Sorry but it's been a little crazy around here and my pottery is suffering for it. I got into the studio on Mother's Day. That's 2 weeks without a mud fix! I don't know if I can manage much longer without some therapy. (heavy sigh, drumming fingers anxiously)
Our used car lot will be opening June 1 and we still don't have our dealers license. It's no wonder our country can't get it's head out of it's butt when the amount of paper (in our "paperless" society) we have to slog through to get the simplest things done (like an address change) creates such a mire that I just want to drive to Trenton and bang on someones head. Sorry but it's making me a little crazy. 8D
Deep breath. Back to some mental therapy, if not actual therapy.
|The edges are pulling up. Time to flip it.|
Depending on the humidity this step can take any where from one to three days. This stage needs to be monitored closely or you'll end up RE-reclaiming if it gets too dry.
When the edges of the slab start pulling up from the board it's time to flip it over and dry it a little more. I use a large plastic dry wall knife to help pry it off the board.
When the texture is like new clay it's ready for wedging and maybe a little Happy Dance!
Now, get reclaiming! I feel better just writing about it!
Me? I'm off to paint the sign for the new shop. Stay tuned for some great before and after photos. =D
