from Nancy Gallagher Pottery - This is a 'not necessarily a clay tool' day. These styrofoam floral wreaths work like a treat for plate slump molds. I got this idea (sort of) from Vince Pitelka when he was explaining to me how he makes his slump molds from foam insulation sheets. I was in JoAnn's searching for something else, saw these, and thought, 'huh! Already cut for me'. And only $4.99 each. Couldn't pass them up.

Deb Schwartzkopf | "simple seams for altering cylinders".

This is just a COPPER CARBONATE WASH. I mixed about 1 teaspoon of copper carbonate in 250ml of boiling water. Brush on bisc ware, let dry then sponge off. if you find too much sponges off then the wash can be made to stick a bit with a bit of added gum, wood glue, wall paper paste ext. Then re fire to maturing temp. for the copper anything above 950c is ok.
