Topic: bottle label removal
Replies: 5

I probably have a few hundred wine labels that I've collected over the years. I soak in hot water with dish soap and most lables just float right off. Certain labels just won't come off in one piece. If a price tag was placed over the label you should remove that first before soaking. Good luck. Jack

That's great, I just ordered some.... it's really expensive, too. I hate the texture part of it, but it sounded so great to not have thinfire or kilnwash to deal with.... too good to be true? Thanks for posting your results, Marty. I found removing the texture to be more trouble than it was worth. ...

Hello ... My understanding is this is how it is done - basics only as I've never done it myself ... Cut some fiber paper/board strips ... say 1/8" thick fiber paper/board and lay them on a kiln shelf a suitable distance apart .. say 1" or so - all horizontal to each other . I won't say 1/8" thick f...

Did anybody in here apply? Have you heard anything yet? Seems like it didn't take this long in past years.

Copyrights?

As discussed in the "Inspiration" thread, I have been accused of copying some one else. Here are pictures of the piece in question. They are the square wavy plate. I have not seen the pieces that are claimed to have been copied. The blank for this piece was made before I had even seen any of the wor...

It's almost like why would you want to use someone else's language when one's own voice can be heard? It just seems, to me atleast, that it takes a whole hell of a lot more effort to use someone else's language when your own voice is right there trying to sing. Amy I like what Amy is saying.

I just read through this thread up to now and with the exception of Jack Bowman, who has a real issue to deal with, I don't get it. I'm not sure what issue I have to deal with or how to deal with it. I mentioned in my original post that I wasn't particularly thrilled with the piece in question and ...

Darn. I posted twice. But the second post has one line added at the end that I consider important. Please read at least the last line of the second post.

Stuart asks... If I understand you correctly you have a angular grinder, I assume like the one in the link below, that has a set of rotating pads that goes to 1800. Where does one get diamond pads to fit those in the US? Anyone knows? Stuart, http://www.granitecitytool.com/stone-tool-cat.cfm?catnum=...
