  1. Hi, I will follow your advice. Obviously it is better to start th topic again
  2. Hi Thanks for the literature . All there is on the subject. I see the conversation is from 2015...I will try nevertheless: On the video the men are first embedding the beads in a huge amount of something, that sure isn't glaze, and then they fire them. If Reeza could post her research... would be nice
  3. Hi, That is what I am trying to find out, but after quite a lot of reading, I did not become wiser (on this matter). I found a lot of recipes and how-to's about Egyptian paste, none about Egyptian glaze though. It is obvious : they used a glaze which produced a similar colour. This figure, for example, has not been modelled in Egyptian paste: https://www.metmuseum.org/art/collection/search/548310 nor this : https://www.louvre.fr/en/oeuvre-notices/chalice-form-lotus Has Has somebody tried this, or a similar glaze? I remember the colour of Achaemenid antiquities
  4. God bless the inventor of the baking spay! After procrastinating quite a while, I just scratched the foam a bit, with my fingernail.. The foam gets off, I will clean the rest with acetone. Of course, no mould is produced... Russ, I will definitely try again. Big lightweight moulds would be such a relief
  5. Hi, Thanks to you for the amazing work, it surpasses my imagination. Would it work on a Mac laptop? Something is happening with my mail, especially when I travel, I saw your emails, and then they disappeared , that is what I did not answer.
  6. Yes, impressive, and we come back to the "flipping big moulds" discussion lately. Did he flip with the board with two wheels you mentioned before? Pres, please explain, If I understand, the slab was covering the inside of the mould, how did he pull, pressing from the centre outward ? How did he work the clay back and forth?
  7. Hi Russ, The foam forms cavities, how do you avoid this? Do you compress the foam somehow ? Because if I do not manage to clean the foam from inside the glazed plate, I will try to make a hump mould.
  8. Hi liambesaw, Fire ? That is how - with a gas burner ? Yes, the platter is glazed. I will try acetone first and, well, report..:
  9. Hi, Unfortunately I didn't stick to your manual.. I sprayed backing spray on the glazed ceramic prototype, and it got stuck... Can the foam residues be somehow cleaned ?
  10. Hi Marc, What brand of porcelain did you use, and what was the diameter/thickness of the plates? Best, Leila
  11. Hi, It is a surprising idea. Would this foam mould need to be isolated? Foam looks a bit rough, will the mould be sleek, or does the spray leave some lines ? I have seen that foam spray forms cavities. What would you recommend as a release agent? I am right into the "big heavy mould" problem, for bowls with diameters like 46 cm. Cannot wait give it a try with a smaller bowl tomorrow!
  12. Hi Bill Kielb, Thanks for posting the graphics ! What program do you use ? I would like to acquire it too. Would be of great help .
  13. Hi oldlady, This is the beginnig of a song, written from Shakespeare. It ends with “ding, dong, bell, ding, dong, bell” - the sound in my head at midnight, the platter had to be finished and I was writing here in the forums instead
  14. Thanks a lot ! I will make an experiment and post it. The pieces I cut, I will knead and make pieces for glaze trials. I read everywhere about the use of cooking spray as mould release, and thought this problem has found its solution a long time ago... Have a nice day !
