Kellykopp: I have used Vince Pitelka's method of making it and it has worked great for me.

Just a question. Does anybody use one of the cheapo hand-held IR thermometers to check for hot-spots?

Purely googling rather than knowledge, but this page from Arnold Howard may be relevant.

Has anybody any idea how fast slip applied to wire should dry, I don't


Usually slip applied to clay articles has some water absorbed by the slightyly dryer

clay, and is allowed to dry on the time-scale of the pot. While casting slip has most

of the water sucked out during the casting, and still takes many hours to dry.


In a not very successful search for slip drying on wire I came across this:


The next stage is to coat the wire armature, either by brushing or pouring, with paperclay slip.

Each coat of slip is dried completely before the next layer is added, a process that can take

several days.

Pieter, interesting. Are you firing in oxidation or reduction?
