    It's supplied as black clay so I didn't have to do anything to it. I glaze the interior and fire to maturity to make it food safe.
  2. Thank you for the welcome, Oldlady. I brush my glazes for now till I learn how to spray. I only have the commercial wax resist with no particular brand and I've only ever used it on bisque ware in the past, which worked well.
  3. Thank you Neil. Does the glaze not stick/absorb on the waxed part or is it simply easier to clean off?
  4. I do single firing for stoneware and porcelain with good results but my glazing process is a little clunky --in that I brush my glazes on because I am yet to experiment with spraying. When I'm glazing greenware I simply wipe off (with a damp sponge) any trickle on unwanted spots but this normally reveals rough surface of the clay, especially if there is grog. So can I apply wax resist or equivalent? Or glaze trickles will get absorbed regardless since the clay is still very much porous? Thank you for your help. -Tam

    It's a black clay with 40% grog , according to my German supplier

    First attempt at porcelain. Relieved that the bowl came out okay from single firing; interior glaze only.

    Thank you. According to my supplier it's got 40% grog -- 0.5mm. It was a challenge for me throwing it the first time as I wasn't used to that much grog.

  9. Stamping is so satisfying. Have a lovely Tuesday!

  10. Your music selection makes mine feel a little juvenile -- I normally listen to AC/DC and a whole bunch of other rock music. But lately, I've only been listening to a Portuguese language podcast since I'm trying to learn the language.
  11. Makes total sense Chris, thank you. I've now placed the order for the ST315B and really looking forward to testing my new firing schedules! --Tam
  12. Thank you Neilestrick. I will most definitely opt for the ST315B!
  13. Hi Babs. Both controllers are capable of doing 1-9 segments, their only difference really is the higher end being capable of 2 ramps per segment. This is where I can't seem to find value in inputting ramp 2 when there's always the option of inputting it as another segment as long as I get to the target temp anyway. I suppose it would look like an "organised" program, grouping your ramps and all?
