  1. Favorite Glaze Recipes

    about - Troy Bungart's Flaky Lime Green C6 oxidation If you mention a glaze as being good ,please post the formula so others may try it and see if it is good for them. tia
  2. could you tell me more about this spray unit. i don't understand the statement that it doesn't need an air compressor. how does it get the air for the spraying. and also if i do decide toget the tcp global spray guns what is the air compressor that is recommended to go with it? <Harbor Freight not only makes cheap guns (which is a good idea for the reason nigich22 gave), but they make a great all-purpose sprayer that doesn't need a compressor for $120.> thanks for the help eleanor a.
  3. What spray nozzle size do you like

    could someone tell me what air compressor goes with this tcp system. i would love to see recommendations and hope to buy a compressor that does not break the bank.....
  4. Epoxies, Adhesives, and Glues

    i agree about east valley epoxy. i have even mixed small amounts of stain into the mix so as to adjust the color of the epoxy to the surrounding glazed area. great stuff.
  5. yeah, i have a bluebird 440 and find it a devil to clean. any suggestions would be gladly received. i had to stop potting for over two months due to a hip replacement with a loooong recovery. even tho i wadded plastic in the hopper and covered the extruding area, i have a hard block in there. will nothing but a good amount of water do the trick. and while i have people's attention and would like to know if i can put commercial paper clay into the blue bird to reclaim and /or extrude. thanks for all your help
  6. Pottery Videos

    i think that is qa great idea as i would love to be able to rent CM videos. i wish that CM would do something about it in order to make it affordable and more available to the general pottery artists. eleanor a
  7. Studio Floor Covering

    how do these soft tiles clean. i now have scrap vinyl flooring which cleans up very well, but i am interested in the soft tiles. can one brush them with a wet mop or vacuum them with a wet dry vac. hope to get some more info thanks
  8. i had two l&l and thought i loved them until i got my coneart2327. cone art kilns are easy to repair. those l&l element holders were a hard to work with especially if your element melts in the holder. it seems that is what mine did very often and so i had to dig out the holder and thus break into the brick. also i do my own electrical repair and the coneart control panel is easy to get into and service. now i am comparing a fairly new coneart to two very old l&ls, both of which have gone to the great beyond. and if i had to do it agani i would still do a coneart. also my coneart has a floor element and that helps to even out temperatures. if you want any more opinions and info from me just email me and i will be willing to talk to you about my personal choice

  10. i have been melting glass with my porcelain for many years thru trial ad error i learned not to use bottles and other discarded pieces of glass. they all have different coeff. of expansion. i now buy glass "frit" which is finely crushed glass from bullseye or some other glass supplier. i am firing my pots at ^6 now, but had been doing them ^8. i sprinkle the frit into the depression of a knob or onto a tile with a large depression and fire to my glaze temp. i have finally figured out how much glass frit to use . too much will cause massive cracks. also i tend to mix some colors such as green blue grey and white. the red and orange colors and others of that family burn out. i am adding a photo of a randy red casserole with a mix of blue and green glass in the knob eleanor
