This has been a gold mine thread.

 

Thanks all

Thanks for leads to multi nozzle slip  trailers. I am going to build one soon.

 

On mocha diffusion... I am still experimenting a bit with it. I found that if I do it in my spray booth with a vaporizer pumping steam in to increase the humidity, the surface of the glaze stays damp much longer and I can get much bigger diffusions.

 

I am in the process of throwing 30 simple 10 inch bowls to test glaze application techniques. I am sure that most of them will end up in the trash barrel, but that's the nature of experiments

 

Pottery has too many threads to chase

Can you direct me to a video or the like on "feather combing". I assume it is what it sounds like, but could be some details to learn.

Pretty amazing video. He has only done this a few thousand times.

 

I cannot find much like this searching for "colonial trailing pottery decorating techniques". Would there be some other name for it? I will try making up a multi spout funnel to see if that works.

 

Can you trade pots for gold crowns?

I also do a little bit of photography. I'm looking for a hot, fresh steaming cow pile to get a good close up picture of. Then I want to jazz it up with Photoshop and post it on the web for artistic critique. Can anyone suggest a good place to post it to make sure that those fluent in artsy babble will flex their skills on this masterpiece?
