^6 reduction - soda dan hill

updated sun 10 nov 02


Dan Hill on sat 9 nov 02

Hello June
I use a combination of about 4 parts soda bicarb, 2 parts soda ash and 1
part borax mixed into warm water. A total of about 1500 grams(3 lbs.) of
that mixture is spayed into the kiln with a garden sprayer. My kiln is about
30 cu. ft. in stacking space. ^6 works great Go for it!
