First off... thanks to everyone who has been helping me with all these naked raku questions I have been posting.
Okay, so a few days ago we did our first naked raku firing....
My results posed these questions so far
1) On pots that I used white terra sig I noticed that they turned more of a gray and black instead of a white and black? Anyone have any suggestions on why this is? My thoughts were maybe because instead of using porcelain clay I used stoneware? Or perhaps I put to much newspaper in the trashcan when reducing?
2) I also did some pots with red terra sig and we fired one of them. Afterwards when I was cleaning it off, it completely wiped off the black crackle lines, basically just leaving me with the original pot of red terra sig. What could have caused this? Again this pot was stoneware, but I also fired this piece to cone 04 instead of 09 unlike the others. Or could it have something to do with the color? Thoughts? B/c if possible I would like to try firing it again if it could work.
