In Topic: Qotw: Are There Redundant Things In Your Studio?

06 December 2016 - 01:29 PM

A couple of formica slabs with wire frames for small sculpture, magazines, 5 gal buckets and a small satellite dish that I was going to use as a hump mold someday.  These have accumulated since I moved my studio ten years ago.  Denice

Marc I haven't heard of LED fluorescent bulbs, do you need to change fixtures and do you have a choice of soft white, warm white or cool white?  Most of the lights in our house our LED, we have been looking around for exterior LED flood lights but the few we have found were pricey.    Denice


In Topic: Inconsistent Clay?

If your clay has gotten to stiff there is a easy fix.  Put a half cup of water in the bag, if it is really hard you may have to poke a few holes.  Immerse it totally in a five gal bucket of water and let it set for a few days and then check it and see if it is soft enough for you.  I would much rather get clay that is to hard than soft, messing with sloppy clay on plaster slabs is a lot more work.   Denice


In Topic: Bisque Ware History

It depends on far back you want to go, they have found bisque figurines of women in Mound Villages from 3500 BC.   The theory is that they worshiped women because they produced life (babies).  Part of the worship was to make these figurines and throw them into the fire.  Denice

I agree with you Mark, when I had my wallpaper store, they would come in and search until they found something they could write you up on.  It may have been okay with the last inspector but they weren't satisfied.   Denice
