Intermediate and Advanced ceramic students are learning a new technique. They are learning about hump molds, and in particular soft molds created by using a rice-filled panty hose leg.
I found the idea on pinterest and I followed the link to here. I thought this type of mold would be a wonderful addition to our ceramics studio. They would provide much versatility and would prove to be much more inexpensive than plaster molds.
Today the boys filled the stocking with rice…40 pounds to be exact. Tomorrow they begin to lay slabs on them.
