If you take material out of the maked bag they cam in by all means use a sharpie or waterproof marker to write on the container.
I have seen tons of folks tubs with no idea whats inside as the label fell off long ago-taped or not.
I have found the orginal bag in most cases is the best container as it says whats inside.
one last tip if you insist on containers with labels-put a label on the inside so its always in there after the outer one is long gone-I have often put a paper lablel inside an unmarked bag while i was marking the outside of bag-then no matter what I know what the bag has in it.
I thought you just wrote the name on the door of each barn.
Looks like I might have to read the manual as I couldn't find the self timer just flicking through the menus. I am going to get round to installing the software on my computer so I can shoot from there with the cable going to the camera.
Should I be shooting in 300dpi ? My camera is shooting in 72dpi (or ppi as it says in the metadata) I have the standard lens 18-55mm.
Check out *drive mode* for the self timer. Single shot / high speed continuous /low speed continuous / self 10 sec / self 2 sec.
I have no idea how many dpi I use, I just choose the largest file under "Quality"
Just to add: I have no trouble with joins coming apart in firing but I've seen it happen several times to others in my class - before you actually make the join the slip must still have a wet shine - it's no use making a long join and taking so long to apply the slip that it's dried before joining - if it has, apply more slip, (subsequent coats will take longer to dry, giving you a little more time) it must look wet before you join.
How do I mix small quantities of glaze? Everywhere I look the speak of 5 gallon buckets! To test the dozen glazes I have, I would like to make small batches of about 250 ml each. What ratio of water to dry glaze do I use?
I often mix small quantities when testing new glazes, usually 100 grams dry weight, to this I will add 90 grams of water, I can't remember that amount ever being too much, sometimes I've used up to 150 grams of water, it depends on the ingredients, but it's easier to add more than to take it out.
Where/how do you dry your pots? How far away is your kiln?
There's quite a lot of shelf space dotted around but I'd need to take a pic from the side to show them.
the kiln is in the top photo in the rear on the right. Not sure, but I think that is a wheel with a splash pan next to it in the center.I see pots drying on the left in the lower photo. It is raining on the windows.looks like quite a few projects happening as well.
Yes, my kiln is there, close to the wheel , and there's another one, (my old one) under the table with the pots on.
I've usually got something going on.
I'll be working on making some improved versions (plenty of room for it) of these next.
