Default I don't know how to get started.

I have always been interested in ceramics but don't know how to get started. Is it difficult? Where would I find out more?

Default driveway paver sealing

After several different companies that charge anywhere from $350 -1000 I have found a wonderful company called Covenant Janitorial . Desmond went the extra mile for us so I wanted to give others a heads-up. This is my first posting so I hope I am doing it correctly.

Janette,
You've made a good first step in learning to post. There are a couple of extra steps to find the right forum and start a new thread. First, go to the TOTV home page and review the list of forums. Your post would be appropriate for either the "Contractors and Services" forum or the New Member forum, since you are new.

Once you find a forum that matches the topic of your post, click on the forum to open it. Just below the ads at the top of the page, and above the first post, there's a button that says, "New Thread". Click that and post away.

Don't worry. We were all new once and didn't know that either.

p.s., Tony might come on and move your post to the right forum. If he does, neither my post nor aljetmet's clever and adorable one is going to make an ounce of sense. Oh well.

Janette, you must be a newbie . This thread is about getting started in ceramics! If you wish to talk about janitorial service you need to start a new thread, you can't hijack someone else's thread PLEASE!!

Now c'mon Diskman.....give Janette a break. Read Pturners post.

Gee whiz, I'm glad you weren't looking over my shoulder to see all my mistakes! And more power to you, Janette, for digging up a post from 2006!

BTW, TalkHost, how did you do with ceramics? I bet you're a pro by now!

Hang in there, Janette! I'll be looking forward to seeing more posts from you

I did ceramics in HS and again when we were first married. We took classes and went up to advanced techniques. What we didn't do is the clay/wheel bit where your hands get all muddy.

I wouldn't say it's hard, but if you have shakey hands it might be a little challenge but nothing that should stop you from the activity. I might even try it again in the future! The following may be some good reading for you:

Hubby and I did ceramics for a short while in the 70's. Sounds sort of funny, doesn't it...

We poured slip into the molds, emptied the molds, opened them, removed the greenware, cleaned it up, all work, but fun. Painting was the most fun and sometimes the paint color didn't resemble the final color.

If I could do it, you can do it. Give it a try, you'll reallllllly enjoy!
