In Topic: Incorporating Metals Into Ceramic Sculpture

I have the video by Jeremy Randall from Ceramics Arts Daily.  He discusses and uses various metals in his ceramic work.  I think there are some excerpts from his video in the archives.

In Topic: Lids To Glaze Buckets Stuck, Help?

Hydraulic fluid comes in 5-gallon buckets with a lid that screws on with a slight twist and are so easy to put on and take off.  Find a business that uses hydraulic fluid and will save the buckets for you, even if you have to purchase them…..they're great for storing glazes! 

In Topic: Making molds from Styrofoam

I don't believe the blue (or pink) insulation foam is porous. In any case, I use Murphy's Soap as a mold release, just wipe the surface of the blue mold and you should be okay

The blue insulation foam has a protective plastic film that would keep it from being porous, but even if it was removed, the foam has a tight smooth surface.  I use it with concrete and have to rough up the surface a bit to get the concrete to adhere to it.

In Topic: Custom Stamp Source?

I had a logo stamp made for custom mugs by my local printer who also made stamps.  I ordered it without the handle and got a flexible stamp I could press onto the mug for about $6.

In Topic: Forum's New Look & My Lost Gallery

ayjay (and everyone),


Thanks for the heads up. All should be working now with the gallery, with minor tweaks along the way. We updated the Gallery plug-in and selected "update avatars" as part of that, though it seems some have not updated. Best suggestion is to define/upload again and see if it sticks.

How, exactly, do we get to Update Avatars?  I went to my gallery, but didn't find anything regarding avatars, updating or otherwise.  Mine disappeared with the change and I only have my profile picture.  The new format is great, and my gallery remained active, but I just can't find the avatar setting.  Thanks.
