  1. The data is from the Highwater Clay specification on their Little Loafers...at cone 6....11% shrinkage...1.87 absorption. I'm not trying to get overly technical, just trying to figure out how big to make something so it will be the size I want after its fired. Have a few tiny mugs in my collection. thanks for the help!
  2. Okay, a newbie question - when a clay body is listed as having 11% shrinkage, does it shrink 11% in the bisque AND the cone 6 firing or is that the total shrinkage after both firings? Is absorption rate important? Thanks!
  3. I bought an inexpensive meat scale at Bass Pro for around $20. It wouldn't work for measuring for glaze mixing but its fine for lumps of clay, and has a removable tray on the top that can be washed.
  4. Can't wait to try the hacksaw blade . Thanks so much for the advice!
  5. That never occurred to me to cut up a rib to scrape with. Thank you for the advice!
  6. I am just beginning to try carving porcelain. I am waiting until its leather hard, but when carving out larger areas, the surface gets very lumpy and uneven. Seems like I just make it worse when I try to smooth it out. I love to carve but this is frustrating me. I am using a variety of tiny loop tools. Thanks
