  1. Hi, My understanding of gum arabic is it helps with the application of glazes when brushing them on - is that correct? My glazes to date have all been good but I find that when they dry they turn quite powdery, which compared to some of the commercial glazes, is quite significant. So before a firing I have to be really cautious about how I handle them so as to not leave spots where I've removed the glaze with my hands. Will adding gum arabic help with this? Another issue that I've found is that when brushing on the glazes in layers, some of the 'base' layers underneath are removed at the same time, so the final fired vessel looks quite patchy. This also seems to be less of an issue compared with some of the commercial glazes. Again, as far as I can tell from other forums, this seems to resolve the issue. One last thing - Does anyone know what the ratio of gum arabic is to water when mixing it with raw materials? Thanks in advance for any advice! Thanks, Carl
  2. Hello, Does anyone have any tips or suggestions for the best way to remove a sculpture that has become stuck to a clay bodied base. The base was sacrificial and intended to stop any surplus glaze from getting onto the kiln shelf. It worked but I'm now faced with the predicament of removing it from something else without damaging the sculpture. Images attached in case I'm being unclear. Thanks in advance for any advice! Carl
  3. This FAQ thread will slowly over time be populated with links to past threads that address questions or subjects that repeatedly come up in the Technical forum section. It will be a locked thread, so you will not be able to post directly into it. The number one topic list was easy to pick..... you can see from the number of threads on this subject. I hope this is useful to you all. ...........john ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ 1.)
