Hello

I had made a big tile and it's plaster mold, I didn't take it off and the clay is almost dry
and do not know how to remove it, I wish not to hurt the plaster in the process, do you some suggestions?

THANKS!

Try spraying the clay with water to soften it up again, pull it off and start over.

yeah, you can soften the clay up a bit and try to remove - but you'll have to dry it out longer to cure the mold before using. i recommend trying to use an air hose if you have access to air compressor - stream your air between the clay and plaster to try to release w/o damaging the plaster with tools. you can also use a damp sponge to remove clay from your plaster.
