I don't know if this is common knowledge or not, but you can buy t-shirt material (called jersey) at fabric shops cut out a circle to fit into the quilting hoop. It is so stretchy that when you put a slab of clay in it, it forms a bowl shape.
Thanks for that: I've got a couple of sling moulds, (that's what I know them as) but I've never been entirely happy with the material I've used for the sling, I'll try and source some t-shirt material, (ayjaywanders off to find a fat person's washing line).
This forum does all sorts of of weird stuff ( I use several and this is by far the crankiest) but the last couple of days have been very bad.

The picture thing (I mentioned it elsewhere some while ago): I can often only look at one picture in a topic - if I want to look at a second one I have to sign out and sign back in again - and again for every subsequent picture.
