Hi I am a newbie and i have just purchased my first kiln a Skutt Firebox8 I am having trouble understanding if my firing schedule is correct as the pyrometer that came with the kiln is in degrees c not Degrees f. I have only done 5 firings but the edges of my pendants on the 3 layer ones are not quite meeting. 2 layers are fine.
Please Please Please could anyone please give me the best firing schedule for my kiln.
It is hard to give a fusing schedule when we don’t know what you did..but for 3 layers versus 2 you will need a higher temp and or, longer soak times. Try soaking for around 15-20 min at around 1000 f before going to the peak temp and if that is not enough then soak at the peak temp for 10 – 15 mins. Hope this helps… I have found patience is the hardest thing to learn when fusing. I don’t peek much anymore.
