In Topic: Cones Do You Bisque The Packs

Yesterday, 05:26 PM

When I ws firing reduction I used clay cone packs with 09,04, 5,6,7 cones. I made a spoon to catch the puddle from the 09 and 04 as i took it up tp ^6.
I usually made them well in advance and poked many holes in the clay. No problems

In Topic: Cone 6 Porcelain Body For Throwing

I use frost at cone 6. It is translucent. I sometimes do shellac layered resist carving which really looks good with the translucensy. I picked up 1000 pounds in Byersville, Ohio when I was driving back to Montana.
I like throwing with it.

I only know "Museum Wax" that comes in a small jar
. If your sculpture is really large maybe clear silicon caulk will work. I know sculptors who use that.

I think it is good to be inspired by Masters. Exact copying is unethical, but aspiring to emulate feelings and forms is how you learn.
