The Bailey Setters look amazing! I'm going to have to add those to my wish list. Thank you for posting the link.

I have the Justin Rothshank DVD and highly recommend it. Since I fire cone 6 he suggests starting with the transfer fire at 04 and tweak it up or down from there. I fire my ware bisque 04, glaze 6, transfers 04 and it works every time. If possible I would suggest getting his Dvd as it makes the process super easy to understand and do.

Yes a Cc swiper stuck to your phone. I use PayPal but a lot of people use square, pick the one that seems to be best for you.

I would test. My experience is Bisque 04, glaze ^6, then laser transfer fire 04 once again, I just put mine back through with a load of bisque. I would think firing at the same time as your glaze would cause distortion of the image as the glaze melts and depending on your glaze it will most likely burn entirely away or be so faint as it might as well have.... But testing is in order to see what your combination of materials will do.


In Topic: Amaco Potters Choice Salt Buff Looks Like Ash

I'm actually a fan of Potters Choice Temmoku but then I've never done cone 10 reduction. I like its mottled brown variations on the inside of boxes with a white exterior and transfer image. The dark brown color really compliments the brown transfer. I've tried the Salt Buff and only really like it as a 2nd glaze in combination with Firebrick. I do think Salt Buff only looks decent over a heavily textured surface otherwise to me it just looks like a badly applied glaze with unfortunate runs (this is my opinion only but then I tend to be a bit of a control freak). I am thinking of trying it thinned down a lot and put on thinly as in only 1 solid coat with the 2nd coat being dashed on randomly here and there and see what happens. I've got a whole pint so figure I might as well experiment and see what happens.

My favorite Potters Choice glazes:
#1 Blue Rutile
#2 Tenmoku
#3 Firebrick
#4 Albany Slip
#5 Indigo Float

I REALLY WANT palladium to work but I can't seem to get it to fire without pinholing or running horribly. I'm not sure it's a glaze that likes Little Loafers but it could just be me.
