  1. hi team - hopefully someone can help ive tried 3 different engobe recipes and am mixing in green stain (in a water and stain mix) . Unfortunately it keeps coming out with white splotches . The wet ingredients look oily in each as well. I have added cmc gum but that hasn’t helped. Is dispex an idea? Thanks in advance
  2. Hi all, Currently I work with mid-fire slip and glaze my work 'traditionally' to achieve quite muted, natural tones. I'm thinking about making some wares that I want to be BRIGHT and flat in colour - like popping, primary colours. I'm wondering what the best way to achieve this level of colour would be? In my experience using stains in glazes never seems to achieve the flatness I'm after. I would suspect a coloured slip might be the answer but again using stains only seems to result in pastels - what is the average ratio of stain to slip to achieve a full bodied red for example? Or would I paint the work all over with an underglaze? Or something else. All suggestions appreciated!
  3. HELP ..... ... Trying to get back to ceramics .I’ve just finished mixing a small quantity batch of stains and underglazes with slip ( same clay bodies nothing else ) I’ve used 60 % slip to the ratio of about 10% stain to both stain and underglazes But have found that the underglaze slips are much thinner than the stain slips .Consistencies are different .Most stains seems to be thicker than underglazes Aside from black and purple which are def thinner . How to rectify ......???? Do I add more slip or stain to thicken ??? Or is it more complicated than I imagine . ? Bare in mind I am not adding anything else ie frits etc Thank you Nicky
  4. Hi all, I want to try majolica and have read that frit should be added to oxides and stains but is that always necessary? What would be the outcome if I just mixed it with water and maybe CMC (which I already have) I'm just trying to avoid buying things that are unnecessary. Thanks in advance.
  5. Hi folks, once again, no new questions in the pool, so I will muddle through with another QotW. . . . QotW: Do you use commercial products or do you mix your own? In my small studio, I could never imagine mixing my own clay bodies, it would just take up too much space. Much easier to just order what I want in clay from Standard Ceramics in Pittsburgh. Yet I do mix glazes, and slips. I try to stay away from most commercial products that way as the cost is easier for me to make my own. I have purchase some underglazes, and mason type stains to mix colors that are hard to reach with ^6 unless you have a more elaborate set up than mine. My use of commercial product is based on convenience more than anything else along with a healthy eye on budget. So what is your mix of Commercial and home mix as the original question was: QotW: Do you use commercial products or do you mix your own? best, Pres
