  1. gluing broken pieces!

    I have two broken pieces that need to be glued and painted by tonight. They are part of my halloween costume as wolverine. It is long skinny claws. Any suggestions?
  2. Imitation: Flattery or a rip off?

    Many artists recreate masters work in order to develop their skills by learning how they did what they did or at least developing a way for themselves to make something similar. When learning a new technique I think it makes perfect sense to at least make something similar and then use that information to use the technique to create your own work.

    Yes especially the one we are using. It's taking forever to reheat!
  8. Metal Enamels

    This is the beginning of my career. Red Earthenware. Spring 2011. At the time I didn't like the idea of glazing because I hadn't tried it yet.

    You can get a small set of screwdrivers that you use in automotive and electrical repair, they are about the same size at the eyeglass repair screwdriver. but more variety in widths of blades. They probably cost between 5 to 10$ for the set we use to find them on the dollar table. Denice Where did you look on harbor freight to find these?
  10. ceramic panels- found, or made?

    I think you're asking if you can bnasically buy a ceramic palette? I really don't know if you can buy them, but I'm almost positive you can. However, if you wanted to make one it wouldn't be difficult at all. After reading your post I've decided Im going to do the same.

    So then the temperature and electric kiln are okay. Its just the reduction that is a problem?
  12. Haselle Copper technique

    Hello I am new to raku firing, and I recently tried to glaze a piece with Hasselle CopperMatte. I found a recipe before I found this site, and it is the same recipe that this site has listed. When I fired it the result was just matt black. The technique we've been using is fire to 1850 then reduce in sawdust. From what I've read since then it seems that it should be fired to 1800 then brought down to a lower temperature before removing from the kiln? ALso, does the reduction technique make a huge difference on the result? For this particular glaze is in absolutely necessary to reduce in a trashcan? Also we use an electric kiln. Does it perhaps need to be gas?
