  1. Hi everyone! I am currently experimenting with additional material, added to casting slip such as: sand, (rice) grains, paper, etc. I was wondering if anyone has some experience with that or can reference some interesting sources or examples to study? For some reason I do not find a lot (or any) examples of people working with these types of mixed media. Any tip or idea would be helpful! Thank you and I am looking forward to the feedback. Seb

  3. While folks occasionally use newspaper as an internal support for hand built pieces at our community studio, a group has made a number of pieces, each about the size of a sub sandwich, built around densely wadded up newspaper held together with duct tape. The pieces have some holes in them, but there's not an easy way to remove the paper/tape forms before they're bisqued. How much paper is too much to safely burn out in a bisque without being harmful to the kiln, vent fan and other pieces in the bisque? It's a 10 cu L & L kiln with an EnviroVent. Thanks.
  4. Hi, I have been working on some old men busts, and I have a question about paper trapped in the head. I built a wooden armature for the work and made a paper ball to use as a mould for the inside of the head. After removing the armature and as much of the paper as I can there is still some paper trapped inside. I have let the head dry very completely, are there any concerns with firing in an electric kiln with some paper left in the head? The bust is not terribly large (9" or so), and I used 1 sheet of paper from a local flyer. I would estimate that I got about 50% of it out. I realize that I could have cut the top of the head open to fish out the paper and reattach, but I plan to Raku this and didn’t want the seam where I reattached to be a weak spot. Thoughts? Thanks ~Mal
  5. I'm using a technique where I apply contact paper stencils to create designs on my bisque before dipping into my cone 4-6 glaze. I've had really awesome results with this. My only issue has been that when I go to peel them off, no matter how quickly I try, chunks of glaze pull off around the edges leaving me less sharp lines. I've been using a damp sponge to wipe the glaze off of the paper and dampen the edges, but I still end up doing a lot of time consuming detail work with a paint brush. I'm toying with the idea of wiping the glaze off of the decal then leaving it in place to burn off in the firing (well ventilated, of course) I don't mind if the tiny bit of ash leaves some pattern on the unglazed bisque, but don't want it messing up glazed pieces in the kiln. Has anyone tired this or had similar experience?
