mold with color contamination

07 January 2013 - 10:37 PM


I am using plaster molds usually with white clay but would like to switch to red clay ones in a while,
how could I avoid contaminating the white clay in future works?

I assume washing the mold will take for ever to dry!
should I do another sets of molds? mmmmmmm...
some suggestions?

remove clay from plaster mold

12 December 2012 - 02:45 PM


I had made a big tile and it's plaster mold, I didn't take it off and the clay is almost dry
and do not know how to remove it, I wish not to hurt the plaster in the process, do you some suggestions?


dense slip for spikes

04 December 2012 - 09:19 PM


I want to be able to make spikes as large as possible by squeezing them with slip (I suppose dense could be nice).
I would like to do the slip from the clay (cone 04) I am using, I have darvan 811 and sodium Silicate (to reduce water content-shrinkage/crackings) but I don't know what quantity should I use, the formulas I find are for too big batches.

Is there some possibility to do about 2 pounds of slip?

kiln to use laid on the side

04 September 2012 - 07:08 PM

I could put my hands on a bigger electrical kiln (inside 17"x 24") , but I need wider more than taller...

is it too crazy to use it laid on the side? Posted Image
may be with some external support for the walls and a fake floating floor...did anyone have done it?
