  1. I made one for my son who was killed 2 years ago. It's not your usual urn. He always lived in not so good apartments, so I made him a castle with things that he enjoyed painted on it, and his picture on top. When it comes time to bury him (if I ever get to that point) my husband will make a wooden box to put the urn in. I found comfort in it, but I don't think I would make one for anyone else.
  2. It looks really cool when you put the palladium over other glazes. I love the effect. But, on it's own, it's not turning out like it should. This one is palladium over textured amber brown This is palladium over blue rutile
  3. Mine didn't turn out good. I put it on a test piece with other PC glazes. I put it on vertically and flat, both were dark. The vertically side ran on my shelf. I did 3 coats.
  4. I just painted the Palladium on a test bowl by itself and with some other PC color schemes. Will let you know how it turns out after firing.
  5. Underglazes are good for detail work. I paint my detail work on greenware than fire to bisque 04. That way when I put my glaze on, it won't pull the underglaze off.
  6. I'm so glad this was posted. That glaze is on my list when I go to the pottery store. Post pics !! I really want to see what this looks like.
  7. So happy for you. Hope the kiln won't be too pricey to fix.
  8. My kiln is in our garage. So it depends on the season. Right now, being so cold out, I wait til it gets down to 100* than open it and unload it. In the summer when it's really hot out there, I'll prop the lid and pull out the peepholes around 300*.
  9. Also, if you want the glaze look for the inside, you can glaze the top part down an inch or so inside.
  10. Oh, I love that idea. And yes, I'm with grype, I don't like saying (or typing) old lady ... lol
  11. If your planting succulents, I would leave the inside unglazed. They like being on the dry side. Glazed would hold moisture. I've never had a problem with root systems on my unglazed pots. I have a cactus wall on my fence in the summer, lots of cactus and succulents all in pots not glazed in side.
  12. I'm in zone 5. I store all my planters in the shed in the winter. I've had them crack if left out.
  13. I go to Habitat for Humanity and buy tiles to do murals. The paint will stick if you get matt finished tiles.
