  2. Hello, I have a figurative sculpture piece in a cone 5 white stoneware that I made poor Iron Oxide choice on.

  3. Hello, I'm no artist or sculptor but a classics graduate with a passion for Classical art and sculpture.

Can anyone foresee any issues with gluing sandpaper to wooden bats, securing them to the wheel and using them to sand pieces? Cheers!
