  1. I'm new to the whole slip casting technique and trying to learn. I'm trying to source slip for slip casting and see a lot of places offer dry slip casting bodies, but what separates those bodies from normal dry clay you can buy? I understand you add chemicals, including a deflocculant, to the dry slip, but beyond that what's the difference and why couldn't you just do that to a normal dry clay body?

  2. My question is how does copyright impact slip casting? My grandmother past a way not to long ago and I now have many of her slip casting molds. Some of these molds have the manufacture name and copyright logo etc. I also know that these can also be purchased online. How does this process work?

The piece will be shaped like a balloon fully(ish) enclosing the bulb, but the walls would have to be quite thin and delicate to be translucent enough to work even as a muted lighting fixture without having to poke holes all over it. I was thinking the best way to achieve this is sculpting the balloon, making a mold, and slip casting. What are your thoughts/suggestions?
  5. From the album: Work in Progress

    This is a special pie plate made with two tones of casting slip. I then decorated it with leaves and swirling vines in slip and sgraffito carving on the inside.
