Majollica paste – my “geusstimate”

Leave a comment

Similar to a clay cunnngham post in ceramic arts daily, but i dont want the firing temperature to be cone 05, so my geusstimate is to just use 200g fritt 4124 with 80ml water and a splash of saturated epsom salts. Then i will add stain till i like the colour. Its a geusstimate because im learning as i go and wonder if its the gertsley borate that lowers firing temp and hoping that the same fritt in both glaze and paste is a good idea.
Mixing only today coz its far too muggy do do anything else till tomorrow

There are two things that without, I wouldn't recognise my life. One is my cheeky beagle Baxter who answers to all sorts of endearments starting with "B" except his actual name :-) and my pottery. They both make me happy and hopeful.
