Made some more fish, faces and horses for firing.
Making ceramic jewellery pieces is easy and not as difficult as you may think
I constantly mix the slip between pours - I pump it into my flat molds and then I let them sit. when nearly dry I turn over the mold and they pop out - to speed up drying I put them on my teflon coated plug in flat grill - set at 100 F.
They will still need to sit and dry for the week but at least I can handle without fear of messing them up or sticking together. I also poured the top of a dip container (bottom is like a jar you put ice in and the top sits on top with the dip and it keeps it cold - great for the summer.
I'll do a step by step on making simple ceramic pieces for jewellery from using slip and malleable clay to firing shortly (using the paragon home hobby kiln)
