Put Test Tiles In Oven To Speed Drying?
Posted 09 July 2014 - 02:24 PM
I made some glaze test tiles last night, and I'd like to glaze them tonight. Think I can put them in the oven to speed up their drying? Low heat? Maybe 200F?

So you're not going to bisque fire them first? Holding at 200 will dry them just fine. Moving air also speeds up drying, so sitting them outside in the sun and wind will dry them fairly quickly, too.

As Neil said, moving air does wonders. A fan blowing across clay will dry it in a jiffy. In my classroom, during the winter, I put wares on the heated air vent, and they dry in no time.
