Hi Stella, I found a very old posting about the vitrified test tiles you coated with milk but I never did see the outcome of these tiles and wondered if you had them available, also I am very inspired to learn more about this process. Is there anything else you can share with me? I am especially curious about this milk bath process and food safety. Do you know if it would be safe to make a mug and use it for hot and cold beverages?
Thanks so much! :-)
Stellaria hasn't been on the forum since March 2015 so I doubt she'll see your question. You could try pm her instead, click on the envelope icon with the word "Message" beside it at the top of this page to try that.
I believe the process Stella was testing was trying to get the fat from the milk to soak into the tiles. I don't think that vitrified tiles would soak up enough fat to give the tile any kind of sheen. Fat can get old and have a spoiled smell to it so I don't think it would work well for functional pots.
