Default Question about firing doilies in an electric kiln

I would LOVE to try this. I would do it with white clay body slip instead. But since the kiln is a community facility, I want to be sure it's totally safe to fire the slip covered doily in the kiln with other items. Does the doily smoke as the temp builds or does it just vaporize? Any advice or guidance would be appreciated!

We never done such a thing but couple years ago we had customer that did something like that . She had us make doilies from cotton thread #3 then she would dip them in liquid porcelain, shaped them in shape of bowls and bake them in kiln. And it work fine. I have pictures on my another computer i will post them up. Important part for her was that doilies are made out of cotton thread not smaller then size #3. Hope that helps.

You could try liquid polymer clay. This clay can be cured in a oven. Just cover the daily with the liquid clay it can be brush/painted on. you could color the liquid clay, with mica powders, paint , even add glitter can be added to the liquid clay. You would need to place the doilly over a bowl of some form to hold the the shape while It is baking. Be sure to put it inside an cover baking pan. I use the aluminum ones you can throwaway the best part is the doily will not be destroyed in the baking as polymer clay is baked at 275. You could also do this with paper.
