      Stacking, packing, building. Any others?

      I was surprised at the color of a straight dentin buildup. I recommend doing one of these in every shade.

      One thing I ALWAYS did...use clear, fire to find the magic maturity temp for a given porcelain, then use that as your firing temp. I don't step down with multiple firings. Next...fire a tab of each powder on a piece of platinum...not a pillow tray, and glue it to the top of its respective bottle.

      Thanks for all the replies. :) I've got plenty to learn, and I'm appreciative of the wisdom that gets passed to me. I'll see if I can call up one of our local labs and spend the time sitting next to the porcelain builders.

      I appreciate you all!

      I'm still debating whether to put "Chief Tooth Geek" or "High Muckety Muck" on my next set of cards.

      I hate the term " stacking porcelain ", makes me feel like I'm working in a warehouse. And I'm stacking pallets of consumables with a forklift. Not art, but probably pays better.

      They aren't going to let you into their little club if you keep snarking them.

      I always said building because that is the term my trainer used.

      what about "throwing it together" :). Sometimes my work comes out better that way than if I spend ages on it :)

      It all comes down to value and contrast, you master those and the rest will follow
