I agree with Joseph F get a hold of a bag of little Loafers from Highwater Clay. It's wonderful for throwing as well as hand building. It's the only clay I use.

I second the use of cornstarch, it's what I use as I find oil and cooking messy and WD 40 gives me migraines. You will learn as you do this when the opportune time is to impress the clay.

Thank you David. It's kind of scary to be doing this for the first time but need to learn it as I've relied on the preprogrammed slow glaze setting for too long. everyone here that programs their own schedules to get the exact result they want have inspired me to try as well.

A question why would you go to 2018 for ramp 2 instead of 1982? And adding the 5 minute hold here? Is there something that happens to the glaze at this temperature? Just curious and wanting to Learn!

Getting close! I think it's time to run a test load through and see what I get. I'm going to glaze up a bunch of stuff with the glaze I am having issues with and see if this schedule helps. If not at least I will have something to photograph to show what the issue looks like. So far I have been able to grind the little pimples and bumps down, reglaze and refire with good results. A few that failed in the refire I broke up.

The simple answer is yes. The detailed answer is, some of them, but you have to pick your patterns as some won't work. If they are in a rigid support you are limited in use unless you can pull them off so they are flexible. Try some out and you will quickly learn what to look for in those that work.
