I am looking for a recipe that can handle thermal shock. The finished product when done that I am making is heated with a blow torch. Blow torches can reach temperatures of around 2500 degrees F. The temperature I am looking to heat the product is around 400 degrees, but a lot of users over heat the product and it cracks. The biggest name in the game uses a formula similar to what is used for hip repair. I believe it is heavy on calcined alumina, and they have problems with them breaking. These pieces should be strong enough to be heated several times a day. Does anyone have any ideas of what may work well? My kiln only likes going up to cone 6, and I am looking for a slip recipe. Thanks for any help!
I have a small kiln and a deadline and would like to single fire. I am using anasazi cone 5 clay with extra iron: http://nmclay.com/Pr...e5withExtraIron and firing to cone 6. I am using coyote cone 6 glaze. Does anyone have any tips. I will be firing a decal on afterwards. Thanks and sorry for taking over the forum at the moment.
So I'm making plate trophies for an event. Due to my lack of work with decals, I want to write each event name on the back. There are 23 different events, and I dont have the means to print out 2 of every one if I mess up. Any suggestions? Thanks!
I 3d printed this object out, and am trying to make 2 a piece mold for it, but the plaster keeps sticking on the inside. The inside angle is a little over 3 degrees. I tried using oil to make it slippery, and even made a plaster mix with a higher water ratio than normal. Thanks.
