Topics I've Started


06 June 2013 - 08:38 PM

I have bisqued some small items made using a Porcelain to the temp. advised on clay pack - Porcelain 1080c. and am now wondering if I HAVE to glaze them, or can I leave them bisqued?

Firing Beads and Pendants

07 May 2013 - 06:55 PM

I've recently made porcelain and earthenware pendants. Have bisque fired them no problem. My dilemma is I want to clear glaze both sides and can't find
out how. I have heard you can hang them up in the kiln, can anyone tell me how and what I should use. I have made a hole in them, but did see
some small hearts made with a wire inserted in the top to form a loop. What wire would that be? I'd hate to waste all the time and patience
I've put in to these and not be able to finish them.

Thanks Annie

Just commenced trying out porcelain, and was wondering what to glaze bisque fired porcelain to get a satin finish. Thanks Annie

repairing joins

09 February 2013 - 07:28 PM

Is there any way I can repair joins that have shrunk during the bisque firing. They are not large, but enough to mar the appearance of the pot. Also they are on the inside.

I was planning to clear glaze the pots, so is there a way that I can glaze, fire, then repair the joins?

Can someone advise when is the best stage of drying to carve porcelain? I have just started throwing and handbuilding with porcelain and not sure whether it is leather hard or dry.

Thanks Annie
