I have a question: I Made a platter for a friend's daughter who is getting married. As you know I have a msll kiln and the platter barely fit. I used some kiln shelf liner to lean the platter against. It did great! BUT some of the soft shelf linerstuck tot he small spots... how can I remmove that and retouch those spots without firing again. Also the center is a leaf impression. I wiped the glaze on then wiped it off so the veins would show. Can I use a clear finishing solvent that is used on enamel?
These are my favorite Dremel grinding stones I use for small sharp edges on ceramics. They come in a couple of different shapes, but this seems the most useful, since I have the others and I always grab this one... http://www.toolorbit.com/Dremel/Dremel-84922.html
As far as the question about clear finishing solvent... I'm not exactly sure what you're using it for. Is it because you wiped off too much glaze? If you wiped off too much glaze and the clay is too "naked" now, you could just put some clear glaze on it and re-fire. The platter should have shrunk more in your last glaze firing, and might fit better in your kiln now. Plus, you could touch up those ground-down places with some more clear before you re-fire it, and make the grind job less obvious.
