I did a pot melt last night using Paul’s firing schedule. When I opened the kiln several of the elements were hanging from the lid.
Can I just put in more element pins to hold them in place if I decide to do another pot melt?
Can I fire lower than 1700 if I use a longer soak?
I’ve noticed that Slumpy’s and a couple of other places have the pre-drilled “pots” for pot melts. How do they clean out these if they decide to change colors? I know some people just use flower pots and it doesn’t matter…..just use a different pot. Just wondering about these that are sold.
You can go a bit cooler, and hold longer (the bottom temp will depend upon your kiln — probably no cooler than 1625). You really can’t get all the glass out of the container, so it’s suggested you have a different pot for each color (thus, the recommendation to use less expensive flower pots).
