In Topic: Adding Stains To Terra Sigililata

Yesterday, 07:28 PM

There is really no difference between raw colouring oxides and purchased colours besides that they have different mixes of extra stuff. Colours are all achieved in the same way so the hazards still apply to their products.


This is the most simple ball mill I have seen, always wanted to make one but it has not happened yet.

Is the sodium silicate making this problem worse? If I understand it right it makes particles repel each other. I would think with the fine clay it would suspend the oxides better but does the silicate stop this allowing the hard panning. 


Never used sig so not sure on how you are meant to apply it and if the silicate is needed.

This is the transparent they use at my old college, pretty sure it is a good all rounder oxidation/reduction but never done too much work with it using underglaze. Cone10



In Topic: Qotw: Is The Cleaning Fairy Still Available On Etsy?

Concrete floors eat through mops, I find a quick spray of water with a hose across the floor and then brush it all into a puddle works for me. Shovel the big bits then a quick mop over the floor to get the rest. Have to make sure nothing is on the floor that can't get slightly damp.


Where can I find the cleaning fairy on etsy? I could do with one of them.

In Topic: Clear Glaze For Iron Oxide Stain

I have to agree with Matthew there is not enough red iron oxide. The iron speckles are making it through the glaze without disappearing so I think the amount you are using is being taken in by the glaze.
