Day- i use the dry wall method no newspaper, I'm surprised you get dry wall "soaking wet". I'm new to tiles but after tile was sandwiched between dry wall, which was sandwiched between, two ware boards, covered with plastic, then weight places on top,
I've had a slab built plate warp a little but in this case you can't sandwich dry. I've read slow,even and weighted drying is king.
I'd like to see photos of your process, I'm interested in your technique , and the going ons of a production potter, also how do you bisque and final fire? Racks, one shelf per tile......?
Old lady, - I have access to roller, until recent I've only used roller, I like revisiting primitive ways, I also feel the the pounding, hands on work puts more "soul" in the work.
If I write some thing more than a sentence or 2 I usually use a word processing program then cut and paste.... I hate losing my posts....-
I'm still interested in what technically is different between rolling and pounding. And if there are tests break stregnth, warping, slumping, cracking...etc
I'm loosely hypothesizing that pounding is better because of increased density.
