Pinholes are making me crazy! Yes, I have done everything I know to
do...sloooow bisque to cone 04, slow glaze firing with soak (as per John's schedule),
wiping dust off bisque, sieving well...I know all that. And I have gone over
the archives. Well, I found one obscure comment about OVERFIRING could cause
pinholes. OK, ???...when I fire Desert Buff which is cone 4-6 and the cone is
tip touching, do you think I have gone too high and that is causing
pinholes??? I also noticed in an old post that Veegna had mentioned pinholes with
Desert Buff. Any Desert Buff buffs out there? I'm ready to chunk it all! Please
give me advice.
