  1. Thanks for sharing! I looked through and got a lot of good info out of it!
  2. Thanks for sharing the sources! I have a feeling I'll be using the glazing techniques pdf quite often now!
  3. Hello! Recently I was talking with another potter about AMACO's new "Cosmic Tea Dust" and "Aventurine." I mentioned that I loved the sparkles they have and she said it's just crushed mica. I know very very little about glaze so I was wondering if anyone has tried adding mica to their glazes and what the outcome was? Did it any sparkle show through? If not, does anyone have other suggestions to get that sparkly twinkle into my glazes? I use in-house glazes at my studio which fire to cone 5 for reference! Thanks so much!
  4. Thank you so much for welcoming me! I'm still learning how everything works that's for sure :) Good to know that using an underglaze could be an option. I will definitely be making test tiles before I commit if the dark clay is the route I take!! I will also be looking through the Standard 266 forum you suggested. I'm loving having a place to hear from people that have hands-on experience with things that I haven't had a chance to work with yet!
  5. That's a great idea! I've only worked with a red iron oxide once before on Brown 112. It gave a very rustic look, however it was pretty transparent. That could've been because I applied a thin coat. Do you recommend a certain type of iron oxide that would give the color and effect I am looking for on a white clay body? Thank you so so much!
  6. Hey guys! I'm looking to make a sink basin for my bathroom in the upcoming months. I want to use Standard Ceramics 266 Dark Brown Clay with a turquoise/seafoam glaze on the interior while leaving the exterior bare. Attached is an idea of what I would like to do. I have never used a dark clay before, so I don't have experience to work off of and can't make test tiles until it is safe to use the studio again. Would coating the inside of the clay with a white underglaze cause the blue glaze to stand out more? Does anyone have a good glaze suggestion that stands out and reacts well to this clay? Or does anyone have other suggestions for completing this project whether it be clay type, glaze, helpful tips, etc.? Thanks for all the help!!
