I have two questions for all of you,
1. have any of you added silicon carbide to a copper glaze to create a false
reduction, and how does it effect longevity of kiln elements?
2. Has anyone ever done any tin chloride fuming? A freind gave me some, and
I would like to try it but I don't know how toxic it is.
Any information would be greatly appreciated.

I have Silicon carbide in a copper glaze at ^10 for a "local
reduction". It did not seem
to have any effect on the elements.I have also used tin chloride to
fume raku pieces by
spraying them between the hot kiln and the reduction chamber. These
are two entirely
I have also fumed salt kilns as they cooled to about 1900 and fumed
with tin chloride. Got a very
glitzy effect that I didn't really care for after all.
I would not recommend fuming with tin chloride in an electric kiln. I
think it would damage your elements and maybe your bricks.
