Can I use Clay? - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



Photo Galleries are back! Instructions below.

Dear forum users,
Thank you for your patience with the Photo galleries. We've got your galleries online!
We have finished writing a custom script to migrate the PhotoPlog to vBulletin5’s albums.

Unfortunately V-Bulletin killed the "Photoplogs" in their software upgrade which was unforeseen and we're the first development group to have written a script for getting the galleries back... that said, it took some time to reverse engineer the code and get the albums to move over seamlessly!

Forum users will be able to access their “PhotoPlog” images through their user profile page by clicking on the “Media” tab.
They will also be able to browse other albums by going to the albums page. (On the forum site, there is a link in the black bar beside “Forums” to the albums.)

In order for users to create an album please follow the steps below.
1) Go to user profile page and click “Media”
2) Click Add Photos
3) Enter Photo Gallery Title in the first field
4) Click Upload or Select from Photo Album to add photos
5) Click Post
6) Once posted, the album will be created as a “Topic” on the albums page for the public to see. The topic title will be the “Photo Gallery Title” they created before uploading their photos.

To create this migration path we used vBulletin5’s default album structure. Unfortunately, it won’t work like the “PhotoPlog” but is an album/gallery component on the forum now.

  • Can I use Clay?

    Hi all,

    I am have trouble getting my hands on Mortar Clay or Fire Clay, up here in the tropics. So I went to an art suppler and they have Clay powder that can withstand temperatures to 800 centigrade.

    Can I use this in the dome mortar instead of Mortar Clay/Fire Clay...?

    Anyplace that can get powdered clay, a pottery supply, will be able to get you fireclay. It's better and cheaper.

    As far as art clays, there are literally hundreds of them. It would be hard to comment without knowing the specific product.

      The Clay that they have is "Walkers stoneware No:10" the only info that they could give me is

      Shrinkage % @ º C = 12.5@1300
      Water absorb % = <0.5
      Vitrified Temp °C = 1260

      Would this do?

        I went back to the art suppler to ask for some more information and he said:

        Name: Walker stoneware No:10
        Shrinkage % @ º C = 12.5@1300
        Water absorb % = <0.5
        Vitrified Temp °C =1260

        Will this do?
