this may seem like a silly question, but is there a good way to make irregular bowls that turn out looking nice? all mine look like mistakes! thanks.


Clean Sgraffito Edge

05 March 2014 - 02:36 PM

does anyone have a tip for getting a clean edge when doing sgraffito? i've used every tool in the book, but am still getting a ragged edge. i need to work on bone dry clay (because the piece is large). i'm cutting thru 3 coats of terra sig. thanks for any suggestions.


Flaky Terra Sig

20 February 2014 - 12:13 PM

I've painted 5 coats of terra sig that's been lightly tinted with Spectrum stain onto a greenware porcelain pot. When I checked it this morning, the terra sig was flaking off. I've used this with other clays, and had no problem. I'm wondering if maybe I didn't let each coat dry thoroughly enough before adding the next coat, or could it be that the porcelain clay is too smooth? I'm new to porcelain, so don't know all it's quirks. Thanks for any suggestions.

Spraying Glaze

Can I use the glaze that I brush on (and pour) for spraying? Do I just need to thin it, or do I need a completely different glaze? Thanks
