In Topic: Rims On Slump Or Hump Molds

Glad to know about the rounding tool. I think I will try the rolled method also. I know everyone has to kind of find their own way, but I do not like wimpy rims, which mine seem to be. Alabama,by "wide" rims are you saying you extend the rim beyond the mold them trim later?

I tried again with a coil at the top outside of the bowl shape, (with the hump form still inside, and everything upside down,) I ribbed to blend into the body of the bowl. When it firmed up a bit, I took out the hump form and turned right side up. Then I had to add a tiny coil to fill in between original rim and coil addition. A lot of work...........but it actually turned out better than when I tried to add the coil to top rather than side of the rim. Where do you add your coil and at what point in the process? Thanks :) I am more of a wheel person, learning backwards.......

Just to clarify, I mean rims on the items I make from slump or hump molds, not rims on the molds themselves :)

I have used it for pot bottoms, the only problem is that you might inadvertently get it in the wrong place ......otherwise works great
