  1. learning to use underglaze

    Kim, Have you talked to the folks a t Gerogie's. Talk to Christy, she is the person who makes the glaze formulas for Georgies glazes. She is a wealth of information. Tell her what clay and underglazes you are using. Christy has helped me a lot when I have had glazing problems.
  2. Nuka Ash Crackle Cone 6 Glaze

    This is great! What clay body? Is this like real tumbleweed ash that you make? Look forward to seein more test!
  3. How do I convert % to grams in a glaze formula? Is there a online conversion chart where I can just plug in the numbers and voila! Mathematically challenged, Acg
  4. I found mine by checking back on Amazon till I found one for $45 used. Also, do you have inter library loan's in the UK? Your library has it sent to them for you to check out. Good luck
  5. Glaze Sample Website

    Hi, Here is one I found. Try googling "ceramic glaze samples kits" http://www.coyoteclay.com/sample%20sets.html Have fun!
  6. A message from CERF

    Thanks for this Chris, Can this information be put on the main page of CAD so more people could get this information? Annclaire
  7. Hi, A friend and I share a kiln together. She is having problems with warping in the bisque. Clay body - Tacoma Clay Art paper clay firing - ^06 using the Skutt firing schedule Thickness - 1/4/ to 1/2 ins. Tossed and rolled with a rolling pin Design made on drying board Dried to soft leather hard then: either a second sheetrock board is put in top or weights put on the 4 corners At leather hard put in a convection oven. on the oven racks and dried for 12 hr at 170 F Placement in kiln - larger pieces stacked flat on the top shelves, spanned the kiln shelves these had the most warpage smaller pieces stacked leaning against the shelf the smaller pieces stacked flat on the bottom shelf seems to have the least warpage These forums are so great. Thanks for all your help acg
  8. Moroccan Sand glaze ?

    Hi, I have never used the Maroccan Sand, however; I have used several of Laquna's matte glazes and I really like the result. I use a very white porcelain clay body. With to brush-on coats some of the whiteness of the porcelain comes through. I like that effect. I fire at ^6 oxidation. Not a lot of information but it may help you. acg
  9. raw glazing

    Have you seen Steven Hills video? He get fabulous results once firing in ^6 oxidation. He pours the liner and them sprays the outside. I took his workshop and have used his once fire program with a ^6 porcelain paper clay. I only applies (poured) lining glaze inside ( Jon's clear ^6-10) nothing on the outside. It worked really well. My pieces were small and very thin. I was quite surprised at how well the forms held there shape even though the clay was quite softened by the glaze, until it began to dry. Hope this helps
  10. Sodium Silicate has been used a lot in our community studio. ^10 gas-redution, raku fired, ^9 salt-fired, ^6 oxidation. Just match clay body to temp.
  11. I want to say the same as Marcia. I went to a friends studio and he used sodium silicate to make the cracks and he appears to fire in his electric kiln as he would any pot. I have done a couple of pots this way but as of yet have not fired them but I never expected that they would need to be fired any other way that what the clay body type I have dictates.
  12. Ceramic Ball

    The stilts are made for different temp. firing. Make sure you buy the ones that match your firing.
  13. Thanks, all for your input. Any other input is welcome. I'm not sure I am brave enough to try it. Maybe one piece in my small kiln/sitter kiln. Acg
  14. Hi Paperclay guru's, Have any of you had experience once firing your work, probably ^6 oxidation. Are there problems with the glaze on thin bone dry pieces distorting the work? I will be spraying or brushing the glazes. Will the clay absorb as much glaze as when it is bisqued first. Is there any size limitation with once firing? What about pieces blowing up? Is there more or less danger. Thanks for you help! acg
