  1. Plastic from flower shops works the same as dry cleaner bags. joy
  2. The wallpaper becomes an easily removable bat & no it doesn’t have to be rough I use smooth wallpaper some times it has a slight raised pattern like the marks on cloth. I slide it off the bat or wheel head after wiring off under the wallpaper. Once the pot is firm enough to flip you peel the wallpaper off the bottom. joy
  3. I’ve used wallpaper on my bats for years. You cut out circles the size you wish attach them to bats with water or slip. To remove you run your wire between bat & wallpaper to remove once the piece is firm enough you peel off the wallpaper. I pick up wallpaper ends from garage sales or wherever you can get it cheap. It can also be reused. Joy
  4. Hi, I just bought a digital scale after 40+ yrs. with a balance beam. I just add my ingredients till the readout is at my goal. joy
  5. I had a good look after they came out of the kiln, I previously said they were a D but on inspection they’re really ears joy
  6. My handles are wide D. I don’t backfill I use enough slip that it pools around the attached points. I wipe off excess. I occasionally put a thumb hold. Joy
  7. Why not slide in a piece for cement board the size of the table for a wedge board. My husband screwed an L shaped joined to hold it in place.
  8. I clean after throwing to keep the dust down. If I sweep or rather drag the broom, I have a spray bottle in my hand to also keep the dust down I empty the trimming & clean up the floor after trimming, so I keep the studio as free from dust as I can. The studio is a small room in the basement. My sink & glaze area is in the furnace/laundry/hallway to the studio so any drips get wiped up immediately to keep my pup from licking them. I keep the studio washed up better than the rest of the house. I do clean the rest once in a while. Joy
  9. I cut out stencils from thick tablecloth vinyl & use iron oxide to stamp. I use a tub with folded jersey cloth for a pad to keep the amounts of oxide just right for a stamping foam brush the pad allows the oxide to fill the stamping tool but not too much. I stamp on top of a glazes as control of the oxide is essential, too little & the stamp fires faded too much & it is dark & messy. I periodically add water with a small squirt bottle for moisture. joy
  10. In the process of glazing my honeypots.

  11. I started with classes &books with weekend workshops &more of the same. Then experimenting . joy
  12. Depending on your humidity with a dry bat a pot should be loose within a day, I normally cover the piece with plastic. joy
  13. Did your plaster bats have time to dry before being used? I’ve only used regular plaster from the hardware store for bats & never had that issue but I made a Mold with potters plaster & had problems waiting for the poured clay to pull off. It seemed the plaster had trouble absorbing enough of the moisture. Make sure when using plaster you don’t put any down the drain. joy
