Slip trailing

I am hoping this is a stupid question.
How do you get slip the correct consistency for trailing, and how do you get it into the applicator?Posted Image

renting kiln space

31 October 2012 - 06:49 AM

I hope I am posting this in the right place, I think I am. Anyway...

Someone has asked me to fire her stuff. I have an electric kiln, she just wants it bisced, cone 06, most of her stuff is fairly small, masks about 4x8. How do I figure how much to charge? Is this done by cubic inch?, and if so how much?

This person is my dogs groomer. My other option is to simply barter it out. This is really the way I am leaning. I swapped her a bag of clay for a bath and toenail clip yesterday. She usually charges $25.00 for this service, so that worked out well for me as well as for her since there in no place within the reasonable vicinity to purchase clay.



iron oxide powder

Glazing is my nemesis!

I would like to get the speckled effect. I would like to get some colorant build up in recessed area. I am using white stoneware clay.
I read is a book, you can do an iron oxide wash, apply it to bone dry greenware, let it dry completely, than brush off with a sponge when it is powder dry, and it will do what I am looking for. Unfortunately what happened is the wash also soaked into the flat areas of my piece and it just looks messy. What did I do wrong? Posted Image
