I think some pottery suppliers sell kits for student potters. You should also ask a supplier if they have a wholesale account application. That's all I got. Best wishes.

Welcome to the forum. I hope you find answers and friendships here. And share your experiences, good and bad with clay. No one is perfect, but we are all perfectly will to keep trying and learning. 


As to your question; I do not have enough experience working with porcelain. So I'm out.


But be patient, I know you will get some help, soon. 


Also, check out CAD video archives. There is a whole lot of good help there as well.


Best wishes and tons of success. 

In Topic: Tell Me How To Brush Glaze

06 March 2017 - 12:27 PM

I wet the pot first with a floppy brush. I also use the brush glazenerd is recommending. Then if the glaze is drying to fast, I dip my brush in water and brush it on just before adding more glaze. After I finish my 2 to 3 coats (depend on the glaze look I want) I go over the glaze with another round of water to smooth out the glaze. You might also find a video in CAD archive. Best wishes.

Make them. Your family will have a piece of you for the future generations in the work you do.


I think Mea is right about how much time you will spend learning and making your molds. If you have lots of time, go for it, but if the wife is waiting, throw em, so she don't throw you out, LOL JK. 


I don't have any good read, except what the tribe is saying here.


I am going to try Chris's method. It sound like a quicker way a than making mold.


And do not forget that you have to store the molds when not in use. 


Best wishes Joseph.
