  1. Arrggh - we fire to about 1270C to 1336C, depending on the kiln. Wonder what it would do at those temps?
  2. See! Another great idea! BTW, that bottom pot is really lovely. Did you just make up a strontium/ water solution and a copper/ water solution?
  3. Tried that once... putrid green, never again!
  4. Thanks Babs - that was kind of my last resort as I'm a bit neurotic about wasting anything, but I appreciate the advice!
  5. I'm not sure I want to know how you figured that one out, lol! But I'll give it a try, thank you!
  6. So, I have a big pail of white powder, marked "Strontium Carb?" Lovely. Does anyone know any tests I can run to confirm or refute the lable? TIA!
  7. Excellent information, thank you! I suspected it had something to do with too much water (the context was me learning about porcelain) but didn't know if there was something else missing. People speak of it like you've just beaten the clay to death. Thank you again!
  8. Is clay fatigue really something that happens? I admit that I don't understand - or is this another one of those long-and-dearly-held myths?
  9. So, it really is just "cents" saved? I do spend a lot of time at the studio mostly being a presence, so the time factor isn't quite as big of a deal.
  10. I know I'm coming late to the party but .... I inherited a bunch of Velvets and my studio folks got addicted to them - now finding that it takes between $22- $46 dollars (for the reds, of course) for a pint .... but I imagine using Min's recipe, 40% Mason stain will add up pretty quickly, as well. *sigh* .... the prices in this industry can be daunting at times.
  11. Interesting. Thanks for your response, gentlemen!
