  1. I'm sure you all know this off the top of your heads, but I'm doing some calculations of batch sizes, costs, etc. Please fill in blanks for this newbie: What are quantity batches in relation to cups, or pail sizes? ie. 3,000 gram batch is 2 gal pail or gallons? 5,000 gram batch/half a 5 gal pail, 10,000, 12,000 and so on. I tried to add my worksheet that calcs all the chemical qty's for different batch sizes for your review/comments but the system won't let me.
  2. Ok so everyone talks about "insight". What is reason for knowing all the details of a glaze? What in its calc tells you it may be a problem? Does one have to know chemistry to understand too much of this or too little of that? Help.
  3. Amy, so sorry for your loss. God bless and keep you and your family.
  4. Please forgive me if this offends anyone. I would like to use some of my late husband's cremains in Glazing special pots for me and our grown sons. Has anyone ever done it? A recipe to share? C5 OX, thank you
  5. High bridge pottery, thanks for your videos. Enjoyed seeing your work. Cute critters and lovely glazes. Do you make a lot of your own glazes? Love the different greens with contrasted beiges.
  6. Thanks all. I watched hsin-churn lin on YouTube. That's how he glazes bowls. His pieces are porcelein so maybe they're thin..
  7. If do a total dip glazing inside and out at same time, can that be a problem? I've heard should glaze outside first, let dry overnight before glazing inside. Good policy? What can happen if dip all at once? Crawling? Cracking? Thanks in advance.
  8. Thanks grype..I guess I just want to understand what in the seger tells me something is "off". I suppose I'll figure it out once I start mixing glazes. I'll let y'all know for sure how it goes. Will be interesting. 😄
  9. Wow, thanks dick white for lengthy explanation! That could be the problem for sure. Next load I'll make sure tip shelf wares are in line with could for max heat. Th much. 😄
  10. All, thanks for resource. Actually, I haven't made a glaze yet but in my readings it refers to the seger, which I've checked out online, but all those formulas and numbers are Greek to me. I'll do some reading and studying on insight and see if it gets thru this hard head. Th =)
  11. Jbaymore, actually, I was referring to the crackling you write about. I don't have any silicate yet but read pancake syrup have the same effect. Thanks for info. I might try it to see what it does compared to the real thing. Pres, thanks for correcting. Ciuldnt find how to do it. Tjr, good tip to know on repairs. Keeping studio notes on all your tips for future. Ty
  12. Ok, here's a question for you techies. In entering a failed glaze test into the seger calc. It breaks down each chemical. I've read people can adjust the glaze using these calculations. How? How do I know what to adjust? I've heard it said you don't have to be a chemist to make glazes. Not sure that's true. What is the balance? where I can go to figure out how to balance glazes using the formulas? I hope this question makes sense. Ty
  13. Had anyone ever used pancake syrup for crackling on pots? Of so, does it work?
