Posted 17 Jun 2013Thanks for the dipping suggestions, OC. I will get into trying these glazes again this summer. I mixed several of them after taking a workshop with SH about a year ago. I will make beefier test tiles and have another go. SH says SCM should be 60% of the total glaze thickness, so I was operating off that. My spraying tests worked well, just would like a more efficient way to try lots of combos.
It's good to know others that are working with these glazes, hope we can continue to support each other's efforts. There is a web group about this, but it seems dead and is very difficult to navigate.
John, thanks for the pictures, nice results.
Obviously, Steven Hill knows more about his glazes and techniques than I do, but when SCM is thicker than the glaze over it (in my case often Juicy Fruit) I tend to get a muddy yellowish color. When I reverse it and the SCM is thinner than the glaze or glazes over it, I get better reds and golds. I guess it depends on the glazes, and only tests will determine what works.

I don't know. Do you really want someone finishing off a drink to see a frog or a moth's balls in the bottom of his/her cup?
Posted 17 Jun 2013(3) once a week, starting in July share Jim Beam with wife while watching a moonflower open as the sun goes down.
Why only in July? Does she lose her cool by that time from uneventful summer?
I am not asking why only once a week. Jim Bean would put me in a coma for a week too.
The rest of the time I'm either watching or eating muscadines. Moonflowers are fantastic. All day the bloom is a tight, long cone (sort of like a fat unicorn horn) then when the sun goes down it starts to unfold and if you stare carefully you can even catch it moving a little. It takes about 15 minutes for it to open fully for the bats and moths that are waiting. We can only take that much excitement once a week for about a month.
Posted 16 Jun 2013Mark, you really can. I make whiskey cups with porcelain ice cubes. You keep the porcelain cubes in the freezer and use them like regular ice cubes. It cools your whiskey almost as well as ice cubes and, best of all, it doesn't dilute good whiskey.
Great idea. Do you glaze them?
Diane... No, the porcelain "ice cubes" aren't glazed. I can't put a picture into a post so I have to put them in my profile gallery (and will delete them after a while). Here is a picture of two whiskey cups with cubes: http://ceramicartsda...wimage&img=2705
