Here's how it works: You order the kiln from me. I call Paragon immediately and have them send the kiln to you. Normally, it takes about three to four weeks for them to manufacture and ship the kiln to you. Sometimes, as with holiday mailings, it may take longer. Most of the time, my customers receive their order sooner than expected, usually within two weeks, but not guaranteed, of course.
NOTE - If the package is damaged, take a photo of the box damage and save the package in case the kiln inside is damaged and must be returned.

The heat of the kiln is magical and offers wonderful surprises. Stained glass, enamels, and ceramic glazes undergo a complete transformation in the kiln. You will never outgrow the joy of opening a kiln to view your treasures. Try screen printing on glass, glass decals, painting with frit and stringers, glass pendants, dichroic glass . . . the list goes on and on.

The digital SC-2 kiln fires china paint, enameling, and glass in minutes. Fire up to 2000°F. The SC-2 is popular with seminar teachers because it fires fast, plugs into a STANDARD HOUSEHOLD OUTLET, ships by UPS. The SC-2 is popular in art centers, colleges, craft classes, engineering laboratories, and for hobbyists. It costs less then 20 cents an hour to operate!

Easy to Fire

The SC-2 can hold three shelves of silver clay yet is portable enough to take with you to classes. Program the firing schedule that is perfect for your projects. You are not stuck with preset programs. The programmer turns itself off after the firing is completed. (Please note, however, that you should be near the kiln at the expected shutoff time.) the SC-2 is great in classrooms because the elements are embedded in ceramic fiber.

Even Heat Distribution

The current SC-2 kiln has two separate heating elements in the left and right sides of the firing chamber. Extensive testing shows that the heat distribution in the new SC-2 is more even throughout the firing chamber, because heat does not build up in the back of the kiln.

Affordable, Easy to Program

The SC-2, for a digital kiln, is surprisingly affordable and it is MADE IN AMERICA! It fires automatically at the rate and temperature you enter. A large, brightly lit display prompts for firing rate, temperature, and hold time. Use the hold feature to automatically soak any type of clay silver to its recommended time.

The ceramic fiber firing chamber is wrapped in a steel inner case. The outer steel case remains cool due to the layer of air between it and the inner case. In addition, the case is slotted for air circulation. Electrical components, located in the base, stay cool even at extended hold times.

The fast firing element is embedded in the firing chamber shell. Each SC-2 includes a 1/4” thick ceramic fiber shelf.

2 X 2 inch Glass View Port

Watch the bright red kiln interior through the SC-2’s 2” x 2” glass view port. (Note: always wear green #3 firing safety glasses when viewing the kiln interior.) The glass view port is guaranteed up to 2300°F.

The view port is especially useful for glass fusing and copper enameling. Watch the glass or enameling progress through every stage of firing to the precise stage you desire.

Handy Quick Start Guide to place near your kiln as a handy reference
The SC-2 will ship by UPS for lower shipping cost and faster service. Specially designed cartons and foam padding assure that the kiln will arrive safely.


I would recommend that before you receive the kiln, you watch on YouTube “How to program a Paragon SC2 kiln.” The instruction book can seem overwhelming, but the video will help considerably! After the kiln arrives, watch the video again as you program the kiln.

Paragon Industries has a wealth of information on their website, also.

The kiln should be set up as close to eye-level as possible on a stable surface. It should be 6 – 12 inches away from flammable surfaces on the front, sides, and back. The outside of the kiln does not get extremely hot, however. I like to have several large (15x15) floor tiles under and beside my kiln. In my kiln set-up, I have the kiln sitting on a 15x15” tile with two others to the right of it to set hot screens, trivets, etc. A pair of large (10 – 12”) tweezers come in handy, too. I keep my firing fork on top of the kiln. Also, a digital timer is nice to have on hand beside the kiln.

If your floor in front of the kiln is flammable (like carpet) or likely to be damaged by hot metal dropping on it (like wood or linoleum), I recommend putting a few floor tiles or a welder’s spark blanket (from Harbor Freight, for example). If you use the spark blanket, I would tape it down securely. I have also used Harbor Freight’s floor mats.

You will have four digital programs that you can pre-set on your kiln. For enameling, I like to set one program for 1550 degrees for regular enameling and another program for 1350 for liquid enamels, Sgraffito, wet packing, and other lower temperature processes.

It is exactly what I wanted and was shipped and arrived when scheduled.

Great price and speedy communication. Shipping took a little longer due to the holidays but it wasn't bad. For the size and value of my purchase, it would have been nice to proactively receive tracking details to be aware of shipping / delivery.

SPECIAL NOTE ABOUT SHIPPING DIRECTLY FROM THOMPSON IN KENTUCKY - I try to carry the most commonly ordered Thompson products & enamels in my stock, but it is impossible to carry everything they sell. IF an order includes items that I do not list that need to be shipped directly from Thompson, customers may experience a one to two week delay in receiving their orders due to backlogs at the Kentucky facility. Items I carry in my shop are processed immediately and shipped M - F within 24 hours. Shipping from Thompson is usually more expensive than from Enamel Warehouse. They ship UPS. Enamel Warehouse ships USPS and will choose the cheapest shipping method such as USPS flat rate. We always refund excess shipping charges!
