  1. I'm in Europe and can't find them at all, help!! I even called Aardvark Clay, my sorely missed supplier in the greater Los Angeles CA area, and even they don't have them! I've also contacted Scarva and Potterycrafts in the UK, nada either. It's for this recipe (published on Digitalfire.com): Cone 04 UltraClear Glossy Base Code: G3879 Modification Date: 2019-07-19 14:54:26 Material Amount Percent Fusion Frit F-524 850.0 82.9% Fusion Frit F-69 40.0 3.9% EPK 90.0 8.8% Silica 45.0 4.4% 1025.00 Any ideas? Thanks in advance.
  2. I see. However, Tony Hansen, the creator of this body, its firing schedule and glazes, says the following (my underlining): ”The only solution was a switch to New Zealand Kaolin (which contains only 0.15% iron) and VeeGum. The result is dramatically better”. That’s why I was asking about where to buy these two materials in Europe. Has anyone had any success substituting them with Grolleg and macaloid as suggested by glazenerd?
  3. I’m sorry, other than his suggestion of substituting with Grolleg and macaloid I don’t see any reference to where to source NZK and Veegum T in Europe. Am I missing something?
  4. Does anyone know where to buy NZ kaolin and Veegum T in Europe? I recently moved to Spain from Los Angeles, where everything was so easy to find, and my searches for these two materials come up with nothing.... HELP!! TIA
  5. Hi Mark, Since my dipping technique really sucks, I want to start spraying my glazes (never tried it) and I'm really disoriented as to what compressor to get. I've read every thread about it here and yours interested me because I can't have a noisy compressor and it sounds like yours is the ticket - nice and quiet. The only thing I wonder about is the CFM/psi specs. That Senco 993808 you recommend, is it powerful enough to spray pieces the size of a bathroom sink nice and evenly, say? (the end result should look like dipping). I gather I need to use a HVLP spray gun for that (as opposed to an airbrush? If that's the case, I'm buying it NOW!! Please let me know when you get a chance (the sooner the SO much better!! ) Thanks so much!
  6. Hi all, I'm just in love with this look and wonder how it's achieved: with underglaze over a white glaze? dipping a powdered (undiluted) mason stain over the wet white glaze? with drops of water on underglaze applied over wet white glaze? a cobalt oxide wash? Anyone?? Thanks!
  7. This is what I've been wanting to try for EVER!! Thanks so much for posting your experience and results. I've had a gallon of Laguna Porcelain Slip sitting in my studio for a few years now (three? maybe even four?) and I'd like to know if I can still use it, and if so, whether I need to do anything to it (like add deflocculant, or whatever). What I also want to do is coat some sheets of fiberglass mat ( http://www.homedepot.com/p/3M-Bondo-8-sq-ft-Fiberglass-Mat-20129/202077814?keyword=fiberglass+mat) that I will be forming with, instead of the cotton yarn. I'm all ears to any words of wisdom. Thanks in advance!
  8. Hi all, Does anyone know if it would be at all possible to fill into cracks with glass? Think Kintsugi,, sort of... I would like to try filling into tension cracks in some "failed" cone 6 pieces with glass. Anybody?
  9. I was afraid that would be the answer... Well, I did it. Let's see how it fires when it does! Thank you guys so much for all the suggestions!
  10. Thank you! And by the way, I'm actually having the exact same problem as Chris above: crack at a joint (and probably even for the same reason!). I'm posting a picture to better illustrate it. The thickness of the wall and bottom is 1/2". I'm not too clear on how to go about applying the mixture to it, since it's not a case of joining two separate pieces. How much to moisten and how, with an eyedropper right over the crack, for instance? And then push the mixture into the crack? I don't want to make it worse... it would be great to salvage this piece.
  11. Hi Steve, Would you be so kind to share a successful firing schedule for your saturation gold glaze? I will be using it on stoneware (Laguna B-Mix 5). And I will first dip it into a glossy white, is that what you would suggest before brushing the saturation gold on? Thanks so much.
  12. Thanks, guys! This formula is called "gold pigment" (it's supposed to be used as a glaze but technically speaking it's considered a pigment) and I want the most metallic gold look possible. If you have any recipes that would do this, I'm all ears!! I would love to get a successful firing schedule for it... anybody has any idea? It's for cone 5.
  13. Marcia, you're saying to just add toilet paper to the spooze recipe from TJR?
