501  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: Anybody up for another round of a Jim Henson swap? on: February 18, 2013 07:11:36 AM
Oh I would love a Henson swap.  Gotgrey.... I'd take a Snuffy off your hands if there are no other takers Smiley  Love all your stuffies (the kids still have HUGE discussion on who gets which stuffie from you as I hang on to my toothless going, "he's mine so don't even ask")
OK, this and a dragon swap... my only two swaps for a while....

502  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Discussion and Questions / Re: Non-toxic clays for food use - for in home baking on: February 18, 2013 06:49:09 AM
From what I've been reading about cookie molds (not cookie cutters...haven't found anything on them)...
bisque material is used and because of the porous quality, that actually helps release the dough.  The glaze creates a natural moisture vacuum which makes the dough stick. 

Hope this helps a bit!

507  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: MINECRAFT SWAP GALLERY!! on: February 12, 2013 09:33:46 AM
Received from crazyda and my son was so excited! We have started redoing his room (got sick half way thru it so I have two half empty rooms and the rest of the house is covered in stuff) so these are great additions...



A tissue box cover!



A photo holder (he's already decided what pictures are going on it and it's rotational schedule)




And potholders (which helped with our Mac and cheese last night)

Thank you again and thanks for being so understanding on all the delays!

If its the pot I  saw on your blog, then here's some info I dug up....It looks similar to raku/pit firing. 
hope this helps!

The Traditional Firing Process - Bark, Dung and Manure

A thin coat of grease is then applied by hand to increase the luster and reduce the drying shrinkage. If the pot is to have designs they are applied now with the slip solution and the pot is ready for firing. However, the temperatures reached in the firing of pottery today are not high enough to make a pot waterproof.

The potter still builds his or her primitive kiln from corrugated tin, racks, tin cans, whatever she has found to be successful for her. Pots are placed between two sheets of tin, not touching each other, which are then covered with bark. After lighting the bark, the tin becomes red hot with the actual firing lasting about 30 minutes. The pottery must be allowed to cool slowly. In order to achieve the black pottery, cow dung is mixed with the bark and when the fire reaches its maximum temperature, it is smothered with fine horse manure. This sooty smoke penetrates the pores and turns the pottery black. From this lengthy process come beautiful original works of art.
