In Topic: B-Mix And Me - A Contentious Relationship

24 May 2016 - 03:19 PM

I have never thrown with B mix but I know it's awful to handbuild with, my professor in college made me do a project with it to get me out of my comfort zone.   What a mess,  years later I tried making some tile with it and had almost every tile crack.  I had used the same molds and process for the tiles with a basic throwing clay didn't have one crack.  There are potters who love it, I can't figure out why.  Denice

I use his method to soften bags of clay all of the time.  He will be missed.    Denice

How sad to lose a bright light,  he found out that I was 6 months older than him and use to tease me about it.    Denice

Are you using the crackle glaze on the inside and outside of the cup.  Crackle glaze on the inside of a cup will stain and I don't believe it is food safe.  I understand that using a crackle glaze on the inside and outside can cause stress from the crackle glaze and break the piece.  I haven't done this myself,  maybe you could do a test with your crackle on the outside Zam Celadon on the inside.  I leave the Copper Carbonate out of it and use it as a clear glaze, very reliable.   Denice
