    Milk Bath?

    I’m probably a bit behind, but I was looking into this technique recently and decided to give it a try today on my low fire white clay body and dark clay body , bisqued then brushed with whole milk. And put it in the kiln at 550 F for 55 min after temp is reached.The result is just beautiful and I can’t wait to start using it on my work. As for water tight properties, I tested a drop of water and surprisingly the water did not get absorbed !!

    Porcelain and Ceramic Jewelry

    Hello , I’m new to this forum and I’m not sure if I would get a reply since this was posted years ago. But thought i’d try anyway. I’m trying to glaze some bracelets all over , and I hope I’m ready this right. So you use alumina hydrate under the glazed rim of the bracelet to prevent it from sticking? Thank you Asmaa

    Calcined alumina

    Hello, I’m new here and quite a beginner in pottery, and have experimented with different techniques. I only do hand building for now and love it so far. I’m working on a series of rings and bracelets and would like to be ables to glaze them all over . And use some luster. I have heard about using calcined alumina in a diy clay rest for rings , but I’m not sure here to start or how much to use. Does anyone has any knowledge about this? also, I work with earthenware, and was wondering at which temperature a cone 05 glaze starts melting. During luster firing, do glazed pots have to be stilted to prevent them from sticking to kiln shelf? thank you ! Asmaa
