    Terra sig density

    i am curious to know the results...

    Terra sig density

    It is fascinating, for sure! I am firing at 03 and the terra sig is beautiful, verry good results! Don't know for other firing...

    Marcia: Yes, your answer illuminates my understanding! The text from Lamaridiana too! Tks for that! I just fired test tiles with my white terra sig at 1.22 and my red terra sig at 1.02. Everything seems OK, no peeling , seems to cover well, beautiful finish, beautiful colors. So specific gravity is not such a big problem for me, I think ... Also, I observed that oxides mix better with terra sig than Masson stains. Does anyone have a solution for that? Thank you so much again!

    No one to answer my big question?

    Wow, tks Marcia you are so generous! We finally come to the big question ... I have consult a lot of videos and recipes on the web and I am still confused! How come some arrive at very good results without too much precision and with little waiting times while others have a precise technique worthy of a laboratory with times that goes as far as 72 hours with specific gravity mesures? Is there a kind of mysticism around Terra sigillata? Extra-precise not necessary chemistry? Tks again folks for your generosity!

    Tks Marcia, but the one at 122, I have to add water in it?

    Tks for the info!
  9. Hi everybody, I made my two first batch of terra sig, one red and one white. I followed the Kari Raddash instructions from Clayflicks videos. I have two nice product to work with but before using them, I have to verify the density... I learn from another great potter that the target is around 114 gr for 100 ml to get the good density. So, I weithed my sigs with a measuring cylinder and a precise scale and one is 102 gr/100 ml and the other one 120 gr/100 ml. ! is that verry bad? I mean, I can use them like that? It mean that that did something wrong? Solutions? tks

    Matte Wash

    I am trying to make a matte wash with oxide for low firing. I tried a GB wash but it became glossy when firing. Any ideas or recipes ? Just oxide with water ? Gum ?
