In Topic: Qotw: How About Learn From Each Other’S Mistakes?

Yesterday, 12:45 PM

I finally figured out that the biggest mistakes were made when I didn't listen to my gut instincts and let other people influence my decision.  The last time I didn't listen to my gut,  my decision could have sent me into bankruptcy.  Another twist of events save me but it sure made me realize how other people could influence me.  I listen to myself first and others second now.     Denice

I have two kilns that I switch back and forth on the same outlet,  for some reason I check everything else before I check the outlet to see why a kiln isn't working. Denice

In Topic: What Clay To Use For Mold Making

I agree a extremely difficult piece to make a mold, some of the undercuts you could fill in and then come back and cut them out by hand. That would help but it still would be a complicated mold.     Denice

In Topic: Ceramic Sculpture?

I did portraiture sculpture for 10 years, I was self taught and then joined a local sculpture group/class.  I was doing the portraits at home, life size from the waist up.  The original was in clay an then I would cover it with a layer of colored plaster and the white plaster on top until it was several inches thick.  I would dig out the clay, put a separator in it and pour plaster in it. Then you chip the outer plaster off until you hit the colored plaster and gently take it off.  The class I joined did smaller work just in clay so I learned new techniques there.  I think you will enjoy the class.       Denice
