  1. Forms are about 18 cm x 14 cm. And the walls need to be 1cm width
  2. hmm that's interesting, I would expect the wall thickness to depend on the desired ceramic wall thickness, no matter the size of the mold
  3. My molds are round shaped, with a wall thickness of about 3-4 cm. it’s ok for smaller molds, but for large ones they’re quite heavy. i’ve noticed after slip casting that water builds a round layer of about 1-1.5cm what’s a recommended wall thickness for slip casting molds?
  4. thanks for addresing my issue! i'll try to include some space in my next molds, and see what happens
  5. My mold is exactly the size of the object, so no extra room to cut it off hm ok.. i’ve tried to be careful to make sure the mold is always topped with slip, but the top layer dries as well, so that might be the reason as you mentioned.
  6. Hi, Anyone experienced similar defects when slip casting? Any solutions? Create a extra paster ring and cut after? Thanks!
  7. Is there any thread regarding Mason stains samples? Would be great if other people shared their samples, firing temperatures, percentages and stain codes. here are my latest samples. Firing temperature: 1060 C Base: matte transparent glaze black turned brown for some reason grey sage turned grey blue
  8. https://imgur.com/a/9a8c2NQ other mason stains samples, color codes and %. fired at 1060C, with a matte transparent glaze. grey turned blue for some reason. black turned dark brown
  9. Ordered some mason stains from scarva.com, and managed to do some test samples. Attached pics for Mason Robin’s Egg 1%, 2%. Satisfied with the 1%. thank you for the suggestions everyone!
  10. thanks guys for your input, going to order a batch of stains for my next set of tests. Hopefully i can achieve something similar :)
  11. Hmm Amaco satin line fires at 1200 degrees (cone 5/6) the clay i used needs to burn at 1020-1080 degrees (cone 4), so i guess the Amaco glaze is not an option
  12. I’m located in Romania, so far i’ve tried mixing a matte white glaze with a blue pigment 1%, but it feels more glossy, not this satin look. clay is also very light colored, almost a pinkish look.
  13. Do you think it’s achievable with Amaco satin line? https://pin.it/vrnjnootnbziqh SM-20 Light Blue
