Hello SANDRA and all my fellow art teachers,

What a GREAT job we have!!

I am reqesting any info you can give me reguarding the slip casting method.
Is it the same thing as mold making? I am teaching ceramics, and the teacher
I am replacing ordered 8 huge bottles of clip casting matterials. I also got
2 - 50lb bags of plaster! I have never really used this for a ceramics
course before. The directions say to shake well (not sure if I add water),
pour into a mold? and let dry. After it is solid, fire it to the recommended
temperature (which is between cone 05 - 06) So if anyone can give me the run
down on slip casting I would really appreciate it! Thanks in advance!!

John
