Your first firing

This is the fun part! Let's get that kiln going on your first firing. Here's everything you need to know.

    • [link to PDF] Using your kiln for the first time: Yay! This is the part we’re all excited about. Here is a quick guide to that all-important first firing. 
    • Digital Controller Manuals (Bartlett V6CF, or Genesis 2.0): Full manuals from the maker of the digital controller, either the Bartlett V6CF, or Genesis 2.0. Your controller (the only thing with buttons) is the digital controller that needs to be programmed. It’s a bit like the keypad on your microwave, rather than a real “computer.” Just like a microwave, you have to press various buttons to set a defrost timer, etc. 
    • [insert video] Kiln Operation: here, Denny shows you the basics on how to operate your kiln.
  • How to Apply Kiln Wash: Kiln wash is a must - here’s how to mix it and apply it.
  • [link to page] Kiln Troubleshooting Guide: Everything not working the way you think it should? Having a problem. This guide takes you through common issues and how to fix them.
