    TJR got a reaction from Pugaboo in What direction is your wheel spinning?   
    Clayppl;
    Don't be switching your wheel to clockwise and training yourself to throw that way. If you do this, no one will be able to help you with techniques. When you watch youtube, you will have to reverse everything. All of us in North America, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Bermuda, etc throw counter clockwise. Lots of wheels only move in one direction-counter clockwise. If you lived in Japan and China, you would be O.K. going the other direction.

    This is what you want for greenware repairs.It is called spooze.
    1 Several tablespoons of your clay body, CRUSHED AS A DRY POWDER.
    2. two tablespoons of white vinegar.
    3.Caro syrup-a tablespoon or some other cheap syrup.
    Mix it up like a paste. Repair the work. Do not store it as it stinks from the syrup rotting.
    Good luck.

    The technique you are describing is called China painting. It is a very low temperature technique where you apply colour to an already glazed tile. The Chinese would apply red enamel to their already fired blue and white porcelain pottery.
    Ask your supplier about china painting.

    Elon Musk-designer of the Tesla electric car and owner od Solar city Solar Panels, and also owner of Space X, is now selling a unit for $3,000-$3500 dollars U.S. that will store power from solar cells. You no longer need inverters and batteries. It's all in one unit as big as a furnace. Great for off grid living. I believe I saw it in this month's issue of Popular Mechanics.
    I'll get back to you.

    Remember to wash the food out of your pottery before you throw it out.
