[Clayart] Offgassing bisque

Hi Robert, All,
I was just going to post and offer a related suggestion when I opened Robert's post: my contribution is that if there is any friction caused heat build-up then the heat expanded air molecules, if trapped under a tight cover seal, would hiss or woosh out on opening the canister.

It wouldn't take an extreme heat rise to create a small but measurable positive pressure.

Robert my dinner is waiting and I can't take time to wrap my head around the lubricating effect caused by the water vs possible friction heat from the porcelain objects and the polishing medium in water..

Perhaps you or someone would run this thru to a logical conclusion if you think this has merit.

Now Woof aller manger vite!!!  ..............................................................................................................................................

Apologies, but my Muse is also hinting" j'ai encore une "in the studio!!!   What she wants she gets!!!

I was assuming that the tumbling was done in water. It sounds like everyone
else is assuming it's done dry. (at least I'm assuming there wouldn't be
much frictional heating with water).
Which is it!
