Drying the pot to
spray more glaze
Applying release layer to the glaze catcher-
1/2 kaolin +
1/2 aluminum hydroxide
I don't use glue. You have to move the pots by holding the glaze catcher.
Placing the pot on the catcher
Cracking the seal between the fused pot
and catcher after the firing.
|Tapping the catcher after heating|
|Grinding the glaze from the foot. It is difficult
to see what you are doing with a bench grinder
on smaller pots and completely impossible
on large pots.
I am grinding this one in front of my spray booth. The fan is powerful and pulls all the dust out.
Note- not for those concerned about the risk of using a grinder without the safety guard. Wear heavy gloves.
Good tools for grinding
Diamond cut off disk for fast grinding.
||Diamond hook-and-loop pads for fine finishing.
