    You're not dealing with "drying" as much as absorption...once you've poured out the excess slip, depending on the wall thickness of your piece, it should release in about 30-45 minutes...leaving it right side up will help with drying the inside of the piece.

    That is what it looks like, it is suppose to throw better.   I remember potters putting beer in when they were mixing clay they thought it would mold faster.   Denice

    I bought clay a couple of days ago,  I thought I was out.  I looked at the companies web site and it wasn't listed,  freaked me out.   I had tried several clays  for throwing and this one worked the best for me. Turned out they had a new website and the web designer didn't include it.    When I was making space for the clay I found two bags that were covered with mold,  I bought it around Christmas.  Never had clay mold this fast,  using it first.   Denice

    terri, were you ever a weatherperson in florida???  their vocabulary list contains only two words,  "chilly" or "warm".  it is NEVER cold or hot.    i think your temp reading places you in the definitely instantly freezing category.

    Yeah, we were being all smug about being warmer than the Midwest, and now we just spent 2 days trying to get a friend's truck started. (No block heater.)

    We've had it good for about 10 years now with warmer winters but this used to be standard fare for the prairies. I still have the warm clothes minus a pair of wool pants that were a favorite- miss them Just think of all the pine beetle that will be toast!

    terrim8 reacted to Pres in been trying some mold making. Think I prefer the wheel.   
    Mold making for me is not as immediate as wheel throwing. I make lots of mugs, each a little different even thought they start with same amount of clay. Making all the same would be boring on the wheel, but mold making not so much if I could get through the first part to the second part. However, I am not really interested in going with all the slip casting process.
     
    best,
