  1. Hi guys, I bought a commercial white cone six glaze that is super standard and widely used in New Zealand. However, instead of being opaque as it should be, it comes out looking translucent, sort of milky. The glaze is mixed to average thickness and I coat for about five seconds. I also bought the brush-on version of the glaze but that comes out the same way. With the brushable glaze I apply three coats. I then fire to cone 6. My kiln sometimes overfires to about cone 7. Could this be the issue? A photo is attached with the glaze on two different clays. On the tile on the right, the glaze can be seen on the lower half. Any help would be much appreciated!
  2. Hello! Can anyone help me with advise related to casting with clay slip in a plaster mold? I have made a 2-parts mold, and unfortunately there are some tiny holes between the parts, so I can’t tightly close it with rubber bands for casting. Is it possible to use plaster tape or other sealing to prevent clay slip leaking out? Or other tips to repair the holes? Thanks already ☺️
  3. Cheers! I thank you very much if anyone can consult. I don't know why in the black or red ceramic paste (which I have high temperature), my faldespatico base enamels do not cover this clay. The enamels come out with bubbles.., although in white clay they work well for me. I understand that black clays contain ox iron and manganese..
