Day 92: 100 Pots in 100 Days

Diary

Played with slip today. Then had fun with throwing getting ready for playing with slip tomorrow!

Research

Smoke firing 

Dad starts off in the electric kiln and then smokes in an old bin with interesting wood clippings. the pots are cool and the wood fire is completely separate. If you take pots out of an electric kiln too early, when the kiln is hot, you can ruin the elements.

Burnishing

Some people use oil to cover the pots, let it slip in and then burnish

Some people start the process of burnishing off on the wheel.

dad uses a sone and a metal tool. Finishing off with plastic. He does not use terra sigillata

If you are going to burnish a slip with a colourant in it the colourant needs to be less than 10% of the mix.
