  1. Thank you ..... For your input and pic Almost how I did it And yes no problems 


  2. Audrey porcelain

    On bone dry before bisque firing “green” side of sponge wipe down all pieces with water and vinegar that was what my ( one lesson ) taught me Answer was so that the glaze would stick better ( as I said I’m new to this ) I’ve only glazed once so don’t really know the difference (???) At what stage would you use this technique? ( just out of interest ) Going back to porcelain bisque so I can stack obviously taking into account weights etc ( it’s just I’ve read a lot about porcelain cracking .... so just want to avoid a whole kiln load )

    thou@oldlady....Thank u for advice..... Yes it is a “whole new world “ and to be honest find very “ daunting” but exciting and challenging at the same time!!!( Trying ) to be self taught I think makes it even more over whelming But consider it very good therapy too Thank goodness for social media as u said and to ceramics daily and to anyone who might be able to help Thankyou ( off to make some slip ) Seem to have some difficulty posting here but will give it another try Have made a few porcelain bowls etc that are now ready to be bisque fired Have used both porcelain slip with stain and just watered down stain( messier) My question now is do I stack kiln as I would earthenware ( ie pieces ontop of each other ) Porcelain seems much more fragile I was also taught( one lesson) to wipe all bowls off with water& vinegar using the rough side of a sponge Surely this does not apply on porcelain (??)Thankyou ...Nicky
