  1. Hump and Slump Molds

    I'll take that into thought. The issue with the plaster was I was unable to get things un-stuck even at leather hard (would then dry to bone dry and crack). Then again I was using hardware store plaster as I couldn't really budget in pottery plaster.
  2. Hump and Slump Molds

    Hey everyone. I was looking into making some molds to make slab work with. I was wondering if anyone has heard of using concrete to make the molds from? Ive used plaster in the past and have had some goods results and some not so good results. I think concrete could work as it's absorbent and durable. Love to hear some thoughts.
  3. Cream Glaze Recipe

    Thanks for the responses. I used a little iron oxide while the rutile is on the way. I can live with it.

    Will do. Testing testing testing
  5. Cream Glaze Recipe

    Any ideas about the kind of rutile? I was looking for some and came across Rutile Light and Rutile Dark not sure what to choose.

    Sometimes I blow air into the peep hole and it clears the atmosphere for a few seconds. You have to know exactly what you're looking for though!
  7. Cream Glaze Recipe

    Hi Everyone. I'm trying to make a glaze that's white but on the warm cream side. I already have a good recipe I like that makes a solid white without any kind of oxides (tin) that is a little too sterile... I'm firing to hot ^5- cool ^6. Any options on making it creamier like adding a little Iron oxide? I'm afraid it would make it green like I've seen some Iron oxide glazes go. I have added granular rutile to this before and it was nice just not what I was looking for. Any input would be greatly appreciated.
