  2. Hi Anu, I’m Deepthi, I live in Singapore and have been trying to find out how to bake terracotta at home…thanks for sharing the information, seriously your doing a wonderful job….keep going keep rocking…. handmade ku kandippa OOOOOOOOO podanum…

      • Higher the number, thinner the wire. You need a medium size thickness to hold the clay. I got 32 gauge and found it to be too thin. I havent tried 24, so cannot say if its too thick. May be 28 if you get, see the product before you buy. I got it online and found it to be thin. THanks

    • Hi Deepthi,

      You can bake terracotta at home if you have a coal based barbeque grill at home. Use coal briquettes instead of using actual coal as the briquettes give an even heat and burn for a longer duration at a steady temperature. We do the same and it works well for us. You can see some of our collections at http://www.wowtheterracottastore.com

  9. Hi Mam this is Rezi my terracotta jewellery getting burst while baking in klin pot could you please give me an idea about baking without breaking it

  10. Terracotta jewellery burst when i baked them:
    It’s not about the clay you use but how you have mixed it and the water content in the clay. Excess water content even if air dried can cause a bubble inside. This when heated turns into air. Hot air tends to expand and boom.. your hard work blows away. Make sure that the clay in mixed well and no water or bubble is left between layers of clay. This comes out of practice only.

    Paint to use:
    Acrylic paint, preferably pearl metallic finish.

    Hope these help some of you’ll.
