milkymoonceramics Posted December 12, 2022 Report Share Posted December 12, 2022 Hello I make tiny white pieces of jewellery, I push nichrome wire loops into the tops of the pieces and hang them onto wire bead racks and fire at home. I never used to have a problem with this, but since I have been firing at home and not taking them to a shop to be fired, I have found that the tops of my pieces sometimes get sprinkled in a ghastly black dust at glaze firing, presumably from either the nichrome wire or the bead racks. I bought a new bead rack and this doesnt solve the issue, and it has happened with several different wires. Any ideas what might be causing this and how to prevent it? My pieces are very white and delicate so it is basically ruining everything I make Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
