  1. Hello I only work with bone china if any one wants any info on this please just ask and I will do my best to answer any questions if you have any that is, I am fascinated by all the other clays but with only a small studio we cant have any contamination, the main items we make are horses and lampshade but have made all sorts of other items both large and small all of course are slip cast.
  2. Thanks LinR I have just received a selection of scalpel blades they do make a huge difference in a good way now to get on with cutting out
  3. Thank you Ron that sounds like a great idea I will try this out
  4. Hi I am trying to refine the pieces all the pieces I have done so far are free-form not sure how to mark up the vases with the designs i would like
  5. Thank you every one for you comments I am putting a picture of the pots I have made so far I just want to take them up another level and make the cut outs smaller and closer together. I probably need more practice but i am so impatient !!!!
  6. Thanks Johnny for your comments, yes I do make my own moulds so this is a possibility but I prefer to do one offs I will try and post a picture of what I have so far.
  7. Thank you Mark for you reply, I will try and be patient and hope for some help, I am off now to look at some of the videos you mention
  8. Hi everyone this is my first post on this forum, I work only with bone china and whilst I have done a fair amount of reticulation ( cutting shapes out to create patterns) I am never 100% happy with the results, I am working on slip cast shapes which I like to be fine and I would like to ask if you have any tips to give.Main point I have trouble with is how to mark up for accurate designs on curvey shapes also what have you found to be the best type of blade/knife to use. Thank you I look forward to hearing from you
