Cone 6 Slip ?

05 August 2013 - 01:58 PM

I would love to get the sandy speckled look of a cone 6 clay in my slip casting.  is there a good receipe for a speckled buff slip for cone 6 firing out there that costs less than buying the bland stuff at my ceramics store?

Thank you!


Repairing Cracked Bisque

01 July 2013 - 02:37 PM

I just did my first bisque firing. Everything but one item came out great. one cup came out with a hairline crack in the bottom corner, from under and up the side , about a quarter inch on both edges and is all the way through to the inside. Is there a way I repair the hairline crack in bisque or it the cup a total loss?

I am inheriting my grandmother's Cress FX23P kiln w/ a kiln sitter. Has any one ever used this model or have some experiences with this kiln?

drawer / cabinet pulls

I was asked to make a friend some drawer pulls and cabinet handles. How do I embed the machine screws into the piece so the screw doesn't crack the handle as it dries?

MELTING CLAY CASTING

12 April 2013 - 12:48 PM

I am new to ceramics. I have been teaching myself how to create and cast and glaze. So I am researching different methods of casting my mugs. I saw a special effects artist cast clay from a crockpot and laddle it into a latex or silicone mold he took from a life casting. Would the cast clay that's been melted down and cast this way be good for making mugs?
I am carving my mugs and then I want to make detailed molds, silicone or latex would be optimal for detail. I am looking for lots of different methods to learn in my new hobby.
Thank you
