Bcisk, both came from Highwater The white about 3 years ago.
I'm wondering what changes it will make to my glazes .
Mark, you obvioudly find the white more desirable , and I appreciate your offer to help.

Good source of dense rolls of 3/8" thick foam, discount flooring stores. They use great foam under laminated flooring strips. I got an enourmous role at Ollies that will last me years for $20

In Topic: Inconsistent Clay?

Sorry, but the last boxes I got of Highwater clay not only had contaminants in them, but is so snotty wet that I can't  run it between the canvasses of the slab roller.

I have a pug mill that takes care of the too dry clay but too wet is a real time killer.

In Topic: Any Thoughts On How To Improve My % In A Good Gallery?

Pug and Mark , I make lots of small works and at craft shows they sell well and I have a hefty % of the sales made. It is this gallery that stumps me. I see the $$$ coming in and it stumps me that I don't get much of it.

In Topic: Standard 266

Thanks guys. I use several clays, depending on what I'm after. They are all good to a hot 6 or beyond. I use Highwater RedStone alot and am looking to use the 266 to darken it some. I can't get Standard easily , but can get the Highwater I have used 266 about 30 % mixed with Redstone . Good look and maybe that will get me past the possible blosting.
