So, I'm pretty new at pouring molds...today I decided to try a larger item...a cute Snowman holding a shovel. I belt this mold up and start pouring from my Arizona Iced Tea jugs (nice and sturdy jugs...easy to handle!). I noticed some of the slip was a bit lumpy...I knew this wasn't going to be good...I asked my daughter to hand me another jug...it was extra watery...grrrr. I poured anyway...all of a sudden the slip level in the mold starts to go down. It's hot here, but not hot enough to make a mold suck up THAT much slip!!! Well, the slip was all over my work bench...and the garage floor! UGH! The mess is almost cleaned up!
I figure I either didn't have the belt on tight enough or the slip was just too lumpy. I will try again tomorrow...if I'm successful I'll post a picture of the greenware Snowman! :)
