Re: Pottery Kiln Wash?

Will work, sometimes sticks to glass during fusing more than a kiln wash formulated for glass.

Should work fine for coating molds.

My understanding is that you don't. You program how long it takes to get from one temperature to another. So there's no as fast as possible.

Re: replacement lid?

If you want a kiln like the one you have, just replacing the lid would be cheaper. Don't know how much, but Skutt could help. Or any place that sells their kilns.

Re: Iso-mag board

I'm interested in its machine-ability and whether it can take kiln wash. I've been having trouble with vermiculite board leaving a haze on the glass. Tried calcium silicate boards, they're prone to thermal shock, but perhaps this can work. Let me know what Jim says, if he can get it I can drive down...

Re: glass is breaking

Tony Smith wrote:According to the MSDS, it's a styrene-butadiene copolymer. The E6000 uses tetrachlorethylene as its volatile solvent. That means it is not a silicone and is more like rubber cement in its composition.


Thanks for the correction, Tony. I had always assumed it was silicone.

Re: Slumping into deep square mold

First, this is a really difficult mold to use well. It's most likely made as bisqueware and not for slumping. Being 9mm thick gives you a better chance of succeeding that being 6mm thick, but you'll not only have to worry about dogboning you'll also have to deal with the potential for uneven slumpin...

Re: Which kiln wash for Core Lite shelves

I just use Bullseye more or less the same as any other shelf. Might need recoating a little more often, but not much difference.

If it did I didn't notice it. But I used my kiln outside and ventilated a lot once the spray was applied. I know potters who use it on a regular basis.

Re: HOMEMADE IRIDIZING?

I wrote about using stannous chloride in the first printing of my book, Contemporary Warm Glass. Used it numerous times to iridize glass in the kiln, but took the directions out of later printings because it got harder and harder to locate due to hazardous chemical regulations.

Re: When a color doesn't strike

To help it strike better hold in the 1225 to 1240F range for half an hour one hour. Two hours is probably overkill.

Although it varies by manufacturer, the elements aren't all the same. Lengths can differ, as can other element characteristics. I'd stick to their recommendations. You can also get elements from people other than the manufacturer. Sometimes they're cheaper, sometimes they're not, but they usually ne...
