Flattening a Bad Slump from the Four Candle Bridge Mold

Postby donnawhitlock » Sun Jul 01, 2018 10:54 am

Hi - I have a piece that was slumped over the four candle bridge mold but turned out uneven, so I'd like to flatten and re-slump it.

Should this type of piece be flattened right side up, or upside down? Also, are there any recommendations for a firing schedule for this? Thanks!

I think the schedule you used for the first firing to make the flat tile would be fine. I would probably fire it same side up as your first firing.
