#119141 Pre Heat Greenware To Dry Out Days Before Firing

I always candle for a few hours no matter how dry things seem and I'm never had a piece explode.




#112806 Found This App On Reddit And Thought It Might Be Useful

But don't take my word for it - I've yet to mix my first glaze. Just wondering if anyone has used this app or even heard of it. Just copy/pasting here:

 

https://play.google....ontroller&hl=en

 

Here is the overview of what the app can do:

  • Add all your ingredients and their price to an ingredient list. The price information will be used to calculate the cost of each of your glazes, both in general, and for each specific batch you make.

  • From your ingredients list, you can build your ceramic glaze recipes. Tell the app a few weight/volume measurements about your glaze, and it will calculate the specific gravity.

  • Share recipes with a single click.

  • with specific gravity calculated, you will be able to accurately make batches of your glazes by volume (mL, oz, or gallons), by dry weight (grams), or by limiting ingredient (just give the weight of any and all ingredients you think might be limiting ingredients, and it'll calculate how much glaze you can make).

  • once you make a batch, save a record of it's size and cost for future reference.

  • You can also calculate both line and triaxial blend tests with as many tiles as you want really easily. Add labels to each tile so that you can later use the tile search function to find all the details of that specific tile just by typing in its label.

  • If you like the way a glaze tile looks, you can generate the exact recipe for that tile with a single click, and add it to your glaze list. This means if you wanted to, you could blend any of your current recipes together in a glaze test, and when you find something you like, it's really easy to just combine everything into one simple recipe.

  • Sync all of your data easily so that you can access the information on your computer or save it as a backup. Your recipes and glaze tests aren't stuck on the app forever, basically.

I'm tempted to take a few sandwich bags of clay to shows so when someone comments how 'easy' ceramics are I can simply hand them a bag and say have at it then.
