  1. Hi, I'm trying to get the elusive oxidation copper red with localized reduction glaze to work. Everywhere I look it suggests 600 mesh silicon carbide is necessary to get the localized reduction. The silicon carbide I have is 400 mesh. How can I increase the mesh of my silicon carbide?
  2. Crystalline Glaze Chemistry Several have inquired about this specialty glaze in recent months, so I thought I would post an introduction into crystalline chemistry. The very first thing to do with this glaze is: throw out your glaze calculator and UMF spreadsheet: they do not apply to this glaze nor can you bring it into unity. Basic cone 6 through 10 crystalline recipe is: 50% ferro frit 3110, 25% zinc oxide, 25% silica 325m, and a seeding agent (see later). ^ Lithium carbonate flux additions discussed later. This is the basic crystalline glaze r
  3. I have just started making my own glazes, I purchased the raw materials and I used my friend’s hood in her lab to mix up some of the glazes. I have bisqued pieces and the first coat of the glaze went on easily, BUT when I went to apply the the second coat it dried almost as quickly as the brush touched the pot, making it nearly impossible to apply a second coat. It was as if the glaze crystalized upon touching like in a supersaturated solution, but the glaze was well mixed and not supersaturated. This was with “Tin Foil II” and “MFE Turnidge”. I did not wait long between coats…
  4. Hey everyone! I'm in the process of creating a home studio, and I thought it would be a great idea to start making my own glazes. What are some good resources, magazines, or books that have helped you guys when it comes to introductory to advanced glaze making? Also, are there any tips or suggestions when I'm starting out! Thank you so much and any input would be greatly appreciated.
  5. Hi guys. I've started my aquaitance with ceramics and glazes half a year ago. I still have a very basic understanding of chemistry and I have several problems I'd like to ask about. First is clear transparent glaze. I made around 10 of them taking different recipes, but all of them contain bubbles. I've tried bisque firing in various temps, from 600 to 950C and second firing slow cooling, dropping and slow cooling, but bubbles are there and their quantity is similar in all conditions. I know commercial glazes don't have such problems. Please help me to figure out what is going on. My thoug
  6. Hi guys! Id love to start making my own glazes however I have no idea how to! Where I used to help teach the other artist always made the glazes and now on my own Id love to learn! Ive tried looking it up and watching videos but I just can't get the hang of it! Any help with ideas, recipes, recommendations and options would be great!
  7. UNDERSTANDING GLAZE CHEMISTRY WORKSHOP (CER074SA) Sharon Campus of New Hampshire Institute of Art Nov 12 (Saturday), 10am – 3pm Professor John Baymore $129 This one-day seminar workshop will provide participants with a basic understanding of the core concepts that can impact the creation, use, and evaluation of ceramic glazes for studio use. The use of the popular Insight ceramic chemistry calculation software will be introduced, and the approach used to this can be applied to any ceramic chemistry software. Troubleshooting of fired results, "food-safe" qualities, he
  8. does anyone know how these are done? I've never seen color like this before and I buy from an extremely large ceramic/ glaze supplier
  9. I use a lot of slip trailing on my work. I had originally been using casting slip for my slip trailing because it was easier and at the time I had no place to mix slip, but now that I've made my own I'm never going back. A few months back I made up a big half gallon jar of B-Mix slip that I use both for slip trailing and for painting inside cups and bowls of dark clay so I can do a bright color inside. I like it really thick, like sour cream, just thinned out enough that it will come out of the slip trailer, but when it's thick like that, it holds its shape really nicely and gives a beautifu
  10. What The Heck is Glaze Chemistry All About? Sharon Art Center Campus of New Hampshire Institute of Art Professor John Baymore This one day, seminar-type workshop will provide participants with a basic understanding of the core concepts that can impact the creation, use, and evaluation of ceramic glazes for studio use. The instruction of the widely popular ceramic chemistry calculation software, Insight, and its priciples will be presented. Troubleshooting of fired results, “food-safe†qualities, health and safety, legal requirements, and ventilation concepts will also be t
