Just purchased my first kiln ?.
Now what ?? Do I need to put kiln wash inside? Do I need to prefire empty? Any suggestions?April 5, 2019 at 7:55 pm #14863BeckiParticipant
Your manual should explain what you need to do. Prefiring empty is usually recommended so that your elements can form a protective coating of aluminum oxide. After that kiln wash the bottom of your kiln and your shelf and start fusing. 🙂April 6, 2019 at 3:19 pm #14864AnonymousInactive
Thanks. I’ll do just that. Fire first then apply the kiln wash. ?
I never did find any recommendations about applying kiln wash to the inside of the kiln, but it just makes sense. Of course not the heating elements just the bottom.April 15, 2019 at 2:13 am #14869AnonymousInactive
Anyone else using an Olympic brand kiln? I have just purchased a 16″ x 6″deep, 120volt Olympic kiln ?. Does anyone have any suggestions for fuseing or slumping in this model?April 17, 2019 at 8:47 pm #14872Candace0523Participant
Fuzzyman – are you just starting out fusing? The fusedglass.org website has a bunch of firing schedules, ask to be added to their facebook group too. Glass Campus also has a great FB group!April 21, 2019 at 7:09 am #14875AnonymousInactive
