A good quality silver foil will stay silver. Bullseye sells a foil that will work.

Re: plaster

I tried making molds out of various plasters we had around the house and they turned to dust when I fired them. But it was good practice, and would be a good way to make a practice mold or a reverse mold that you would make your permanent mold from. Does anybody have some good sites to go for these...

If you make your own frit, it won't come out of the process sized perfectly. You'll need to sort it into various sizes. You can do this easily with different mesh screens, available at most pottery supply places. There is no one best size of frit to use in pate de verre. Different size frit gives di...

I have the #761 and would recommend it over Covington's other models. Changing belts is fairly straightforward, only takes a moment or two. It takes a few times to get the hang of adjusting the tension, but after that all's ok. Hooking it up to a water source was not difficult, but you do have to bu...

I saw the thread started by Els called "Kvetch" which was a discussion of old board/new board. By the way.. can't find that thread ANYWHERE now... maybe I'm not up-to-speed on the SEARCH function yet?). I deleted the thread. It had deteriorated into a pissing contest between two of our board regula...

A couple of additional comments on the new board vs. the old. The level of posts from the old board to the new is relatively unchanged. The number of newbie posts, as well as the number of not-a-full-name posts, is also relatively unchanged. I don't think the level of discussion is changed significa...

It seems to me we have two distinct camps, one which feels that the old board was better and one that likes the new board. It seems that many of the old, longer term visitors like the old board best, while many of the newer posters like the new format. According to the poll, the new format seems to ...

You're right, Rodney, that 10 pounds of the POWDER in the Hotline Fuser's Glue would be a lot of powder. However, I doubt very much if Ed Hoy's would sell you the powder by itself -- it's a proprietary mixture, and they're not likely to give away all their secrets. Regarding different glues, between...

One litre of Hotline pate de verre and fusers glue costs under $5.00 wholesale. 4 litres (roughly one gallon) would weigh around 10 pounds. A $20.00 sale is a very small one, especially for wholesale. It's far less than Ed Hoy's minimum order. The definition of wholesale varies from place to place, ...

To me, the irony about the whole board format argument is that I read the posts by email (and did on the old board, too). As a result, the board format doesn't really matter to me from a user perspective (administration is a different issue) -- in either case, I just get emails and just click on the...

There are a number of different approaches. The simplest is to use Java to disable the right click. This can be broken by someone who really wants the images, but it will will work for many people and would have probably worked in Judy's situation. Here's what it does (try right clicking on an image...

It's hard to tell for sure, but I think both. You definitely can't clean it off.

Re: Vote on board format

Does return to the old board format mean: Keeping this site but having only a main forum and a classified forum to match the format of the old board? Or are you thinking of dropping this site program and returning to the old site program? The second option. I've been asked by several people to drop...

There are several issues with this bill. For starters, it's not as simple as it sounds.

I wonder if you can sell the piece to your spouse and have them donate it?? If you claim the income from the sale, then I suppose your spouse could claim the donation. But what would that accomplish? Regarding the value of the donation, Marty is right. In the US, the IRS only allows artists to dona...

Given the fairly large quantity of newcomer posts we've been having lately, it certainly makes sense to have a newcomer board. That seems straightforward, but I'm not sure how other boards would work (or how to segment things). Anybody have any suggestions?

There are overglazes made for slumping (e.g. Back Fire) that have higher lead content (I believe) and melt at lower temperature. They are intended for smoothing the back of a bowl during slumping. I don't know if they would leave a clear vitreous finish on the top surface. They don't. My experience...
