Changing Order

Well, it turns out I made a few mistakes in the glaze materials order.

I misread my price list when I was looking at the silver nitrate. I thought that it was $2.02 per pound, but that was for a different material. Silver nitrate is several hundred dollars per pound. We had wanted it for a gold raku glaze, but will hold off on ordering any. When the time comes, I'll probably order a hundred grams or so.

Our supplier says that Barnard clay is no longer available. There are substitutes that various companies carry, each for vary specific uses. Julie and I wanted it for a black raku glaze, but I will look for a new recipe that use contemporary materials.
