  1. whilst researching more there are these two Prometheus one below. They are a good hobby size and price. Both reach 1000c. Im hesitant and there is a lot if emphasis on metal clay on their description. But maybe they are good for small ceramics also? any advice on these please :-) Prometheus Mini Kiln Pro1-prg Programmable With Timer Prometheus Mini Kiln Pro-1 With Digital Controller 50 are interested the
  2. WOW thanks guys. lots to think about. I think less stressing about £1000's and accepting the second hand route and abit of TLC on the kiln is the best route by the looks of it :-)
  3. Hi, i live in the Oxfordshire, UK. Yeah, you're right its a real mix. some websites selling brand new for cheaper (so you think whats the catch) eg http://www.technicalsupermarket.com/component/option,com_virtuemart/page,shop.browse/category_id,425/Itemid,4/ or second hands for what seem like a lot of money. just need a little counter top one, one shelf is all i need. Though it was achievable but i'd rather not spend £1000 plus. Also i'd like it to be able to reach a nice high temp, but again that means ££££
  4. Hi Tom Thanks. Yeah just a little hobby one for jewellery making would be ideal, i was thinking a second hand one, as long as it still reaches a decent temperature mind! I have some pretty handy people around me so not too worried about having to fix/alter if needs be. Just concerned about it being a money pit and picking a good 2nd hand one. thanks again Hi Tom Thanks.

  5. You're very right there. my brain is thoroughly scrambled now, you would recommend playing around with a second hand one then? thank you
  6. Hi, i use a lot of air dry and fimo clay. I use it in my handmade silicon moulds but really struggle keeping the back of the pieces flat. Obviously i'm pushing the clay into the moulds and then de-moulding. Where im pushing the clay in i am trying to flatten as mush as possible but its not a reliable technique. Any tips/tool that can help? many thanks
  7. Hi, I am keen to start using ceramics in my jewellery making process. I would be looking to eventually purchase a small kiln for my studio. Only i dont have £1000's to spend. I would like to spend £5-600 and get the best make and model for this price. I want to be able to fire clay, porcelain would be a dream but i understand that requires a very high firing temp = more £. Can anyone please suggest/recommend a quality kiln for my price range, suitable for clay firing and glazing many thanks in advance
