I 'heart' cork clay # 2 !

Well nine little babies are all covered and ready for a firing..and now the fun really begins, Mr Google gets a hard core work out, all my silver clay books litter every surface in the room and still no real answers. Why is it so dam hard for the so called experts to write in a way 'I' understand...or is it this way because your firing program is your trade secret....regardless, from what I gather the kiln needs to ramp to a moderate heat to allow the cork clay to burn out, hold it there for a while to make sure its all burnt out then ramp it up to your desired firing time. 

So I did my sums, took a punt and whoola, my first firing with cork clay!
