Hmm, I see a golf ball and a trip to the hobby store in my future.

Thank you!

Yes, exactly that.

In Topic: Diy Dry Pressed Ceramic Tile?

03 March 2015 - 03:00 PM

I've experimented with dry pressing small items. Inspired by "A Potters Alternative" i made a frame to capture my car floor jack and several molds to press both damp dust and moist slab items.

Damp dust is tricky. I was pressing pyrometric cones so the clay content was low. I think a binder as mentioned would be beneficial.

I have talked to a guy online doing this for tiles. His method for producing moist dust was semi dry greenware run through a hammer mill. That's another possibility to keep in mind.

Please keep us updated.

In Topic: What Causes Glaze/clay 'tide Mark'?

PRankin, definitely finger wiped but the color may be due to the thin layer of glaze left behind in the wiped places. Not necessarily an underglaze but not ruling it out either.

Looks like that clay is not meant to fire to cone 5. Amaco lists its max temperature as cone 3. You'll need a different clay if you want to use that glaze and vice versa.
