No Rhyme or Reason


There seems to be no rhyme or reason why I get colors out of the bronze clay. The batch on the right was fired last week and the batch on the left was fired this week. It does seem that the reds and purples come from the bottom layer... however the orange batch was on the bottom. The difference is that there wasn't a layer on top of it. It's always a surprise.

could it be the 'age' of the carbon used? i'm wondering how many firings you can get from a batch before it starts losing its coloring ability...do you have any clues about that? i still haven't busted out my packages yet...argh...
