I have had good luck with drying tiles on tracing paper-a tip I got from Clayart
(another listserv). It does help to control warpage-we would make the tiles and
place them on boards, with tracing paper underneath the clay, and dry slowly
(plastic over for a few days, then removed, etc.)
Hope this helps! Good luck!
