I've had a student interested in trying this technique, ever since I showed him examples of the process a year or two ago.
I first came across the process on this site.
I experimented a little, but my results have not been great. I am using cotton yarn, as directed. I've experimented with the yarn knitted and unaltered.
I've done multiple dips into the slip, with wringing and drying in between.
The resulting pieces are always extremely fragile. Not just fragile because of how thin they are, but because there is a lot of gaps from where the yarn burnt out.
Do I need more layers of slip?
Is it supposed to be a deflocculated slip?
The author of the article on this site, is using porcelain. We will not be. It will be a low fire white clay. So it wouldn't be nearly as vitrified. Is this the issue?
Any help would be appreciated.
