I use titanium sheet in the kiln in place of the mica. The sheet
is continuously reusable and the enamel comes off just like with
There is an airframe manufacturer in south San Diego County who
sells the scrap at like $2.00 a pound. The students at the J.C.
would buy the wire to make chain mail suits for the Renaissance
Fair held in this area every year. Last time they went
down there they bought several hundred feet of titanium wire and
some small sheets about 6x6 and .03 thick. I bought several
feet of wire and they sold me one square of material.
I recently bought two trivet kiln elements from :
California Crafts Supply
1201 E. Ball Road
Anaheim, California 92805

They had two sizes, one about 6 inches and the other about 8
inches. Can't find the bill but as my failing memory remembers
not too expensive. Like $25.00 for two, one of each because
that's what my checkbook stub says. Was able to fit the larger
heating element directly into a hot plate that was not being
used. I think Thompson Enamels still sells that type of kiln.
Need to quit as it's ice cream time and a tv movie (?). I really
should study my AutoCAD homework.
