Vermiculite board

Postby Chris Lowry » Sun Dec 20, 2015 2:13 pm

So I carved out a vermiculite board to make a slumping mold... Do I need to put kiln wash on it before slumping?

I think no but the wife doesn't agree with me and now I'm doubting myself.

Yes! a generous coating. V board has a wicked tendency to stick to glass when both are hot.

Hey, she doubted you FIRST. :mrgreen:
HER last words were, "I'm melting, melting . . . " Dissenting opinions generally welcome for comic relief or personal edification. Sometimes both.
