Slip Trailing

22 August 2016 - 09:52 AM

I'm trying to refine my skills at slip trailing and struggling. I'm having trouble getting slip to squirt in a smooth flowing manner, sometimes on top of one another and with feathering.

Mixing it thin and putting lots of Epson salts in it to flocculate helps a great deal but I can't get it to flow like I see in these two videos.

Do you have any suggestions?

 

Are there some additives that would improve the flow?

Sharpening Loop Trimming Tools

08 June 2016 - 10:06 PM

I have an over supply of dull loop trimming tools. I have previously used a small diamond impregnated metal sharpening tool. This is very slow and laborious, particularly on the non straight tools. Has anyone come up with an easier way to sharpen these gadgets?

What That System With The Removable Center Section Do You Like

02 May 2016 - 04:20 PM

it's time to buy more bats. 

 

Does anyone have any experience with the bat systems that have a removable square section in the middle? I've seen some that people have made by just cutting a square out of a regular plastic bat the size of a 12 inch ceramic tile.  Does that work well? What other approaches have you seen, tried,  bought?

 

What are the pros and cons on these bats?
