I like Laura's way of doing this. Much the same as I would have done it. You just pour in the dry to the wet until it "looks right". Look for the mountain in the middle, the plaster will start to mound up when you have the right amount. We didn't measure the ingredients, but I'm sure you could google this process and do it all technical. I like this way. One of the reasons I know nothing about making plaster molds is because I always heard how you have to have everything just so and how fussy it is. This was way simple and I plan to make myself a new wedging block tomorrow. Easy peasy....
Some potters out there may be laughing at this, but hey, it worked. Laura and I both do things that may not be the way "they say" to do them, but we seem to work it out. I don't make or use terra sig like any of the ways I have read online to do it, but I get great results! I don't fire raku the "right" way, but it works for me. You just try things, make mistakes and figure out what works for you.
I don't know about you but I learn best when I watch and participate. I hardly ever learn something by just reading so this was perfect. I feel confident enough to mix up some plaster and make some molds. Now everything I see is going to be mold potential!
Thanks Laura for your patience and endless generosity. You ROCK! I had a great time, hope you have a great time in Vermont!!!!!! xo
