  1. Good advice. I'll let you know how I get on. Thanks again.
  2. Thank you. Yes, I thought I'd give it a try anyway but just thought I'd ask as I'm guessing I'm not the first person to want to try this.
  3. Hello. I have a few high-fired glazed pieces that I'm unhappy about. Is it possible to re-glaze using earthenware glazes and then re-fire at earthenware temperatures? The reason for doing this is simply so I don't have to fire at such a high temperature again (trying to reduce time and cost) So just to clarify: would a low-fire glaze work on top of a previously fired high-fired glaze? Thank you.
  4. I would like to re-glaze the inside of some smoke-fired pieces so they can be used for food/drink. To what temperature can I fire without losing the smokey detail? Thank you in advance.
  5. Hi all, I'm wanting to make a low-fire matt or satin transparent glaze. Have any of you got a simple recipe? Thank you in advance.
  6. Hi all, Is it normal for the plug to get hot? My kiln is located in a shed and I have it plugged into an outdoor socket on the outside of my house. Obviously it's a closed and watertight socket so I'm guessing that doesn't help with the heat; but I've also sometimes left it open (on dry days) and it still gets hot - is this normal or should I be worried? Thanks in advance.
  7. Thank you for your reply, Sputty. Much appreciated. The litter I was referring to is this one: https://www.catsan.co.uk/Products/clumping-litter It's 100% clay. What do you think? I can but try - and if need be, I could mix it with some existing clay to see what'll happen.
  8. Hi all, I have a question that has probably never been asked before: is clay-based cat litter usable as content for casting slip? I ask this because it's cheaper and I can buy it from a local store rather than order my usual clay online and have to pay an exorbitant delivery fee. I like to experiment so was going to make something small to see what would happen but I also thought I'd put the question out there in case anyone had actually tried this. Thanks in advance!
  9. Wow! So much useful information. Thank you!
  10. This community is wonderful. Thank you all for your help!
