The only supplier I found who did not mind mixing colored clay was Seattle Clay Supply. That was five years ago though ... I am pretty sure I got the name right.

Do you mean ... when is the excess moisture gone? Hold up a mirror and if it fogs, don't ramp up.

>I had no idea though that old bisque pieces would have issues related to sitting around for too long. Not meaning to hijack the thread, how long is too long?

I don't know ... I have seen it happen and have heard many explanations ... e.g. ...They pick up moisture from the atmosphere ... but I honestly don't know how long is too long.
Anyone else have a clue?

Welcome to the forum. :D

 

Here's a great answer ... look at the top green menu bar of this page and click on 'Ceramic Arts Daily'.

Then click on 'Education' from the menu on the left.

You will see a link on that page to firing a kiln as well as one to glazes  ... lots of videos and good, solid information to get you started.

Have FUN!

TA DA !!!!! :D :P :lol:

 

I did not break it during moving nor did I have to dismantle the kiln.

It needs a week or so more to dry ... then we shall see.
