NO Cracks or anything !! Think the p-clay is the clay for me to use ...........

Photo my first complete 6 panel set !!!

Never in over 8 trys have I been able to get all 6 to survive.

Even when firing mutliple sets one would always break.

Congratulations on the successful firing. Did you turn the kiln flat or leave it on its side?

But I see you are still sleeping. Do you have a pillow under your head?

I am waiting to see how you frame that 6 panel set. That will be special to see. I hope Peggy gets you straight up pretty soon.
