I'm trying to glaze a slip cast porcelain egg (Cone 5) and don't want the pin marks of the stilts. I came up with a simple solution for my problem (see attached picture), in the picture the egg is being held by a wooden chop stick (for illustration purposes) but the idea is to use Nichrome wire, my question is:
Would Nichrome wire support the egg without bending on the firing? This wire is very thick, can't bend it with one hand, don't know the gauge thought. The egg is not to heavy, like 4 ounces unglazed and it might get up to 6 ounces with the glaze.
Thanks in advance for your input and knowledge.
