I just got my copy!   However I won't have time to read it until after Christmas!  But it looks so thorough!   Money well spent!

Rebekah, I like the look of your steins.  I also agree on the stencil on the side, it is a great addition.   Is it stamped on?   I bet they will sell well!

Ok, TJR's candle holder bowls are AMAZING!   I do really like them!  

 

If you live in a dry climate, you will find need of a Brown Sugar Saver.   I was at a sale last week and sold a bunch of them!  I use a red clay and simply bisque fire it.  Make them with a cookie cutter and impress a pattern in them.

It Worked!! Ta Da!!  I had a smidge of paper clay, so I used that, rebisqued and glazed.  It came through with flying colors.  Or rather it stuck to its guns!  I really was pleased. Thanks to everyone for the help.

I was taught to compress using the "short side of a wooden rib" .   The last year I have been using the little yellow Sherrill rib.   And more Bee Mix.  So my current research is going back to the wooden rib to see if that makes a difference with the cracking.  Like I said, this really is a new issue for me.  I cannot imagine that the type of rib would be the problem, but that's what I am trying.  No, I don't use a lot of water. Mostly slip.  And my apologies to Old Lady!  It is a good question, because I know what you mean about watching some of the potters on you tube.  Lots and lots of water!   And I apologize for high jacking the thread!!  :D
