  2. ^6 for functional work. Low fire for experimenting with alternative firings. I am moving my soluble salts to ^6 in the near future with a glaze. Meanwhile, using a small amount of earthenware for a pit firing coming up in may with friends. Marcia
  3. Another note, while tapping the plaster you can use a spray bottle of diluted alcohol t break the surface tension of air bubbles as it is setting up. keep tapping until you don't have anymore bubbles surfacing. Marcia
