Salvador Dali was a great fan of poop, it is mentioned several times in his biography, so the cow flap idea may not be so far fetched. I read that he painted a painting of human poop ( his I think) and bemoaned the fact that no gallery wanted it. To paraphrase his complaint... " you can paint buckets of blood and pile of gore... but paint one little turd and everyone is offended"


Art is what art is...I guess.

I had luck increasing the length of the chimney on one raku kiln that was not firing hot enough when using a ventui.  I no longer try to fight city hall, and just use a blower. Works fine for a 55 gal barrel kiln with 1 inch Kaowool and  one propane burner.

If you use paper, it might be good to not use any with lots of colored inks. The pigments are mostly organic, but I think that some times there are metal compounds in the ink
