In Topic: What A Mess

Yesterday, 09:09 AM

DH, this really is a puzzle.  Thank you for sharing all your info with us.  I have only used the Turq matte as an overspray with other colors.  I think I may do a little testing myself.  But like Min said, perhaps it is a bad batch of clay?  I think that happens?  I had a couple of boxes from Aardvark that had rocks in it.  Is it possible to get a different clay and try the same glaze combo? 



In Topic: Amaco Underglazes And Crawling Issue

I use a lot of Amaco ug.  I do use it mostly on bisqueware.   I have not had the crawling issue, but for the work I do, I usually dilute the ug a bit and then blend it with other ug.  Like Min suggested, could your  work have picked up some dust?   Could it be too thick?  As with other products, if you contact Amaco, they might be able to give you some suggestions.  Your pieces are knock out beautiful!  You need to figure this out!!!

This was really crummy Stephen.   If you want the satisfaction of letting them know in person that their actions are inappropriate, then yep, give them a call.  But I have to agree with Diesel and GEP, you would be much better off without them.  I have  participated in a few shows ONCE.  My work did not fit in the venue, or they didn't line up good advertising, or the event simply did not bring in good crowds, ready to shop.  I also have helped organize events.  Much smaller than what you were planning on participating in, but still, as an organizer, I do listen to comments on how to improve.  But your event planners sound rather fly by night!!  I hope you sell well at the next venue!!  Best of luck to you!!



In Topic: Drying Time

I have been leaving my drying pots in a room with a ceiling fan on low.....now that it is cold, I put a little heater in there ......So far, it has been working to do that this fall and now into the winter.  I think the fan moving the air is helping.....it has definitely hastened the drying process.

Brit, I do the same thing that MatthewV does.  Underglaze or colored slip on white bisque then clear over it.  You can draw your lines on your bisque with pencil or mark it off with floral or masking tape......or freehand.  Then apply whatever color you want, then clear over that.
