  2. How do I get the appearance of cork on the surface of slabs? I've seen it done, tried a number of things, and nothing seems to work.

  6. Okay, I have a decision to make. I've always felt that bowls for actual use are often best at displaying food if the interior of the bowl is white. On the other hand, decorating the exterior of a shallow soup bowl means that no one will see the decoration without taking the time to pick up the piece. So I've almost always decided in favor of decorated interiors. I still feel that the interiors of large shallow bowls make the best canvas for decorative surface treatments, but now I'm trying to decide if I should change my ways and make my smaller bowls with white interiors and decora

  8. Hi guys, I'm looking for anything that I can add to my porcelain slip (cone 10) that will result in a fine surface texture. This could be fairly uniform almost sandpaper-y, to just varied and rough.

Any thoughts would be great!

Is this generally frowned upon? The bisque doesnt leak water as such but it kind of bleeds through a little in spot
