How big are the slabs that you are rolling? My experience with slabs
firstly is that it depends on the clay that you are using. Some clays
need a lot of wedging before rolling. I have frineds that have made large
tiles for murals and they always laid the slabs to dry on canvas and
covered them with plasic. This helped them to dry evenly and without
cracking.

Hope this answers your question.
