Re: What can I do to save this piece?

Thanks , Brad



had to look for the meaning of "divots". in order to answer you.
The piece is absolutely flat, so there is no need to flip and fire.

Decided to keep it as is, for the time being.

Anyhow thanks for the lesson

Re: What can I do to save this piece?

Thanks, Brad and Jim please excuse my limited understanding. Should I re-fire the piece thru the whole process of kiln-pressing? If not, if you mean regular firing, what temprature should I reach?? And then what? The back side will be fire polished, while I could sift some powder and fire polish the...

Re: Concerning firing enamels

Thanks, Dianne I love the idiom "foolproof" it is applicable for me. I have a whole stock of colorline enamels at home, some of the are old and actually useless. Anyhow I'd like to buy powders - i assume they are safer to keep, in the long run. Thanks for your imput about separating the bl...

Brad Walker wrote:Never owned one, but Denver kilns have a reputation for not holding up over the long term.

What does this mean? [sorry for my poor English]
Does it wear out quickly?? i.e. Does not last long?
Or
Does this mean that it can't fire high?


Thanks,

I am considering Denver Kiln KL-CS27RT Clam Shell , and with the table coming out. Not cheap but I believe will serve me good. Also need to consider ship...

Re: Annealing temprature

Thanks Michael and Brad, Brad, I remember I read in one of your wife's books that she anneals at 516, and I asked you about it then. Your answer was similar to the one you wrote here. Only this time it is even more detailed. Usually I anneal at 482, but when firing something thicker, I anneal at 516...

Re: FIRE POLISHING

Thanks, Brad
Then I think it's a lost case for my friend. It is a 3D piece. He told me that he did some coldworking on the piece, but got scratches, of which he wanted to get rid - thru firepolishing.
I assume he would not like to distort what he made.
Will ask him again

Keep safe!
