Topics I've Started

1. Thinning Glazes. 2. Deliberate Creating Of Pinholes

07 September 2014 - 02:31 PM

1. When I use Coyote glazes in a sprayer, many of them plug the gun filter very quickly. As far as I understand, the glazes are sold for brushing on. How do you suggest to thin them for 1. air spraying; 2. dipping?

 

2. How can I deliberately create pinholes effect in Cone 5 commercial (Coyote) glazes/ electric kiln?

Pinholled shinos are of a particular interest, but I'd like to work with others as well.

 

Thank you.

Defective Amaco Wax Resist?

20 July 2014 - 04:08 PM

I just opened a new jar of Amaco wax resist. I bought it a few months ago and kept indoors.

 

I mixed it well, and its appearance is normal. However, when I brush it on, it creates large particles of (I assume) wax on top of the film. After application, it looks like an old paint that has a lot of dry fragments inside.

 

Again, there are no fragments inside the liquid. They're created under the brush while I'm applying wax resist.

 

Did anybody have the same problem? Is there any way to fix the liquid, or I'll need to buy a new one? Microwaving followed by mixing maybe? Or perhaps adding water?


How This Surface Was Created

06 July 2014 - 10:23 PM

This is from the beautiful '500 cups' album by Lark Crafts.

 

Any idea how the surface of the cups was created? I mean the macro features: ridges/strips.

 

Carving (that's how it looks to me)? A material impregnated with slip and placed on the surface? Some other way?

 

Thank you.
