  1. Christmas is coming, and clay/glaze shortages are aplenty... I've run out of all my normal clay, and all that remains is an unmarked, untouched, twisty-tied bag of clay that I have NO RECOLLECTION of purchasing. I don't have time to test run it in a high/mid fire kiln load, and I have a few more pieces that need to be made. Is there any way I can figure out what cone it is without firing it? I've narrowed it down to either being Laguna's cone 5 half and half (but there's usually a sticker label), or an Aardvark low fire throwing clay. It's a light beige-y grey, and very smooth. Any suggestions? I'd REALLY rather not melt a bunch of nice dishes all over the bottom of the kiln shelf
  2. Can work with two different kinds of clays with different porosity together when marbling or doing other clay combinations? For example one terracotta which ends up very porous and one stoneware clay that vitrifies to be less porous? Or will it crack?
  3. Hello all! I’ve been wanting to play with mason stains to color my cone 6 porcelain (slip casting) clay body. I eventually want to get a feel for the whole spectrum of colors and my goal is to use combinations of different stains to get unique colors. I know that you can find out which stains are tried and true on Mason Stain’s reference guide for clay bodies but I’m curious as to what stains you all would recommend to go with for starters! I’m also wondering if you guys have played with any stains that aren’t recommended for body stains but still worked and didn’t burn out. Thanks for your time!
  4. I am making some drinking mugs for a Renaissance Faire. I am using Kentucky Mudworks Brown Bear clay body, one I have just started using recently (I LOVE the beautiful chocolate brown color after firing). I threw the mugs and then attached a shield-shaped slab piece on the front, and am etching out the name of our Ren Fest on the front. I love the idea of leaving the shield unglazed and just glazing the rest of the mug around it, but I'm afraid the etched out words/image will not be very legible since the clay is so dark. I tried to find pictures of similar things on the internet and couldn't find it. Any ideas on whether it will be legible or I should try underglaze on the letters? (and which colors underglaze would work?) Or other options altogether. They are all already thrown, so slip is not an option at this point.
