In Topic: Facebook Page For Colored Clay

28 July 2014 - 02:27 PM

I think I have my settings to 'anyone can post comments or images' ... but so far no one has been able to.

Any facebook gurus know why???

I want anyone to be able to post images and comments.


** update ... now they can post comments but they show up on the bottom left hand side of the page where I didn't even know stuff was!


slippery slope time :unsure:

In Topic: What Is The Most Unconventional Item You Have Ever Used To Decorate Or Create...

I use my hot glue gun to make patterns on PVC pipes ... Instant roulette. Have rolled it into other loose materials like moss or sand while the glue was still soft to get even more texture.

I have not taken the course but Antoinette is a friend and we have talked a lot about the content and presentation. She is an excellent thrower and a very caring teacher.
You watch the classes live online, then you can access them as often as you want for ... I think ... Two months after the class is done. She also has a private Facebook page where students can get even more feedback and help.
For $159 ... I don't think you can beat it.

Oh my goodness! That is an industrial size recipe!
You can find many recipes that are smaller.

This is from the Ceramic Arts Daily link at the top left of this page ...

I want to make sure you are also aware of the Ceramic Arts Daily link at the top left on this forum. If you go there you will find a lot of throwing videos, articles and advice ... All free.

At this point in your throwing life you will get a lot of good feedback from posting images of your newly thrown work cut in half. People who throw can look at it and know what happened ... and tell you what you are doing right or wrong. The bare clay does not lie because there is nowhere to hide!

I never weigh clay so someone else will have to answer that. Not that you shouldn't weigh it ... Just that it is not in my nature to want to.
