How to Remove Glaze ?
Remember I made two vine vases? One was very tall and the other is the vase above. Well I put the same crackle glaze on the tall vase as this shorter vine vase above. The crackle glaze shivered off the other vase during the firing. Luckily I didn't fire this taller one below. So the taller vase is sitting in the cabinet with the glaze on it.
But how do I get the glaze off the tall vase so I can glaze it with another glaze? I can wipe the outside off, but how do I get all the glaze out of the inside? It's 16.5 inches tall and 4 inches wide and too tall and skinny for me to get my hands inside. Wish I was tall and skinny. Ha!
Do I just wash it out and then let it dry real well and then re glaze it? Maybe I'll bring it with me and sneak it into Meredith's kiln, it's cone 10 clay. I could use a cone 10 glaze. Think she'll notice if I put it in her kiln?
Many times I have a question and no one to ask, so I might start a regular post on Tuesdays with a question and call them question Tuesdays. What do you think? I mean what do you think about the vase? Comments are welcome.
