  1. I know about the dangers of sanding so how do people get around to sand their finish work? This is a mystery to me. I have been searching the internet looking for a wet sander with no luck. Everything is really heavy and bulky-not suitable for small hands How do you experienced potters do it other than manually? Any recommendations are greatly appreciated.
  2. Thanks Jeff! I’m looking into making/figuring out how to make my own jitter/jolly system. The learning curve has been so steep for me; from learning how to make plaster molds, making my own ceramic slip, my own underglazes and glazes, ...Now adding how to make my own plastic porcelain equivalent to the liquid and a jitter system it’s been fun though and I’m glad to have the control.
  3. He’ll Rareearth! I too do slip casting as many others successful potters. I’m using Tony Hansen’s L3778G recipe https://insight-live.com/insight/share.php?z=tgsPMxNsAP i plan to sell it in my functional tablewware and expect it to withstand hard use. I just adopted this recipe so i don’t have personal confirmation to give you but I’m banking on it
  4. Thank you glaze nerd. Really good to know!
  5. Hi Liam, I’m sorry for the delay -i was busy making slips and glazes Thank you for the suggestion-it’s really good to have the equivalent to Dylan Beck’s recipe. I decided to try Tony Hansen’s L3778G. Waiting the see the fired results in a week or do.
  6. Thanks Min! You are the kindest. I decided to go with Tony Hansen’s L3778G. I tried it for the first time yesterday. It’s casting really nice and it comes out of the mold much faster than my previous as it has very little water. I have not yet fired it but so far so good. I’ll keep you posted
  7. Thanks Min! I do have the book by Andrew Martin but he too is an artist. You might be right about the underfiring. I need to change the elements. Re the slip: thanks for taking the time to look/compare recipes -that is very kind I’m looking for a porcelain slip recipe that someone has been using g for functional ware themselves and that it has passed the test of time/wear. Today, I went ahead and mix
  8. Min Thanks for taking the time to look/compare recipes -that is very kind You are right about the underfiring. I need to change the elements. I do have the book by Andrew Martin, but he too is an artist. I’m not attached to the recipe I used. It was the first slip I ever made and now looking for one with proven record in functional tableware, a porcelain slip recipe that someone has been using g for functional ware themselves and that it has passed the test of time/wear. I’m also making terra sig AND my own glazes. I would like the slip recipe to be recommended. Do you
  9. Thanks Liam. I used the amaco satin. There are also cutlery marks but I decided to make my own glaze and now in the process of doing so. I feel like I’m starting over, but better now than later.
  10. Hi Min, This is the recipe. It’s from an artist and I think I should change so it’s truly functional instead of trying to fix it. Thank you! For a 5 gallon bucket of slip: Material Amountn cc Water 2 Gallons Darvan 7 68 grams OM 4 Ball Clay 10 lbs EPK 5 lbs Grolleg 5 lbs G200 Feldspar 5 LLP Nepheline Syenite 5 lbs
  11. Hello all, I do slip casting in porcelain using a recipe I found online and having issues with performance. Bowls cracked at bottom when coming into contact with hot soup, edges get chipped easily...Does anyone have a cone 6 tried & true porcelain slip for functional ware they want to share? One with proven market success that withstand everyday kitchen use? I’d REALLY appreciate this! Thank you in advance. Xo
  12. Thanks Bill! This is really good info.
