  1. Hi Melissa, coincidentally, I had shoulder surgery in November, 2011, due to the same maladies you have. You need to ice your shoulder. There are exercises that you can do; however, I suggest that you stop for a little while, as it won't get better unless you treat it. Also, make sure you are using your arms and hands properly while using the wheel. If you are not, even though you think so, it can harm you. Please take care of it now, because it will get worse. I of course, had a tear on my shoulder, which did not help. After surgery, 4 months ago, I am still on physical therapy and I am still have bursitis, tendonitis and a tear somewhere else. The doctor wants me to lay low for some time, therefore I can't use the wheel yet, and someone is helping me with the alb roller, etc. Ibuoproferin or Nsaid medication helps with inflammation, but most importantly, you need to lay low for a while. Ice it and look in the internet for exercises you can do at home. If it continues, please go and see a doctor. As you had said, you are too young. It will not get better!
  2. Yes Mark, I appreciated your thoughts. And did take them under consideration. Thank you. My gut told me it was the wrong thing to do right after I'd done it. Perhaps that's why it took me 8 days to set it up. This supplier was unwilling to meet the price on the VL-Lite. He said "that's a good price and I can't match it". He was willing to do a deal on a demo Skutt, but not anywhere near the price I could get from Clay-King on the VL-Lite. And now, with my experience and his demo wheels, I'll not be going that route again. I would hate to burn this bridge, so I'm really hoping the owner and I can work things out. But there is another supplier in town that is nearer to me. Look, it is the owner who needs to be concerned about burning bridges, not you. Your only concern is to get what you need at the price you can afford. I imagine that Mr. Owner is playing on your gullibility. Go elsewhere if need be. Anywhere you spend your money will support someones business. Local shmocal, if they are willing to rip you off. Don't worry anymore. Call the credit card company and stop payment that charge. This is one of the benefits of paying with a c card. Do not spend anymore time dealing with the seller. You did not get what you paid for, and they do not want to respond to you. Believe me, after the credit card starts corresponding with them, they will pay attention to your problem. Please do it very soon, and forget about trying to reason with them. Sometimes we get what we paid for, and I know it was not cheap. Good luck!!
  3. I have done a lot of art work using sgraffito designs. I love it; however, I use underglaze and greenware pieces. The first fire after applying the underglaze is at 019. Then I do the design and fire the piece at 03. Of course, because you used an underglaze, you most now use a clear glaze after that second fire and fire it again. To fire follow the cone instructions for that last coat of glaze. Try it, and let me know. I have pictures to share if you want me to send it to you, please write to me at raymar05@bellsouth.net, and I will provide my final results. Hope this helps.!! I am trying to send you a picture of one of my final products. All my sgraffittos are my own designs.
  4. Josh, I love to work with music. For the most part I like classic music, and love opera. However, at times, I also play Lady Gaga music. I think it will depend on how you feel that day. Good lick with your listening!!!
  5. I have 4 large pieces that I need to glaze, and they need to be "perfect" do you recommend using a paint sprayer for this? Please help, need some input. Thanks.
