  1. I have gotten into the habit of spraying a light spray of water onto my bisqued pieces before glazing. Results =no more pin holes
  2. Mason Stains

    I am requesting information on application and firing of mason stains to bisque paper clay is because I did not want to mix mason stain into unfired clay or slip. I am unable to find information on line regarding firing at 06 cone mixed with clear glaze. I plan to use on an outdoor sculture to create unique shades/ colors not available in underglazes. Different web sites have varying information regarding mixing mason stains with clear glazes. Some state that only non- talc glazes can be used some disagree. Below is a quote from a website selling mason stains. " Mason is one of the leading stain manufacturers in the United States. We carry the complete Mason color line. They give color to glazes, slips and clay bodies. Most Mason stains can be used at any temperature.

  5. a bargain is great however, the elements seem to be on the floor of kiln and bricks are broken at the top edge. Will the top close all the way ? Are you able to turn kiln on ? Does the kiln sitter work ? Replacement parts can be expensive and sometimes hard to find . Some things to look at... i have purchased used kilns without broken bricks or bottoms. The elements can be put back in and held with pins if they are all in working order. Good luck !!
