> Hello! First, I want to thank everyone who gave me advice
> regarding the platter lesson I did with my Ceramics class last semester.
> We tried using the paperclay and it worked amazingly well. The students
> then painted their platters with acrylic paint. There were a couple
> platters that weren't quit finished when the other ones started cracking.
> We let them dry very slowly and there were no problems! I am planning on
> getting photos soon to share with the list. It might take me a while to
> get to this
> as I was out for gallbladder surgery and am slowly trying to catch up on
> everything and get things in order at school.

> Speaking of changes in paper, has anyone noticed that TRU-RAY's quality
> has changed? I used to love this paper, but it seemed to have changed last
> year. The colors are less vibrant and it seems more porous. It turns out
> they switched manufacturers. I really think the quality of supplies being
> made right now have gone down hill.
> On another note, anybody have experience making a wall hanging using
> scraps of long material? I saw a great wall hanging made out of recycled
> pieces of fabric. It was all attached to a branch which held it up. It
> looked like the pieces were all braided and weaved together and tied to
> this branch. Just thought I would throw it out there, see if anyone has
> done something similar with your classes.
