In Topic: Trying To Find A Square Plate Mould

12 December 2014 - 02:24 PM

I'd just scour the thrift or dollar stores for a cheap plate of the size you're after and either use it as a slump mould as it is (easy if it's wooden) or make your own mould from it by laying a thick (1/2") slab of clay in it, trimming, drying and bisque firing at a low temp (so it remains absorbent). Use this as a hump mould. Slump/ hump all depends on the inner / outer profile of the original. Good luck!

I've recently bought a bag of alphabet pasta to press into greenware. It will burn out in the bisque fire, and I will then brush with stain/ underglaze and wipe back. I may do a second bisque fire to fix, so that I can dip without contaminating my glaze bucket. Otherwise I'll carefully brush the glaze over.
Have spent hours sorting the letters into a compartmentalised box so that I can find the letters when I need them - a bit tedious, but somehow therapeutic at the same time .

Thanks Old Lady - last one was a 'silver moment'. The one before was picking up part of High Bridge Pottery's post, but it somehow didn't indicate that. I'm obvious,y not doing it correctly.
