i have tried lots of things.  the tiny bottles are the worst, they dry out so fast.  i used to put the glass jars upside down so the air did not get into the jars.  then i tried upside down in water that was deeper than the screw on threads.  the water was a pain and evaporated when i wasn't looking.  


hope someone has an answer.

paul, think it over and decide what you like best.  i really wish i could use my paasche setup.  the closest class is in north carolina, and that is general art, not ceramic glazes.  


unless Mug would be willing to travel or let me travel, i do not even know how to set up the darned thing.

In Topic: Is Low Fire Clay Easier To Hand Build With?

the other problem could be that you are folding the clay when it is too thick.  how thick is your slab?  how dry is it when you are ready to fold it?  have you left it sitting while working on something else for "just a minute"?   


it takes a while to figure out this stuff.  try several thicknesses to achieve what you want as far as shape and see which will give enough to fold without tearing or be too thick to fold at all.
