In Topic: Hot Wax For Bottoms Of Pots?

30 September 2014 - 07:19 PM

I have always used the liquid wax resist.  In a high school classroom, a pot of hot wax, is something I want to avoid.  The only downside, is that it takes a while to fully dry.

Very nice Mark.

 

My favorite is probably the one closest to the camera.

 

When you were discussing the sponge holders, in the other thread, I was picturing more of a small dish type thing, with raise ridges, to let the sponge drain.


In Topic: Brushing Glaze: How Long Between Coats?

I never wait long at all.  I start brushing at one point, and rotate the ware.  By the time I get to where I began, I start the second coat.  I've had no issues with the commercials glazes by doing this.

A sponge keeper is a cylinder with slots on the side for a dish washing sponge. :).

 

 

Which is kind of funny.  We put sponges on holders, so they don't get "dirty" just sitting near the sink.  This is despite the fact, that no matter what we do, the sponge will always be the dirtiest item in the kitchen, and probably even the house.

I'm glad your first show experience was positive overall.

 

I like the green glaze you posted as well.  It has a nice "oxidized" look.

 

And in regards to mugs, I always tell my students, that it is my believe, if a mug can't hold a large can of "Chunky" soup, it isn't nearly big enough.  I like my mugs to be multi-purpose; soups, ramen, cereal, ice cream or just a butt load of caffeinated beverage.
