  1. Thanks to all who responded. I think I have decided to take a throwing class and make my own sinks. I know it will take some time to gain the skill but I have found only one place that sells unglazed sinks ready for painting. They are beautiful but also expensive. Thanks again!
  2. I want to paint on above counter sinks that I have found at the big box stores like Home Depot, Lowes, etc. I used to paint on old sinks that I found at Habitat for Humanity and I used cone 06 glazes. I would paint on top of the old glaze, using 06 underglazes and glazes and then I would put a lead based clear glaze. It would be fired at cone 06. They came out beautifully. I know that lead has been taken out of many of the glazes now and I don't know if that is what made it work before. I tried to paint on a sink I bought at Lowes with the same glazes and cone temp. All the glaze cracked off of the sink. Very disappointing to say the least. Does anyone have any knowledge about what commercial sinks might use for glaze? Could it be that it is a cone 6 glaze or higher? I just want to find the right glazes to paint on new sinks. Thanks so much
