#41156 Not Food Safe Glazes

if it is intended to be a planter it must have a hole in the bottom, that will for sure prevent anyone to use it for cereal or so.

#32400 Firing at Cone 5

Posted by Pompots on 07 April 2013 - 03:37 AM

I've always had good luck with Rhenium. It's good up to cone 53.

Where can you buy Rehnium? I look for it, but couldn't find any retail.

#32288 Nichrome Wire

Posted by Pompots on 05 April 2013 - 12:45 PM

I doubt that wire in your photo will bend.
For years I use a similar size (3mm dia) for glazing my spoons to cone 6.
It is the replacement wire for the Dawson kiln sitter available at most suppliers.

Thanks John, yeah, your sitter is fine, the only difference with mine is the wire is like 6" long the egg is hollow, the kiln is 925F now. will be able to see the result at night. Will keep you all posted.

#32008 Making colored slip

I also use Karen B's approach. using the same body clay to make your slip makes a best match, not that the other wont work, but this is the perfect combo.
