Some small (half pint) jugs made and fired recently do not pour at all well. They basically end up dribbling down the front, more than just a drip or two. Putting a smear of butter under the lip allows them to pour perfectly! Is there anything I can actually do to them (grinding away a bit of glaze?) to make them better? Obviously for future jugs I am going to have to adjust the design of the spout, and from what I've read, possibly the lip should end more horizontally (you'll see in my pictures that the spout is angled upwards somewhat). I shaped these with my little finger, pulled between thumb and forefinger of other hand. Any tips/advice gratefully received!
Hi there, this is my first post on this very helpful site. I can't seem to find much information anywhere about using rubber to make mold masters for recreating slipcast molds. I have been experimenting with making rubber masters of my molds (mostly 2 to 3 piece molds). But I find that whenever I pour a new mold from the master, they don't quite fit together as well as the original. I have experimented with a few different types of rubber, but am limited to products that don't need degassing. Is there any one particular product that is recommended for use in this situation? I've attached a couple of photos to show how I am constructing my masters. The blue handle mold was made using Smooth-on Oomoo 25 (which is very soft), and the light colored one was made using Polytek Polygel 35. Any little tips or tricks would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
