• Set Cone
• Set Firing Speed for FAST
• Leave kiln lid cracked about 1”
• Leave all “peep holes” open
> Start kiln
• When kiln stops smoking, close lid
This will usually be about 45 minutes into the firing (with a small kiln)
“Peep holes” may remain open
• When kiln shuts off,
crack lid (1”) IMMEDIATELY
This is the most important step!
• Let kiln cool down naturally
• Remove ware when kiln has cooled
Approximate firing time is about 1 hour
• Turn ALL switches on HIGH
• Put 022 cone into “Kiln Sitter”
• Same instructions as above
*INSTRUCTIONS FOR COLD APPLICATION/LOW TEMPERATURE DECALS:
Place the decal in a shallow pan (such as a developing tray) of warm water and soak for about 30 seconds, or until the color layer begins to slide from the backing paper. The decal can now be applied to the ware.
Apply the decal over the object face-up, and slip out the backing paper from underneath.
Adjust the position of the decal on the ware to the desired location. Using a rubber squeegee or a damp sponge, stroke from the center of the decal towards the outer edges until all excess water and air bubbles have been removed and all wrinkles have been smoothed out.
Allow the decorated ware to dry for at least 4-6 hours (preferably 24 hours).
OPTIONAL – REMOVING THE COVERCOAT:
Start at the outside edge of the covercoat and use a razor or your fingernail to get under the covercoat. Slowly lift the covercoat and peel it off the ware. Wipe the surface clean with a damp cloth or sponge.
OPTIONAL – HEAT CURING:
If you desire, you can further cure the decal on the ware by heating it in an oven to 320 degrees Fahrenheit (160 degrees C) for 20 to 25 minutes. Be careful not to exceed 320 degrees Fahrenheit or 160 degrees C.
