  1. Sounds like this would be akin to making slip from dried clay flakes. Thanks.
  2. I use cone 06 glazes from small (4 oz) jars. The glaze tends to dry out and when I try to thin them with water some are so "gummy" that they are almost impossible to thin. Any suggestions

      Norm35, try posting this question as a new thread in the Clay and Glaze section. More people will see it there, so there's a better chance you'll receive good answers.

      norm,  Kim Kirchman did a workshop last spring showing how to use the tiny bottled things as flat,  dry pats of color in a large    plastic palette.    she puts the entire bottle out in a deep depression in the plastic and allows it to dry.  when she wants to use a color, a simple spray bottle of water softens the pat of color. she lets it dry out again.  the brand names of what she uses are amaco velvet underglaze and stroke and coat glazes.  i am not familiar with what you are describing but bet it would work the same way.  

       

      look for the photos i posted then.

  4. I would like to press sand onto the surface to cone 06 clay before bisque firing. Can I create a sand-like surface this way?
  5. Thank you for all of this advice. I am looking at a Skutt KM818. I have a 40 amp 240 volt outlet ready to go and it sounds like working with at least cone 5 or 6 would be worthwhile over low-fire.
  6. I have enough power for a high temp kiln, but I am not sure which is the best clay to work with, the low- or mid-fire. In the past, I have only worked with high- or low-fire. I don't know that much about mid-fire.
  7. I have heard about a ceramics show in January of 2013, but I cannot find information about it.
  8. I am planning to purchase an electric kiln, but have never used a kiln myself. Which is better for a home kiln, low fire or medium (cone 5)?
