Some in our community studio spray a glazed piece with hair spray then add the additional glaze by dipping.  I haven't tried it but have been told it works.

In Topic: My Angelbun's Urn

Awww, Guinea, so sorry for your loss.  Our fur babies give us so much joy then sorrow when they leave us.  I made an urn two years ago for my then 20 year old cat, who, btw, is still with me.  At the time, I had no idea how big the urn should be, but this discussion has set my mind at ease.  Her ashes will fit.  I plan to silicone the lid in place.  But I really like your idea of a sculpture and your painting skill will make a beautiful resting place for your fur baby.  Hugs,  Florence

I'd like to tell you about The Mighty Mat that I purchased last spring.  (It is a cleaned up printers blanket.)  I use this item every time I touch clay.  It is easy to clean, sharp tools won't cut it, the cloth side is perfect to roll clay on (with no texture) and I can (finally) roll a beautiful, even coil using the blue side.  Check it out at www.themightymat.com  Considering what we pay for clay "tools", this purchase is worth every cent.  BTW, the seller is trustworthy.  He FedExed the order as soon as he received my check and didn't cash my check until I let him know that I had received the order.  If you would prefer to use a brick and mortar store, contact Atlanta Clay.

Irene:  If I could do what you can do, I wouldn't give it away either!  Love your work, both the pots and the photos. FW
