Business checking account

20 January 2012 - 10:03 PM

Can or should I use my personal checking account instead of a business account? Is it better to have a, doing business as (DBA) or use my own name for business?

Should I add a tax to the price after the sell price or add it into the price? Also, how do I handle taxes for selling online?

Cone 5 pottery

02 January 2012 - 04:44 PM

I was wondering, if I fire a cone 5 clay for cups, mugs, plates, etc. will they be leak free like stoneware? And would a commercial glaze be better than a glaze recipe from a book? I want to make some functional ware but I have nightmares if someone bought a piece from me and it leaked or cracked in an oven.

Self supporting cones

26 November 2011 - 04:11 PM

I bought some Orton self supporting cones so I could see how my kiln is firing. But the box does not give any instructions about where to place the cones and if I have to use kiln wash. I have never used kiln wash because I use commercial glazes that don't run. I tried a Google search, but I couldn't find anything helpful. I bought SSC 4, 5, 6. I fire mid fire in a Duncan 1029N The Pro Plus. I really don't want to use kiln wash. I hope someone can help. Thanks.
