  1. I tried the sand and I got the worst cracking ever.
  2. I really like glazes such as lalone crawl and binger that tend to crack and peel off like potato chips when applied over other glazes. I have struggled with different ways to get them to stick on vertical surfaces. I think I finally found something that works. I noticed that when the potato chips would peel off they would have a layer of the underlying glaze on their bottom side. This to me meant that the potato chips were sticking but the underlying glaze was not strong enough to resist their pull. I have found that brushing a couple of thick layers of CMC solution over the underlying glaze and letting it dry until it is still just slightly tacky strengthens it. The potato chip glaze applied over it sticks well to the still slightly tacky CMC without pulling up part of the underlying glaze.
  3. Yep that's the one ... thanks I messaged PDwhite to see what he's up to
  4. If I remember correctly, there was a thread on how to do reduction in an electric kiln by introducing a little propane. I thought I was subscribed to it. I haven't heard from it in a long time and I can't find that thread. If I'm not delusional, can someone point me to that discussion. By the way, I discussed this with Skutt technical support. They thought it was a good strategy to build a bomb
  5. I just dug out a quart of paper clay from the back of my refrigerator. I made it a couple of years ago with wood fiber and a few drops of chlorine bleach. There is not one black spot in it. It smells sweet and is perfectly smooth.
  6. Bar's stuff is truly strange. Also being an art welder makes fabrication of gizmos easier.
  7. Thanks for researching that out for me. I looked at some of her other videos and they were so vacuous I didn't pursue it further, though apparently I should have. I was hoping for some more mechanized approach rather than just manually poking holes.I will have to give that some thought since I'm the gizmo guy
  8. Does anyone know how this texture is made? https://wh25pg4ymc-flywheel.netdna-ssl.com/wp-content/uploads/j-tavill05.jpg
  9. Travill's work is very interesting. Do you know how she makes that texture with a lot of little different size holes?
