I know this is an older discussion but it is sort of what I am asking so dont want to create a new discussion - if you see what I mean.
I have just got a workshop and want to have small group in to make and fire silver, copper and bronze clay. My problem is my husband has just lost his job and therefore a kiln is at the bottom of necessary expenditure and it has to be the right one.
I looked on Cherry Heaven and have boggled at the prices - the cheapest that would take a copper/bronze sintering tray is about £600 - but I know it would need to be more if I needed an enameling collar. I'm getting bogged down in all these terms and wondered if someone could help me work out if I need a small kiln that will manage a small group of people or is a larger kiln more cost effective in the long run?
Thanks in advance,
I bought a starter kit a few years ago and i loved it, I've still got the kit but i haven't been able to afford to buy any new clay at the moment although i am hoping to soon. I've been looking at the copper and bronze clay too, That looks really good.
It is easy to use once you know how and it is fun :)
The only downside i found was the price, especially if you're only just learning how to use it.
