  1. Hi,

     

    I've been using Amaco 38 for about two years but...I'm just thinking there has to be a softer solution.  Yes, I wedge.  The bag has not been sitting for long at all.  So, I'm looking to others for some guidance.   

     

    I can center and pull fine but, I have to use more force than others in videos that I watch.  I cone up and down normally to center and then use another strategy to make sure it's truly center.  However, coning seems to take so much work and I see others doing it and its like they are playing with play dough.

     

    I want to do this for a long time because I love it...but, something has to give.  

     

     

    Thanks,

    Leslie


  2. howdy.  I have been experimenting with low fire glaze that is safe for food use with stoneware clay.

     

    I am firing bisque at cone 05 and glaze firing to cone 05.  My mugs look great and then I add in hot water and they start to craze.  the craze is faint but, I can see lines.  

     

    Should I bisque fire to 04 and keep glaze to 05?   

     

    I have an old kiln so, I don't really want to use any high fire glazes so, this works best for me.  Any advice will help.
