  2. Hi, is it possible to mix an underglaze with coloured slips and then brush onto green ware? I haven't the colour I need, but if I could do this it would solve the problem. Thanks, Julia

  6. My poor kiln is in a bad way and not reaching temperature In order to check the elements first, Im going to fire it up until they are orange to see if any aren't working. Does anyone have any idea what temperature I need to fire to in order to check them, or is there a better way to check them? Thanks, Julia

    checking kiln elements

    Thanks for replies, i think we have a multi meter somewhere so will try that rather than risk frazzling my eyebrows, not a good look!

    stencilling

    Hi , Im doing a lot of stencilling onto clay using hand cut stencils from newspaper. However even though I wait until dry to remove they are still 'leaking' under the stencil and so not getting a nice crisp line. I spray the newspaper first lightly with water to make it stick better. Any help or suggestions appreciated Julia

  11. Hi Larry, interesting must try this since I have a brick ready to fall in. I have tried shoving ceramic blanket into the cracks before but found that after about two firings it became hardened and brittle and was falling out again, so hopefully your suggestion will work, thanks, Julia
  12. Hi thanks no haven't heard of clay boss, I presume that in the U.S, not sure if they would deliver to Ireland. btw, sorry to butt in on your thread, MichaelP !
  13. Have you taken a look at the clay boss, it sells around the net new, delivered, for $550ish and works pretty well.
  14. Hi, speaking of stand up wheels, one has recently come up for sale near me and I don't know weather to go for it since I've only ever used a electric sit down one. This one is a kick wheel. Any advice welcome , I've been looking for a wheel for ages and would prefer an electric sit down but might be waiting a long time.

    pugmill

    Hi, I invested in a second hand pugmill and have just gotten around to using it. Question is do people usually dry out the reclaimed clay a bit first ? Because I spent hours putting it through over and over, and now I feel a bit foolish because it occurred to me that it was probably a bit wet to put through. It had been in a bucket immersed in water for a good while. I've spread it out now onto canvas and brought it inside the house to dry a bit. Can anyone tell me how wet/dry it should before I try again? Thanks 😞

    pugmill

    It never even occurred to me that bone dry clay could be put through, would love to hear from others too as to the best way. Thanks for your reply
  22. Hi, I've making these ceramic flowers by slab rolling and hand building the center and hollow underpart. I need to make quite a few of them and think slip casting might be an option, trouble is I dont know what way to make a mold of the flower ie what way to place it in the mold, just cant get my head around it. Any help appreciated.
