Patterns on clay....how do you keep them there?
Posted 09 January 2013 - 01:05 PM
This seems pretty basic - the only thing I can think of is that my texture isn't deep enough, but it would still get messed up by having to use a sponge to sponge over it. I was making a wall vase yesterday and the bottom side of my clay started to crack a little, I thought it was still pretty wet, but obviously to smooth those out...out went the texture!
Any suggestions would be appreciated - I haven't don't much with textures!

Your texture might be too shallow but there is a lot of work made with light textures ... you just might need to slow down and really pay attention to your whole joining process.

Support your local library.
They have tons of info they bought so you can access it for free.
I have very limited income, so I like to take books out and see if they are something I'd want to refer back to before I buy them.

Making Pottery Without a Wheel; texture and form in clay [by] F. Carlton Ball and Janice Lovoos, Publisher:Reinhold, New York 
This book concentrates on using textures for hand building clay forms. It is an older book but the information is timeless.
For all of the members of CAD who objected and complained about my signature of John 3:16, thus forbidding me to post on this forum, this season which represents the birth of the Son of God, and which allows you to make so much income from your craft of pottery. So many of you wait for this time of year, you prepare for it for months, and some wishing your sales could be this way all year, because this season can carry you through for the whole year. Here is what it is all about-
"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish but have everlasting life".
