My wife and I have been very fortunate to purchase a new home with a Ceramics Business built in. The lady is retiring and has left 100's of molds, slip, paints of all kind and (3) kilns. We have the most simplistic knowledge about the business and need to come up to speed on painting techniques.. Wet, dry, when to fire, glazing, etc>….. I just learned that bisque means the piece had been fired once and ready for first paint application if that tells you how new we are to the craft.
We are extremely anxious to keep the business going but the lady is 87 and tired and ready to just move to the mountains with her family so not allot of info has passed.... any help/direction is greatly appreciated.....
We did order a new Christmas Tree mold in preparation for the season demands and I feel this would be a good example for someone to give us ideas, start to finish, on making the piece look great with the glazed or shiny finish.
