How to Make Pottery in Under a Week!
So you need to make something in a pinch, eh? Be it ornaments, decorative plates, jewelry, flower vases, you name it, it can be done using the magic of Laguna's Paper Clay and the bold colours of Stroke & Coat by Mayco.
Paper clay is a super resilient clay body that fires cone 04-10. It can dry quickly and even be fired damp!
- First, make your piece and allow it to dry over 1-2 days. You can speed up the drying process on Day 2 by putting a fan on it or setting it on a warm kiln.
- Add Stroke & Coat directly on the greenware. Paper clay is porous, so it may really suck up the glaze! Be sure to give 3 even heavy coats for an even application. It works even better if you're greenware is bone dry.
- Fire it as a single cone 5 glaze firing and voila!
KEEP IN MIND: Your pieces won't be food safe, but it will be full vitrified, glossy and durable as a decorative piece. If that ain't magic, I don't know what is!
