Hi! I did my first experiment with glazing under my platter. I found an article that said to use a 3 inch stilt for a larger piece. Unfortunately it didn’t say to use at least two and place them on the ends of the piece. It warped of course at cone 5, I’m not sure that it still wouldn’t have warped. I just won’t glaze underneath anymore but I’m wondering if there’s anyway to save the platter now that both sides are glazed. Is there anyway to flatten it out without it sticking to kiln? Thanks -Newbie
Hey all, I was informed a while back that most commercial slips are deflocculated with Darvan, which can cause adverse effects (warping) on the resulting wares depending on the temperature of the room in which casting occurs. I have found in my testing that this is certainly the case, trying my best to control all other variables within reason only changing the temp of the room. Cold temps certainly seem to increase warping. What I'm wondering is if anyone has any ideas regarding what the ideal temperature would be for slipcasting with darvan in it. I am trying to minimize warping as much as possible without having to heat my workspace to unnecessarily high temps. I can't seem to find anything about this online and would appreciate any direction greatly! Cheers, Cole
