Lately, I have been really interested in surface development and I have been having a great time experimenting in the studio. But, I would probably be more likely to take bigger risks if I didn’t labor over the forms as much as I do. So I have been thinking about doing a little slipcasting to minimize the preciousness of my forms and hopefully, get the surfaces to where I want them.
So, with slipcasting on the brain, I thought I would share a few tips from Guy Michael Davis for pouring good casts. It’s from his new DVD Fundamentals of Mold Making and Slipcasting, which is now shipping from the Ceramic Arts Daily Bookstore. Mike also shares his recipes for casting bodies. – Jennifer Harnetty, editor.
