  1. Hello, I am new to the forum and I already see answers to many questions I have been pondering. I have been an amateur potter for many years, and now as I am reaching retirement I want to work more seriously on my skills. I also like to experiment. I have access to boxes of out of date medications, and currently have thousands of iron tablets, and potassium tablets I thought might be fun to play with in glazing. Has anyone else ever done this or knows of anyone who has.
  2. I'm in the process of setting up my glaze kitchen. I have my dry materials mixing station located next to an outside wall, and plan to mount an exhaust fan above this station. Does anyone have a recommendation for CFM requirements for the fan? There are light-duty bathroom models to industrial designs; with the cost escalating appropriately. I want to be safe (Of course I will be wearing respirator while mixing) but don't have unlimited funds either. Thanks for any help.
  3. Hello and thank you for all the knowledge sharing here, which has helped me so much. What differences should I expect in specific gravity and firing results with different types of water for mixing up a glaze dry mix? My options are distilled water, very hard tap water, or softened water (a salt process).
  4. I'm new to mixing the Laguna dry glazes and Im having a hard time finding specific instructions. I'll be pouring so I'm wondering if anybody has the specific gravity or any other way to determine the correct pouring consistency. Before anybody suggests it, I have requested this information from the manufacturer more than once. I have been referred back to the online instructions which say to add "between 8 and 11 ounces of water per pound of dry glaze". I need more specific instructions than that. The glazes I'm looking for help with are: Power Turquoise Antique Jade Clear Bright Spring Green Navy Blue Peach Blush Blackberry Wine
  5. I'd like to install an affordable exhaust system in my small glaze room. For the last year or so I've been using a cheap big box fan set in window that's right in front of the mixing table to draw out dust. It's been working well but now it's just too cold to keep my window wide open. Maybe I don't need it if I just keep the door closed and wear a respirator? ( I always wear a respirator) I'm trying to keep costs down while still keeping the glaze lab inviting, right now it's super chilly and I have lots of work to do. Any advice would be much appreciated! Thanks a million! Christina
