making clay mold
I am using a kiln for glass fusing, and want to make a mold out of clay, Never worked with clay before, I have an idea how I would like the shape, but am unsure as to how to fire it, Once the clay has been shaped, do I then let it dry? and for how long, and at what temp do I fire it? I have a kiln that goes to 1700' is this going to be hot enough to set the clay? how long to fire it also. Any ideas? Do I need to take it elsewhere to have it fired? The mold that I am making is simple, just havent been able to find one that I can use. It would be a slump mold, that you drape the glass over the top
Thanks for any help!!
