It's 1:00 AM and I'm still awake. My kiln came today! As excited as I am, I'm terrified to set it up. I'm not good with directions, and a kiln is something I should really know how to use before I use it. Right? So I decided to get up in the middle of the night to read through the packet that accompanied the beast. I feel better.
Now I realize that I'm missing some essential tools that I need to actually do the enameling. A firing fork, a trivet stand, spatula, sifters that work (my homemade ones are really inefficient.) So instead of easing my mind back to sleep, I now have to do a search for the missing puzzle pieces. I've gone this far, I can't procrastinate now because I'm missing some odds and ends.
