Sandcastles – grains holding together for a moment Posted on March 5, 2019March 5, 2019 by GramaTortoise Its so close! These pieces are made from powder loaded in plaster molds. How perfect the detail! How perfectly the kiln ran, no alarms! The kiln company, Paragon, (thank you kiln guru!) gave me advice on my kiln schedule and it was actually the source of all my grief with the controller. Of course theres still a distance to go – these have not fused together. Next time – higher temperature, longer hold time. The little marks poking out of the horses jaw are tool marks caused by me picking the wax out of the mold. So that technique needs to change. Progress! Soon, amazing and super incredible glass casting! Its coming!
