Teresa Nunes posted a topic in Studio Operations and Making WorkHi everyone I am a currently teaching myself to work with porcelain. I am about to take a general ceramic course soon, but there are still a lot of specific techniques involved in making small ceramic pieces, that I want to learn. I am making necklace beads and earrings and I have a few questions regarding finishing techniques: - Do you sand or polish greenware, or just use a wet sponge or paint brush to smooth little rough areas? Some of my pieces are really small and have angles so I would need something kind of small, pointy to get to some of the corners. Any tools that you can recommend? The pieces are fairly smooth already, but there are some details on the surface that I would like to smooth, specially in the joins. Any jewellery/small piece makers out there that can give me some advice? Thanks!
Hi guys, Has anyone ever used a bat for the pottery wheel covered in sandpaper, to turn it into a circular sander? I would've thought it would ber very very common but I can only find one reference, and its for grinding the bottom of fired pieces, not to sand existing ones. Can anyone foresee any issues with gluing sandpaper to wooden bats, securing them to the wheel and using them to sand pieces? Cheers!
