    Hi Karen,  thank you for your hints and tips..i used grog on my shelves for the first time and no cracks in my hearts  yay!!  I am now trying paperclay, rather than the porcelain that i have been using as someone suggested that it maybe more suited to my flat pieces.  I have some more hearts drying so yet to see what they will do in the first firing.

     That sounds like a good idea Jo. Let us know how it works.

    Hi Benzine,  wow there are helpful people on this site , this is the first time that i have asked a question and am so thankful that people are happy to offer advise.  I did change the shape of the heart so there is a softer angle at the top and not a sharp 'V' but some of them still crack.  I am handcutting them so is this the problem??  should i lift them off the shelf with stilts, i am just worried about sagging tho.
