In Topic: Do You Touch Things In Museums?

17 April 2015 - 10:00 PM

At a Monet exhibition, nose 3cm off the painting surface peering at the use of brushstrokes reflected in the directional lighting.

Became aware of someone standing very close to my right side, turned to face a guard looking at me.

No words,gave him a look that said 'but I wasn't touching it' and went back to my myopic peering.

No words, he left when I did.

Hi lala

 

take a look at the following forum post (my request from few months ago) and look at the recipie for ceramic tape casting from Alfred university......uses PVA glue into porcelain slip to get 1mm thin sheets. A commercial product called Keraflex is made this way but shockingly expensive so some clever, clever people worked out how to make similar

In Topic: Creating A Ice White Porcelain Clay Body

LeeU, SI is 'Southern Ice' a very white porcelain made as  C10 or as 'Cool Ice' at C6.

 

Antoinette,  I have used a bonechina not-very-plastic body for it's ultra-whiteness. vile for throwing and damn sensitive in firing but slipcast or smaller sculptures were just magical! in their stark alabaster whiteness.  I'm in Australia and it's available as a special order slip but I have the'plastic' body made specially for me every now and again,  so beautiful, so expensive! - I use it for jewellery and treat it like gold.  Have you tried bonechina?
