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).
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 I have access to boxes of out of date medications, and currently have thousands of iron tablets, and potassium tablets I thought might be fun to play with in glazing.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.
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.
