clay ornaments....

Recommended Posts

hi all,

just making some clay ornaments.

the clay is cheap and so is the firing.

have made a jetty, a boat, a tunnel and 3 rocks so far...

will put some pics up asap.

is also fun making them too, plus there is plenty of different clays.

Can someone do up a step by step format on this process. It would be interesting to see how it is done (for us total noobs at this sort of stuff) :D

Yea, someone please do that! i want one aswell. Also, where do you find a kiln (i think thats the word :P)

Is there any problems with leaching from these? Is the glaze safe once it has been kiln dried? Do you need to use special type of clay or just the standard stuff you get from the craft place? Sorry heaps of questions. :roll:

well people use clay in their tanks all the time and i reckon glaze is fine after it's fired. just my opinion tho you might wanna check.

i actually used stoneware clay not terracotta, think mine is called buff raku or something, looks like stone when it's fired.

there's plenty of clays and colours to choose from, give the pottery supplies place a call.

cheers
