  1. Thank you :-) I will definitely give it a try.
  2. Sorry! Second try: https://plus.google.com/photos/105986140884627662888/albums/6015860281687582801?authkey=CMrP6ozPq9K1tgE
  3. https://plus.google.com/u/0/photos/yourphotos?cfem=1&pid=6015860280821918930&oid=105986140884627662888 This is a google link to a photo of my vase. Somehow I can´t get my photos small enough for attachment, sorry. The foot is an oval with sharp ends. It´s the short sides that roll up like a leaf....about 1 mm on each side. Just enough to make it wobble....
  4. Good idea. Hadn't thought of that one .Will definitely try. Thank you :-)
  5. I would like to post a photo on this page. is it possible?
  6. Hi! I do rotate while rolling out, but perhaps I need to rotate more. Will try.... The base is always flat, no foot ring. The foot is quite small for the vase so I´m not sure a foot ring would be a good idea. I have built these vases before ands never had a problem. That´s what irritates me - I just can´t explain it. The clay is the same, method of working is the same.... Thanks for your suggestions :-))
  7. Hallo! I am having a problem with warping bases in my paper clay vases. I use paper clay slabs to build my vases. I dry my vases slowly, covering the body and the top of the vase with a plastic bag. After a few days of drying, I find that the foot has warped and my vase wobbles. Someone suggested that I place the vase on a piece of plaster so that the moisture can be absorbed from the foot, which tends to dry slower than the rest. This didn´t help - it warps either way! I can often save my vase by sandpapering the base carefully, (yes, I know, the dust) however when I do the bisque firing, the base warps again! I fire to 960° C (100°C per hour). Does anyone have suggestions? I really don´t know what else to try out.... Regards, Lizzy
