Thank you guys.




Have you tried the zinc-free glaze over iron oxide? I found that several clear glazes I used kills iron oxide or Amaco Velvet terracotta color underglaze (that, I presume, contains iron oxide).

Tube lining is the term for these fine line. I use a sawed off ear syringe with a hypodermic needle



Do you apply it to bisque or greenware? Is the surface flat or you make a groove prior to underglaze application?

Any suggestions on a Cone 5-6 transparent glaze that wouldn't destroy the colors?


Thank you.

..would such an addition in my situation be overkill?

IMHO, it would. Just consider how many potters never used one. :)


Certainly, it will have a positive impact: especially, on more even heat distribution throughout the chamber. So if you have a problem with uneven firing, by all means, try it. Otherwise, I doubt that you'll notice any real difference. But this is just my humble opinion.

No need for the extra holes in the collection cup at all.  Make them in a rigid part of the pipeline connecting the collector and your fan. The openings can be easily made adjustable through the use of a hose clamp or a similar device partially covering the holes.


I'd, probably, make the holes closer to the collector just to keep the rest of the line cooler and somewhat less prone to corrosion.
