gift for son's teacher-foot tile-question...

My son's teacher recently had a baby and I wanted to cast a tile of the baby's foot. I have taken an impression of his foot with dental alginate and poured a plaster cast. What medium should I use to now make a negative cast for the positive glass foot? Should I mix up some hydroperm-wait until it's...

graphite

I am looking for a resource for graphite. Does anyone know of a place in the Northeast? I wanted to try it. Also had a question about keeping holes open in jewelry when firing---Okay --dumb question ---(I know about fiber products) Can I use mechanical pencil "lead" for this? Anyone ever tried this?...

Before trying that --which will work. I would suggest you try 2 denture cleaner tablets and water --let it fizz and soak. If that doesn't work for the glass it's a great toilet bowl cleaner.
Maybe try baking soda and vinegar soak. Good luck!
