I’ve just joined Orchid forum and haven’t clearly understood forum
system yet. So maybe the question that I will ask is already
answered. I have bought Ian Ferguson’s book about mokume gane
technique and found a strange thing: James Binnion sugests to make a
billet about 3- 12 hours in a kiln, and in the book for all the
compositions it is 60 minutes, logicaly 1 hour is too little, so how
can I determine how long should I leave my kiln working (I have
electrical kiln wich can support exact tempreture for a long time).
And the other question is - what is “ochre”? is it just a simple
paint ( like oil paint or other kind…) or this is some kind of
special paint? maybe someone could post a link with photos of the
paint package or anything. I would be very grateful.
If there will be any answers I hope I will be able to find theme
somewhere in the forum
