I was just wondering when you guys cut your clay things. I'm more into making miniature food items.
I made a (sort of) millefiori watermelon log before and I cute it into slices immediately but they kinda stuck to my clay cutting blade and disfigured the watermelon a bit.
So what I'm asking is, when do you cut your clay things? Do you
1) leave your clay out to dry for a while, then cut it or
2) put it in the fridge and then cut it as it will harden a little bit in the fridge or
3) do you cure it in the oven until it is half cured, take it out and cut it then put it back in the oven?
Do all these methods work?
