Casting with Paperplaster Moulds

I have remade all my moulds using the incredible paperplaster method (see previous posts) and they are now ready to use. The above images show the screening of the slip before pouring as well as filling the mould. Contrary to the usual practice There is no waiting time before the moulds are emptied of slip. This is done as soon as they have been filled resulting in a very thin cast. The pieces are bisque fired to 1000 C once dry. All fettling is done after bisque firing.
