temperature I need to fire to in order to check them, or is there a better way to check them?
Posted 2 May 2013Hi , Im doing a lot of stencilling onto clay using hand cut stencils from newspaper. However even though I wait until dry to remove they are still 'leaking' under the stencil and so not getting a nice crisp line. I spray the newspaper first lightly with water to make it stick better.
Any help or suggestions appreciated
Posted 18 Mar 2013Hi,
does anyone know if it is ok to put a transparent food safe glaze over unsafe coloured slips to make bowls food safe? thanks
Posted 4 Feb 2013Hi, I invested in a second hand pugmill and have just gotten around to using it. Question is do people
usually dry out the reclaimed clay a bit first ? Because I spent hours putting it through over and over, and now I feel
a bit foolish because it occurred to me that it was probably a bit wet to put through. It had been in a bucket immersed in
water for a good while. I've spread it out now onto canvas and brought it inside the house to dry a bit. Can anyone tell me how wet/dry it
should before I try again? Thanks 😞
Posted 13 Dec 2012Hi,
I've making these ceramic flowers by slab rolling and hand building the center and hollow underpart.
I need to make quite a few of them and think slip casting might be an option, trouble is I dont know what way
to make a mold of the flower ie what way to place it in the mold, just cant get my head around it. Any help appreciated.
