The rules posted above state that only one image be attached to an entry.  Sometimes my work has four sides, each decorated totally different.  So one image wouldn't really show the decoration for the entire piece.  I could possibly photograph it at an angle to show two sides in one photograph, but the other side couldn't be shown. Is there anyone else out there that might have this same problem? (Well, not really a problem, but you know what I mean  :rolleyes: )  

 I have removed the rule about one image, the reason it was there is because having 5 images per entry to take across to a results thread would be time consuming and each post I can only link 5 picture onto. I will still take one pictures into the final entry thread unless I feel two is really needed. If you want every picture in then do a composite of all pictures into one.

 

Thanks!  Now why didn't I think of combining the pictures of all sides into one in the first place????

A friend once told me that she keeps what she considers the best piece out of a firing …. at least until another piece comes out that she likes better.  That's the way she gauges her progress.  When she selects a 'better piece', she may sell the previous one.  I've kind of adopted that idea, however, I haven't yet let go of a few pieces that I know I'll never recreate.

Lately. I have been using both to look into using a die/stencil cutter controlled by the computer. I like to work with illustrator of Corel Draw to create images, but do not have the patience to cut the intricacies of these by hand. One of these die cutters may be the solution, as I want to make multi layered slab texture sheets for some upcoming projects.

 

I have been finding a lot of help here.

Pres….I attended a workshop not long ago on using a die/stencil computer controlled cutter.  We cut the stencils out of Tyvek.  I'll have to say, we had more stencils ruined than we had successes.  If the settings weren't perfect, or the pattern wasn't created properly, it was a failure.  My reason for taking the workshop was so I could create stencils myself.  After the workshop, I decided to try to find them on-line instead of investing in the cutter, the Tyvek rolls, the blades (which dulled fairly quickly), etc.  I found a site and ordered a couple of stencils…..excellent quality and they were only $5-$6 each I think, which I thought was very reasonable.  They will also cut custom stencils - don't know the price for this though.
