    Cherry got a reaction from Bill Kielb in RBGs   
    Bill's final sentence is what I'm aiming for.  I realize the differences that various clays and firings have on the end result and I'm not looking for a perfect replication of a color.  I too, have spent years on glaze testing and color theory.  I'm not trying to invalidate the years of work that potters have done, just move my own in a different direction.  
    I've made a chart of the underglazes I have. I also have a lot of colored pencils. I match the nearest pencil I have to the underglaze, then color in the printed design to see how the colors work together. If they don't, I start over. Colored pencils don't erase well.  I'm was hoping to ease the process of designing using an image manipulation program.  I've learned that Microsoft's 3D Paint will identify the RBGs from my chart, but won't save a palette of more than 18 colors. Which is more than enough. I'm also, finally, taking the time to watch GIMP tutorials.

    RBG refers to the proportion of red, blue and green that are combined to create a color. They're used mainly on computer monitors and the web, but like the effects of different clays on the same glaze, differently calibrated monitors can give different hues, depending on how they are calibrated. It still gives a level of consistency in the appearance of an image, regardless of  the maker of your monitor or your program.

    I was wrong. It was relays we replaced.  And it shut off at slow speed too.

    Cherry got a reaction from Chilly in Cotton fibers for paper clay   
    I learned about paper clay from Jerry in about 2003 but stopped using insulation because I was finding black specks from it in my clay. And they didn't burn out and the discoloration seeped into the glaze. I've been using cotton for years but I just get it at Michael's.  I store small amounts in the freezer and that seems to work as well as the fresh made stuff.

    I suggest a thinner second dip layer-maybe dip it when the other layer is wet so not as much soaks in or thin the second layer glaze. The idea is a thinner coat.
