Neil and oldlady are right. Commercially available pots/saucers are treated so they aren't as dusty as plain bisque ware or as porous.

Question on sieving - should I run the reconstituted glaze through 80 or 100 mesh? I have some commercial glazes that have dried up. When should Epsom salts be added, and how much??

You all have lovely sponge holders.

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.
