  1. Thank you so much everyone for all the help! I tried making the mold of the cone without anything on it and it turned into a hot gooey mess! While it wasn't very much fun trying to clean up the melted cone parts.... it smelled delicious. Luckily the second time around I sprayed a couple coats of lacquer on and filled it with clay and it held up perfectly! Also this is the cone I made the 2 part mold for! https://www.joycone.com/sites/default/files/products/thumbs/Products_400x340_CakeCups_0.png
  2. I have been wanting to make a plaster mold of an ice cream cone but am worried that it will get soggy and fall apart. Does anyone have any tips or advice?
  3. Thought I'd post another update. I've been experimenting a lot and here is a small batch of some of the items I've made lately. They are bisque fired then painted with underglaze and are now ready to be fired! Also a picture of a larger piece I crocheted that is finished!
  4. Just a little update... my two test pieces are completely finished now and I'm very happy with how they came out! I've started working on some bigger crocheted items and so far so good! but here's some pictures of my two finished pieces.
  5. It has only been bisque fired so far. It's being loaded in the kiln to be fired to cone 6 today.
  6. So I pulled two of my pieces out of the kiln today and they turned out awesome! Thank you everyone for all the advice. Here are pictures of my pieces glazed and ready to be fired.
  7. Heres a picture of two of the pieces I dipped the other day!
  8. Thank you! I used a casting slip and will be taking out of the bisque firing tomorrow so I will post pictures on how it went! I would love to see pictures of some of your stuff!
  9. Awesome thank you so much. Are you using cotton yarn? I crocheted a bunch of different items that I plan on testing out tomorrow so I will be able to post an update on them later this week. Also I would love to see pictures of some of your work
  10. I've seen pictures of dolls like that! They are so amazing. : )
  11. Thank you Jolie! I've been taking ceramic classes for about 2 years now so I'm not a beginner, I just haven't worked with slip much in this way. I've made a bunch of test crochet squares and have some slip made up in the classroom so I will be testing them out this week. Will post pictures on how the process goes! Thank you for all of the information it made me feel a lot more confident about giving it a try!
  12. I recently saw this post and fell in love! http://ceramicartsdaily.org/ceramic-art-and-artists/ceramic-sculpture/making-delicate-porcelain-sculpture-with-porcelain-slip-and-flaxed-paper-clay/ I am interested in combining crochet with slip but have no idea where to even start or what the best way to do it is. I would appreciate any advice!
