How To Make: Tiny Houses (Part 2)
March 4, 2011 § Leave a comment
So the blank shapes were left to set overnight under a piece of newspaper. It’s been more than 2 days since the last post, because that’s how long it’s taken me to finish carving out all the houses (about 40-odd pieces) in three separate sessions.

The little soldiers waiting for their faces…
10. But not quite yet! What I do is wait until the pieces are dry, and then use fine fine sandpaper to clean up the bits where the clay has kicked up. Then done with the shaping and on to firing and glazing!
That’s all for now…
