I want to make a series of porcelain door knobs. At first, I thought I could slip cast a prototype -- but I'm having trouble figuring out how to fasten the knob to a spindle without glue. Another option would be to reglaze plain white porcelain knobs from Home Depot. Does anyone have experience with making ceramic door knobs? I've seen lots of threaded inserts for making cabinet knobs accept screws, but only one source for door knobs and it's $15 for just one piece! I looked into all kinds of hardware but can't find anything to match a door knob spindle, which is normally 9/32" with 20 threads per inch. If I try reglazing the commercial knobs, would it help to rough them up with sandpaper first? I understand that reglazing is unpredictable, but it sounds like a cone 4 - cone 6 would be safe. My last resort would be to use Pebeo paints and forgo glazing altogether -- but I much prefer the look and durability of ceramics glazes....
Hi - I was doing a glaze fire to cone 5 last night, and due to a dumb mistake on my part, the kiln shut off an hour too early. My question is this: can I save these pots by refiring them to the correct temperature? Can I do this without reglazing them? Is it even worth it? Any advice would be appreciated! Thanks!
I am a newbie to firing my own pieces. I fired this mug to cone 6. It is Coyote's Pistachio Shino. In trying to remove some glaze around the design so it would stand out I did not apply enough to this area resulting in this brown patch. This is how this glaze behaves with thinner application. Could I add a bit more glaze to this area and refire? If so should I use the same firing program I did originally? I am sure there are other threads about this topic but I would really appreciate advice to my specific situation since this a gift for a friend's upcoming birthday!!
Hi there I'm after some advice please. Currently I'm working with vintage China dinnerware and have been turning it into wearable pieces, I'm looking for a permanent way to seal the cut parts of my pieces and was wondering if a clear glaze would be an option ? Can old China be refired? I had been using an epoxy resin but I'm not very happy with the results . Thanks in advance
