  1. I just dug out some old wax resist that is dried up. Is there any way to revive it?
  2. I appease the clay gods by getting clay over me and my pigsty studio.
  3. I never put water on the clay. I have developed a set of roller tools that don't need water. It's really nice to be able to pull something 10 inches tall with zero water. It gives you a lot more time to fiddle with the shaping. During the final shaping, I will put a strip of wet glove leather over my fingers. This is far slipperier than my wet fingers. This adds almost no water to the surface of the clay
  4. From the album: Spray Booth

    here is a picture of the el cheapo spray booth set up to download a set of pictures describing showing the construction an the beginning of the article I was going to write http://caer.com/dl/?t=91cb83da7ae0d4926f6f06a6ff89c498 if you have any questions feel free to contact me

  5. thanks that clears up my confusion about the metrics. You seem like an endless wealth of technical information. Have you ever thought about writing a book to compile all of this?

  7. thanks for the useful information on mixing this stuff. However, I'm a little confused about your metrics. "22% gerstley borate, mixed and sieved. To this we add 11.1% mason stain plus 5.6% zircopax " Do I use these numbers as relative proportions of these ingredients?
  8. Norm what ratio of cobalt oxide in Gerstley borate you find works best?
  9. Cone 6, Gas and Electric

  10. I do tig welding but what is electroforming?

  11. Compared to the deep crimson color swash on the Mason site, it looks like there's quite a bit of fading. mason colors Are there any better alternatives or techniques?
  12. About a year ago, I got a old but good condition Bluebird pugmill off of craigslist for 100 bucks. it's not de-airing but upgrading it may be one of my next projects. They do show up from time to time. The only downside I found to using this small pug mill is it you've got to be ready to throw 100 pounds or more clay it to make it worth fiddling with. Larry
  13. Very clever and attractive. It looks like it should have religious significance. does it?
  14. How did you create the cracking on IMG_2198_crop.jpg IMG_2127.JPG
