Posts I've Made
Posted 8 Jan 2013I used wood to level it. Easy and solid.
Posted 18 Oct 2012Throwing that tall is beyond my skillset, but I haven't had a need to do it.
However, one small thing to check is how level your wheel is. I read that on here and found I had placed the wheel on ground that wasn't level. A bit of shimming helped it out and made taller forms easier.
Posted 8 Oct 2012It is silly imagining a potter would steal horsehair since you can spend $20 and get enough horsehair to last you hundreds of pots.
Regarding the use of human hair: you can use it, but the line is going to be much finer. I also use the hair from my black labs....I seem to have copius amounts of it.
Posted 26 Sep 2012I'm a Mac guy and they have very good software to do just what you are looking for.
iMovie is a very good editing software. I suggest you use that. In short order you will be able to create movies that are awesome.
iDVD will allow you to create segments or chapters and burn it onto a disk.
The combo of the two will get you what you want.
Posted 4 Sep 2012I use a white stoneware and have used plenty of Coyote glazes. I love to try to get Ice Blue to work. When it does, its awesome. It has issues with uneven applications. It tends to go dark in those areas.
Gun Metal Green is good, and I found it important to get the firing temp right. For my clay, I fire it to cone 5 with a 15 minute hold. Cone 6 tends to result in it getting dark grey streaks instead of the nice green.
Layering black and Mottled Blue results in cool effects (2 black under, 2 mottled blue over). Even coats are a must.
