Vector Images

27 January 2016 - 03:07 PM

Does anyone know of easy to use free (or cheap) vector software? I'm looking for one where I can enlarge images for decals and cut a single (vector) image from a page of images and repeat it. I've tried Inkscape but even with the tutorials I had problems with it. I'm next to useless with this type of program so simpler would be better if anyone knows of one.

 

Thanks in advance for any help!

Liquid Latex

10 January 2016 - 11:48 PM

Anybody ever try using liquid latex body paint as a resist on bisque or glaze? I noticed they sell it at Party City and it's a fair bit cheaper than the liquid latex I can get from our local Michaels Crafts. 


Handles

Hsin-Chuen Lin recently posted a youtube demo making handles. He says his method of attaching results in 99.9% success rate with no cracking. Love watching this guy work, thought I would share the link:

(my pottery supply place doesn't carry the ridged wood pieces but I bought smaller sized pieces from a cooking shop, sold as butter or gnocchi paddles, I think VanGilder sells something similar)


Primitive Build

20 October 2015 - 06:00 PM

The link below is for a film of a fellow who built a hut with a clay tile roof, mud and stone walls and underfloor heating. All done with handmade primitive tools and technology. I thought it was quite the feat he accomplished. This was posted a few days ago on Clayart, thought I would share the link for those that don't follow that site.
