In Topic: Show Us Your Teapots

Funny you should bring this up! I just finished this here teapot not too long ago:

I'm drying it verrrry slooooowly for obvious reasons. :) The spout really does come up over the top of the lid (barely), it just doesn't look like it from this angle.


(This is actually the second time I'm making this teapot. The first time the spout was too short and when it was fired, the lid was fired on the pot accidentally - and not by me!)


In Topic: Suggestions For A Lime Green Glaze?

Thanks, everyone! I had thought about underglaze as an alternative option. Question about the Spectrum Lime - is it transparent or opaque? I'm using a darker clay right now, but will likely switch back to a white or buff when this box is gone.

What I meant is to allow the wax to harden in the leather hard clay form, then remove the form and wash the remaining candle of any remaining clay. This will leave you with an interesting shaped candle. This is certainly not something you would do for production runs of decorative candles.

This might be a good use for Nancy S's (s)crap clay!



Indeed!!! (Thankfully there is not a lot - maybe 3-5 pounds.)

Yeah, um, I just did that "oh, a tiny bit of this mystery clay shouldn't hurt" bonehead mistake. Now I guess I have a few pounds of scrap clay for plaster cottles or bisque hump/slump molds. :wacko:

In Topic: Tons Of Little Bumps/bubbles Showing Up After Glaze Firing

I had this *exact* same issue recently, and I think it might be due to a bit of "mystery clay" (which is likely low-fire, ^04) contaminating my ^6 stuff. Have you been doing any clay mixing lately?
