To Bisque Or Not To Bisque?

14 October 2016 - 07:17 PM

I have repaired a small crack  with paper clay.  Do I re-bisque before glazing or can I go straight ahead and glaze it?  Any help appreciated.  Lin

Terra Sigillata Does It Get Old?

Does terra sig lose its effectiveness after a period of time?  I was told not to use some terra sig made about a year ago, that it wasn't any good any more.  Lin

Thickness Of Shino Glazes

28 April 2016 - 06:46 PM

I'm going to be doing a soda firing next week and a wood firing next month.  I have made up some glazes and flashing slips for these firings.  I know that the flashing slips should be very thin.  I am wondering if the Shino glazes should be applied thinner than normal glazes.

Thanks for your help

Would those of you who have used it please give your opinions on Patch-a-tach?  I have a piece that I'm pleased with except that 1 foot did not stay attached after bisquing..  I've tried spooze and paper clay which didn't work.  Any opinions would be appreciated.  Lin

Banta/burgundy Clay

07 April 2016 - 07:49 PM

I want to make a glaze which calls for banta clay which is no longer available.  I understand that the substitute is burgundy clay.  I can't find out much about that except lots of references to wine!  My pottery supplier does not have it in their catalogue.  Is there a substitute for burgundy?

Thanks for your help again.
