  1. all this rusty talk made me go check the back of my skutt 1027. To my pleasant surprise, it has virtually NO RUST. bought it in 1996 and it lived in Florida 3 blocks off a bay for nearly 10 yrs! It is now in Georgia where summer humidity is crazy high; in an un airconditiioned and unheated (except when in use) metal building. I have not purposefully done anything to keep in such good shape.


  2.  I'm not that concerned about the cost of the tin, all though cheeper is good. I really wanted to simplify the number of ingredients I have to stock. I have about 10 glazes that I think are ok, but i'm not thrilled with any of them.

     

    Here's the recipe....and a link to the before mentioned article  https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0CB0QFjAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fceramicartsdaily.org%2Fceramic-glaze-recipes%2Fmid-range-glaze-recipes%2Frecoloring-a-classic-trying-new-colorants-in-a-classic-pottery-glaze-recipe-can-lead-to-some-great-results%2F&ei=HEXzU5wPwv3JBJCbgYgM&usg=AFQjCNEZNT3qjexGXdziCkSuqu6jOExqtw&sig2=yEKovpVkiYo6de684dAiZg

     

    FALLS CREEK SHINO (CONE6)

     

    GB               18.7%

    Lith Carb.     6.5%

    Soda Feld     9.4%

    Alberta Slip  56.1%

    Silica            9.3%

     

    Zircopax       9.4%

    Tin Ox          4.7%


  3. I see the Falls Creek Shino recipe used in a recent CAD article uses both zercopax 9.4% and tin oxide 4.7%.

    I thought these are both opacifiers ...do I need both?

    I would like to mix up a test batch; but don't have tin ox in hand. How do you think it will turn out if I skip the tin ox? 

     


  4. Mark , thanks for the link to TJR thread. TJR thanks for your input, let me know how they turn out. While the shelf idea may be the most expedient and work well; This guy has a pizzaria and wants to sell them to his customers with his and my logos on them. Like a rewards program...buy a stone with your first pizza and bring it in to get pizzas at a discount for life of pizza stone. I like the micacious clay idea as I could make them on wheel and have a very slight lip.

    What do you think would be best to put my name(logo) and his on with? Any experience with numbred series items?
