y'all -

So yesterday, I fired up my little paragon sc2 to do some enameling, and I put in a sheet of kiln shelf paper to keep my kiln shelf clean. It came rolled up, and so it still had some curve to the sheet, but I figured it wuold flatten itself out, b/c it did the last time I fired my kiln (Its new, and I've only used it twice).

Well.

I was working with a friend who has more kiln experience than I do, and when we got up to annealing temperature, she opened up the door, and the shelf paper came flying out in a cloud of dust and fire!! We were both mighty freaked out. It seems the paper had rolled up against teh door of the kiln but we are not sure why it would have caught on fire like that!

What on earth happened and what can i do to prevent that?? I'm thinking kiln shelf wash might be the safer way to go...

I haven't had this problem....but oh my!!

Did you have the curved side of the kiln paper up or down?  I use kiln wash and kiln paper on my shelf.  My pieces are curved sometimes, but, I put the bump up and the glass helps to hold it down and straighten it out.

Hope you had a fire extinguisher handy....
