A question regarding your spraying process. What (if anything) do you do to prevent over spray of the outside glaze from getting on the interior glaze? I have tried a couple different things (waxing the inside, spraying the outside first and wiping off over spray, etc.), but it is always a pain in the arse.
It is truly a pain...#1 I have learned to always consider the overlap and how the glazes will react and which should go first...#2 I tend to pick a layering that appeals.#3 OR if I REALLY want them separate- particularly in a mug type opening, I will pour in the inside...let it dry and then shove something in the opening to catch the glaze: a sponge or sponge like material or cloth/towel that I can wash later...
...and you think I'm a supergirl. Look at all those mugs! You are a machine!!
Thanks for the info. I have used a semi-matte black as a liner before, so it doesn't really matter much for that. I am going to be trying just a clear or white glaze soon, though, so over spray would probably look kind of off. I'll have to try the sponge/rag idea. Keep up the superlative work!
Thanks you guys!!!They are glaze firing NOW....
