  1. Is wood a good material to make molds because i have three that i sometimes use for hexagonal plate forms and would like to use more, if not then what can i put on the wood to keep clay from sticking or something?
  2. I just mixed a bunch of colored slips for the studio using trimmings from Laguna #65. I left the studio for 2 weeks and I come back and all the slips I mixed have turned black and smell something fierce. How can I fix or prevent this for next time cause I definitely just burned $20 of mason stain. Would a vinegar ratio have killed bacteria growth? Should I not have used trimmings and just mixed a clay base?
  3. I just finished my senior year of high school, and I had done a lot of experimenting with slip casting at home (we didnt have the resources/time to do it at school). I kept my used slip in a few empty plastic coffee containers, and my fresh stuff in a large square plastic container. I hadnt been able to use my slip for about a month, but when i went to check on it there’s green stuff floating all around in it, which I think is mold. It’s a stoneware clay, and I kept my container out side, with a bag covering it, because I dont think the lid has an air tight seal on it. What should I do w
  4. Hi there! So my question is very basic but I just want to know the best way to fix a plaster mold that has broken. I have used in weld to fix all my broken ceramics and it has worked beautifully, but I wasn’t sure if it would work on plaster? Another thing I was going to try was to use plaster to glue it back on, but wasn’t sure if that would work either so just wanted to ask for some advice first. Thanks! Nate
  5. It has been a long time since I have done anything with molds as I am mainly a wheel thrower. I have a plaster fruit bowl mold (hump mold over a year old but have never used it before until now) and my clay won't release from it and I'm scared that if I don't take it off soon that it will crack (its been on the mold for almost a full day uncovered). I can't get it off, what should I do? And how do you keep your clay from sticking to your plaster molds?
