Posted 14 May 20134 projects in 5 days, Pres?!?!?! You must be some sort of miracle worker. How did you get them dry so quickly? I would love to hear what your other 3 projects were.
Posted 12 May 2013Great idea with a lot of possibilities. Just wondering- this is with wet clay, so if you are doing it with kids do you limit the slab/goblet size so the whole thing doesn't collapse on them- I can just see some kids making a really skinny stem and the whole thing being top heavy.

Posted 10 Apr 2013I like that idea too. IN general this is my first post and this is my favorite topic too. I like children when the play with clay using their creativity. It is important that the pots should be food safety as this add more attraction in an interior of the house and also using as crockery. I will test your idea and will like to ask more about such ideas.
Sorry everyone. I just realized that somehow this topic is posted twice in this forum (I must have accidentally pressed enter twice) If a moderator could please combine the two, I think everyone would benefit from reading both of them together. Thanks
Posted 11 Mar 2013For yucks I looked at the Amaco Teacher's Choice and Teacher's Pallate glaze series MDSDs. Pretty minimal documents in my opinion. (It is important to note that the completion of MSDSs is up to the company, and I am told by Monona Rossol that basically no one enforces that the content be all that accurate.)
The Amaco MSDS sheet lists the color possibilities........ but it seems that the MDSD is for only the base glaze........ the things (likely at least cobalt compounds) that produce a color like "Midnight Blue" do not show in the CAS listings.
And of course the "technicality assumption" here is that the glaze is looked at SOLELY in the WET form........ otherwise a product containing microcrystalline silica (clays and flint are CAS indicated components) cannot be said to be non-carcinogenic.
Also note the "no guarantees" on the accuracy comment at the bottom of one of them.
I'll say here again that I think K-12 teachers should be looking at the following three data sheets available from ACTS:
Selecting Children's Art Materials (6 pages)
Teaching Art & Theater Safely (8 pages)
Understanding the MSDS (4 pages)
OK John, I'm reading you loud and clear. I will see if I can get a hold of the data sheets you are recommending, but in the meantime what do you recommend I use with the kids if they are making projects to be used with food?
