#112506 Hollow Die Extruder. Clay Not "healing"

Problem solved.  Just had to move up the bar rather than screwing it all the way down to the die!


#105205 Greenware Lid Stuck

Next time try a torn strip of newspaper between the pot and lid as it dries...and as you are testing the fit. You can take the lid off by the paper without danger of pulling off the knob! 

#105085 Simple Wadding For Supporting Pots In Electric Kiln Glaze Firing

Posted by Ginny C on 11 April 2016 - 04:06 PM

Success, but actually didn't use any wadding.  I discovered that the little vases fit on top of my 1 inch shelf stilts. After glazing each I glued them each to one stilt.  A few didn't stick but it didn't matter after all. It was easy to set the stilt where I wanted it and just set the vase on top. None fell over. I will now try to attach some photos. One of them ready to go into the kiln and two after the firing. My husband epoxied them to the base and I used them for a special breakfast for friends this morning.

Hmm. Is there a way to rotate a vertical photo??



#49092 How Do You "open Up"

Posted by Ginny C on 01 January 2014 - 11:31 AM

Celia!  Are you really brutish to those poor souls?


And, Wyndham, can you explain what this means?  "On larger forms I ball a fist cover with left hand ..."


I'm working on core body strength, so I challenge myself to step into my "undercrackers" and jeans while standing on one foot at a time. Slightly dangerous, at the point where one leg is trapped, so if I'm found unconscious on the bathroom floor that will probably be why!
