Topics I've Started
Posted 13 May 2013im trying to make a shaving bowl. glazed on the inside and an outside with a sandy texture.
is there any kind of grog i can buy and just roll a wet bowl in it so it sticks, then fire? and will it be waterproof, or should i use a matte glaze?
Posted 4 Apr 2013ive been trying for months to figure this out.
ive already wasted enough money on decal paper that doesnt work.
would anyone be willing to sell me one or two pieces of fire on decal paper?
i have both a inkjet and a laser printer.
i would like the decal to fire black, as i am doing lettering on coffee mugs.
my understanding is that the laser printer will fire sepia, and the inkjet will fire true colors?
but most inkjet printed decals, you cant fire?
Posted 23 Mar 2013im having problems finding a good transparent base glaze.
every time i try a recipe ive found, it doesnt come out transparent.
ive used oxides, and stains and i cant seem to get it to break.
by transparent, i mean it gets darker in the recesses and lighter at the peaks.
(im hoping im using the right word)
im firing to 06.
is there something i can add to a glaze to make it more transparent?
or remove something?
ive tried several recipes.
Posted 23 Mar 2013my studio is in my garage, and i live in ohio and it gets cold.
some of the glazes that ive made have changing results.
could this be from the cold?
seems as though at first, the glazes work fine.
i always make sure they are thoroughly mixed and strained before i use them.
now im getting different results.
sometimes they bubble, sometimes they come out matte instead of glossy.
should i be storing these inside where its a bit warmer?
Posted 3 Jan 2013i have an offer to do a bathroom sink bowl for a client.
is there anything i need to know or think about as I'm making said bowl?
I'm probably going to have to use a plaster mold because i can't seem to throw that big, and i would be using laguna em100 clay. (maybe a different clay would be better?)
if i make it the same way i make everything else, I'm afraid I'm missing something important.
this is out of my range of experience, but I'm sure i can pull it off.
i just don't want it breaking or falling apart on them someday for some weird reason!!
