Pugmill As Extruder - Will It Work?

21 January 2015 - 10:49 PM

I have been considering purchasing one of these extruder dies that are made to fit on my Shimpo Pugmill. But when I look at the picture, I can't imagine that the extrusions won't meld together as soon as they pass through.

 

Does anyone have any experience with this?

Thanks!

Karen

 


Crocus Martis Yellow? Grog Brains.

15 August 2014 - 02:21 PM

I must have grog for brains. I was mixing up 5 large batches of glaze yesterday.

Despite careful planning, I miscalculated and was short the amount of Yellow Ocher I needed for one,

which is to be a translucent green glaze, which I discovered about 11pm.

I was despairing, because schedules, deadlines, you know. I came across a bag of Crocus Martis Yellow.

It looked exactly the same! Yes, I used it to finish the glaze.

Now, as I am sieving, I notice some redness in the strainer.

PLEASE TELL ME IT IS NOT LIKE RED IRON OXIDE! Please tell me it is yellow when fired.

Just tell me the truth. Am I screwed?

Thank you,

Karen
