Update to the Firing Schedule of Quick-fire Copper and Quick-fire Bronze

I have updated the Instruction Manual for Quick-fire Copper and Bronze. Please download the new manual.

The update is in regard to the firing schedule of mixed pieces of copper and bronze, meaning pieces that are made out of both copper and bronze.

Here is the updated schedule:

Cover the box loosely with either a stainless steel sheet or fiber paper (shelf paper). Ramp at full speed to:

1520°F (825°C) in a top loader kiln;
1600° (870°C) in a front loader kiln.
Hold for 2:00 hours.

This hotter and shorter schedule seems to yield better results.

Also, for all firing schedules, it is not necessary to discard all the carbon. You can save most of it by removing the ash.
