    Waterproofing Pit Fired Slab Vases

    use a plastic liner inside of the vessel and you have the problem solved without the use of sealants that may not work over time.

    one option that I do is to use heavier stencils made out of poster board or old clay bags and then cover stencil edges with a layer of slip that matches the clay body before using underglazes, colored slips or glazes. I haven't had any problems with leaking under the stencil. Also the heavier stencil material ensures that I can remove all of it and not get any bits left behind.

    Sodium Silicate For Majic Water?

    I saw a video a few months ago where the potter painted a thin layer of colored slip and then sodium silicate onto a fresh thrown pot (still on the wheel) and then used a torch to only dry the exterior sodium silicate layer. He then expanded the pot from only the inside which created a beautiful crackle pattern on the outside. I am guessing the video was from Ceramics Arts Daily but it may have been YouTube.

    dry/damaged fingernails after working with clay

    Being fair, I have very sensitive skin. I feel like I have tried using every lotion I could get my hands on. My favorite is for faces... Olay Total effects (fragrance free). I runs about $17/1.2fl oz bottle but it is the only thing that actually feels good and gives me a GREAT amount of relief. Hope it helps.

    Studio flooring choices

    If you are going to have a kiln in the space then you will want to make sure you have a concrete floor/tile floor at least in the area where the kiln is sitting. I would check with kiln supplier for exact specs required.
  8. I have used the palladium on a reindeer ornament and totally loved it! I put it on very thick which was both good and bad... it came out looking VERY silver but it dripped a LOT. I would totally do it again but would definitely put a plate under it to catch the extra. It was fired at ^6.
