Is My Greenware Dry Enough to Bisque?

One question we get a lot over at Big Ceramic Store is “how do I know if my piece is dry enough to bisque fire?”

Well, it's easier than you think.

Touch your greenware to the inside of your wrist. If it feels warm it is usually dry. If it feels cool then let it dry longer. Greenware feels cool due to moisture evaporating.

Remember, don’t rush drying your pieces as uneven shrinkage can cause cracks to form. If that happens, try using Marx Magic Mender.
